Explore the latest strategic trends, research and analysis Reports of the death of organized religion have been exaggerated. According to recent research, the growth of religious populations worldwide is projected to be 23 times larger than the growth of the unreligious between 2010 and 2050. Today, seven of the G8 nations have Christian-majority populations.

But by 2050 only one of the leading economies is projected to have a majority Christian population — the United States. The other mega economies in 2050 are projected to include a country with a Hindu majority Indiaa Muslim majority Indonesiaand two with exceptionally high levels of religious diversity China and Japan.

How religious will the world be in 2050?

As religious diversity and religious populations grow, so does their potential impact, creating new challenges and opportunities for societies, governments and economies. The impact of religion is on the rise on a global scale. By the middle of this century, the number of people affiliated with a religion is expected to grow by 2.

In terms of population shares, this is significantly lower than the peak in the 1970s under communism when nearly one in five people worldwide were religiously unaffiliated, according to the World Religion Database.

The economic transformations of China and India are common knowledge.

But what is less well known is that the five leading economies of 2050 are projected to represent one of the most religiously diverse groupings in recent memory.

Below are the main takeaways of global religious and economic change, ordered by the projected size of religious groups in 2050. Christianity The growth of the global Christian population is projected to be about the same rate as overall global population growth between 2010-2050. Economic growth among the global Christian population is expected to increase, but be significantly less than economic growth in the world as a whole.

In the years ahead, the global distribution of economic influence associated with Christian populations is expected to remain largely dominated by the Americas, with Europe slightly decreasing in influence and Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia-Pacific regions slightly increasing. Islam The number of Muslims in the world is expected to nearly double between 2010 and 2050 and Muslims are expected to lead the world in population growth compared with other religious groups.

Economic growth among the global Muslim population is expected to significantly outpace global economic growth. India is expected to have the largest Muslim population of any country in the world by 2050, surpassing Indonesia. Religiously Unaffiliated The growth of the global religiously unaffiliated population is slowing at a much faster rate than global population growth.

  2. During much of the 20th Century, Islam has become a more popular faith among many people around the world, and has become a very common part of 20th Century life.

Population growth of the religious unaffiliated population in the Americas is expected to be substantially higher than growth in other regions of the world. Economic growth among the global religiously unaffiliated population is expected to be on par with global economic growth in the years ahead. The global distribution of economic influence associated with religiously unaffiliated populations is expected to grow in the Asia-Pacific region, with economic influence decreasing slightly in Europe and the Americas.

Economic growth among the global Hindu population is expected to significantly outpace global economic growth, mostly led by the rising economy of India. The vast majority of economic resources available to Hindus lies in India, but Hindus in the United States and the United Kingdom also contribute significantly to the global economic resources available to Hindus. Judaism The growth of the global Jewish population is slowing more quickly than the world overall; however, the number of Jews is still anticipated to be about two million more in 2050 than in 2010 increasing from about 14 million in 2010 to slightly more than 16 million worldwide in 2050.

Economic growth among the global Jewish population is expected to increase, but be significantly less than economic growth in the world as a whole. In the years ahead, the global distribution of economic influence associated with Jewish populations is expected to slightly decrease in the Americas with corresponding slight increases among Jewish populations living in the Middle East- North Africa region.

Religion in Everyday Life

China holds about two-thirds of the global economic resources available to other religions. Data limitations prevent their individual analysis on a global basis. They are included, however, to account for all people worldwide, recognizing that the results have limited information for any one particular group. These religions include folk religions often identified along ethnic lines and sometimes mixed with local beliefs of other major religions.

Religious Influence in Society

Examples of these folk religions include traditional African religions and Chinese ancestral belief systems. Hindu devotees with earthen oil lamps pray inside a temple during the Navratri festival in Chandigarh, India.
