By 2050, the world population is estimated to surpass the 9 billion mark (9,000,000,000). Urban population (people living in a city) has experienced a tremendous increase over the last century (220 million at the beginning of the century to 2.8 billion at the end). As the population rises this will result in swelling of existing cities and rise in the number of new cities, so this list will change over time.
