Muslims to reach ۳۰% of the world's population by ۲۰۵۰
Pew Research Center (PRC) estimates Muslims will reach ۲.۷۶ billions or ۲۹.۷ percent of the world's population by ۲۰۵۰ - a rise of ۱.۱۶۱ billion. Meanwhile the community in the U.S. is expected to double from ۰.۹ percent to ۲.۱ percent.

Hawzah News Agency (Washington, D.C​, US) -  US - based think tank Pew Research Center (PRC) estimates that Muslims will reach ۲.۷۶ billions or ۲۹.۷ percent of the world's population by ۲۰۵۰ - a rise of ۱.۱۶۱ billion.

According to a 2015 and 2017 study by PRC, Sub-Saharan Africa will comprise 24.3 percent of Muslims worldwide in 2050, while Asia will host around 52.8 percent - a drop from 61.7 percent in 2010.  

 

The Middle East and North Africa will remain steady at 20 percent, growing by just 0.2 percent from 2010 to 2050.

Even though numbers of Islamophobic attacks are occurring at higher rates in the U.S., the community in the U.S. is expected to double from 0.9 percent to 2.1 percent. 

 

These figures are attributed to recent migration and demographic patterns. 

"Muslims make up a majority of the population in 49 countries around the world," the 2017 report states.

 

Indonesia currently hosts the largest Muslim community with 209 million people -87.2 percent of the country's population - which will see a rise of 50 million by the year 2050. 

Coming in second is India, with roughly 176 million Muslims, or around 14.4 percent of its population. Globally, by 2050, India will take first place with 310 million Muslims.
