A prediction: the world's most powerful economies in 2030

PricewaterhouseCoopers has released its predictions for the most powerful economies in the world by 2030.

The report, titled The long view: how will the global economic order change by 2050? ranked 32 countries by their projected global gross domestic product by purchasing power parity (PPP).

PPP is used by macroeconomists to determine the economic productivity and standards of living among countries across a certain time period.

While PricewaterhouseCoopers's findings show some of the same countries right near the top of the list in 13 years, they also have numerous economies slipping or rising massively by 2030.

Check out which countries made the list. All numbers cited in the slides are in US dollars and at constant values (for reference, the US's current PPP is $18.562 trillion):

  1. Netherlands - $1.08 trillion

  2. Colombia - $1.111 trillion

  3. South Africa - $1.148 trillion

  4. Vietnam - $1.303 trillion

  5. Bangladesh - $1.324 trillion

  6. Argentina - $1.342 trillion

  7. Poland - $1.505 trillion

  8. Malaysia - $1.506 trillion

  9. Philippines - $1.615 trillion

  10. Australia - $1.663 trillion

  11. Thailand - $1.732 trillion

  12. Nigeria - $1.794 trillion

  13. Pakistan - $1.868 trillion

  14. Egypt - $2.049 trillion

  15. Canada - $2.141 trillion

  16. Spain - $2.159 trillion

  17. Iran - $2.354 trillion
