RANKED: These will be the 20 most powerful economies in 2030

LONDON — Emerging markets will start to dominate rankings of the world’s top economies by 2030, according to a report published earlier this year.

The report, published by PricewaterhouseCoopers, finds that emerging markets such as India and Brazil will increasingly challenge the economic dominance of the USA and China, while others slip behind.

The report ranks countries by their projected global gross domestic product by purchasing power parity (PPP).

PPP is a model which describes the purchasing power, and therefore value, of a given currency.
