The 20 Most Populous Cities in the World by 2100 | Animated Map

Boy is the world going to change over the next century.

Metropolises like Moscow, New York, Tokyo, Cairo, or Rio de Janeiro are spread apart with very different geographic and cultural settings, and practically every continent today can claim at least one of the world’s 20 most populous cities.

In the future, things will be very different, according to projections from the Global Cities Institute.

In fact, over the next 80 years or so, some cities will literally 10x or 20x in size – turning into giant megacities that have comparable populations to entire countries like modern-day Germany, France, or the United Kingdom.

The most interesting part?

None of these cities will be in the Americas, Europe, China, or Australia.


According to predictions from the Global Cities Institute, these will be the biggest cities in the world in 2100:

  1. Lagos, Nigeria
  2. Kinshasa, Democratic republic of Congo
  3. Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
  4. Mumbai, India
