World’s population will reach 9.9 billion by 2050

A new report by the Population Reference Bureau predicts the world’s population could reach 9.9 billion by 2050, which exceeds the current UN predictions suggesting 9.6 billion people. There is already an estimated 7.6 billion people on Earth today, so if this prediction is true, the global population will see an increase of 33 per cent in 35 years.

While both the UN and PRB reports predict Africa to see the most rapid population growth during this period, the developed world will also see a surge.
