China, India, Brazil, Iran: Superpowers of the Future

Updated on January 11, 2017

For last many years, a discussion is going on in print and electronic media that who will be the next super power. The list of superpowers includes names of many countries. But I think, that not any single country will be a superpower in the world in future, as their will be many powerful countries in the world. Powerful in the sense of economy, science and technology, military, culture and so many things.

But many countries can never become powerful, and few will surely become. This will depend on two things. First is the population and second is the geographical area. Population and geographical area are two most essential things to become a super power.

Let us have a look at the list top 20 countries who have a large number of population and a list of top 20 countries who have biggest geographical area.

1. China
2. India
3. European Union
4 United States
5. Indonesia

10. Bangla Desh
11. Japan
12. Mexico
13. Philipines
14. Vietnam
15. Ethiopia

Coming Super Powers

Now let us see the common names in both of the lists. They are:

1. China
2. United States
3. Russia
4. India
5. European Union
6. Brazil
7. Indonesia
8. Iran
9. Mexico

This is the list of the countries, who will be powerful countries in the world in near future. This list is not according to Ranking, we need a complicated calculation for it.

Most of the lists of future superpowers have ignored Mexico, Iran and Indonesia, but we should not ignore these countries as they have potentials of being a superpower.

There is another country which I would like to add to this list, and it is Congo from Africa
