NEW DELHI (DataLEADS/ANN) - Out of the 10 largest world economies of the world, four will be from Asia with China and India leading the world by 2050, according to the PwC report.

Recent years have seen the beginning of a radical shift in the global economic power towards many emerging markets. Emerging economies have stronger growth potential than current advanced economies.

The PwC report highlights that by 2050, emerging economies such as Indonesia will be larger than the UK and France and Pakistan is likely to overtake Italy and Canada (on a PPP basis). In terms of growth, Vietnam, India and Bangladesh could be the fastest growing economies over the period to 2050.

Growth in E7 countries will continue to outpace that of the G7.

Two and half decades ago, E7 were 35% the size of the G7 in PPP terms. Twenty-five years later, these emerging economies had overtaken the G7. In coming 25 years, the E7 could be double the size of the G7 by 2040, marking a significant shift in global economic power.
