Muslim Births Projected to Outnumber Christian Births Globally by 2035
Pew Research Center Within 20 years, the number of Muslim babies being born is expected to surpass Christian births — though there will still be more Christians in the world.
Muslims currently account for about 24 percent of the world population, compared with 31 percent for Christians, according to the Pew Research Center.
The study projects that two decades later, between 2055 and 2060, around 36 percent of babies will be born to Muslim mothers and 35 percent to Christian women. That will amount to a gap of 6 million babies.
