Muslims are expected to

religions, primarily due to
higher fertility rates.
At mid-century, Muslims will nearly equal
Christians – the world’s largest group – in
size.
India is expected to be the
country with the largest
number of Muslims –
more than 310 Million.

The State Of Religious Diversity

Think atheist population is skyrocketing and Christianity is dying? You're wrong! The percentage of population who do not identify with any religion (unaffiliated or atheist) has been growing steadily in the past few years. But in coming decades, religiously unaffiliated people are expected to make up a declining share of the world’s population, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center. The world is projected to become more religious — not less.

How religious diversity will prevail in the time to come? What will be the future of world’s major religious group? How we will cope with atheism and continuous decline in Christian population? Who’ll take the crown in 2050? Pew Research attempts to answer these questions by projecting the changing size and movement of different religious and non-religious groups through the year 2050 based on a variety of demographic factors.
