Nigeria, India, China and the United States to become dominant powers by the year 2100

Nigeria, yes Nigeria, India, China and the United States are expected to become world dominant powers by the year 2100 according to a  report published in The Lancet on Wednesday.

By the end of the century, the world will be multipolar, with India, Nigeria, China and the United States the dominant powers, said The Lancet editor Richard Horton, describing the study as outlining “radical shifts in geopolitical power.

Definitions of multipolarity
1st definition: A multipolar system is a system in which power is distributed at least among 3 significant poles concentrating wealth and/or military capabilities and able to block or disrupt major political arrangements threatening their major interests.

The report projects the world’s population to peak at 9.73 billion in 2064 before falling back to 8.79 billion in 2100.

Sub-Saharan Africa, meanwhile, will triple in size to some 3 billion people, with Nigeria alone expanding to almost 800 million in 2100, second only to India’s 1.1 billion.

The US is expected to retain its status as the world’s largest economy until 2050 when it will be overtaken by China.

This will however reverse by 2100, with the US taking back it's status as the world’s largest economy.

Indonesia could become the 12th largest economy globally, while Nigeria -- currently 28th -- is projected to crack the top 10. 

In Nigeria, the active labour force will expand from 86 million today to more than 450 million in 2100.

These tectonic shifts will also reshuffle the pecking order in terms of economic clout, the researchers forecast.

Australia will also rise up the economic ranks before the end of the century from being the world’s 12th biggest economy in 2017 to the eighth by 2100 putting it just behind the UK.
