The population of the world is increasing day by day. It is anticipated that by mid-November, this number is likely to hit Eight Billion. It is also estimated that by 2023 India will become the most populated country globally, leaving behind China, as reported by the World Population Prospectus 2022.

The United States Secretary General Antonio Guterres says, “This year’s World Population Day falls during a milestone year, when we anticipate the birth of the Earth’s eight billionth inhabitant. This is an occasion to celebrate our diversity, recognize our common humanity, and marvel at advancements in health that have extended lifespans and dramatically reduced maternal and child mortality rates.” He added, “At the same time, it is a reminder of our shared responsibility to care for our planet and a moment to reflect on where we still fall short of our commitments to one another.”

However, the percentage of increase in the global population has significantly dropped since 1950 and in 2020, it fell below 1%.

Considering the given stats by the United Nations, it is easily predictable that by 2030, the global population will hit 8.5 billion and by 2050, it would be nearly 9.7 billion.

Similarly, if the trend continues, it is expected that the population of the world will become around 10.4 billion by 2080 and it will be the same till 2100.
