Indian Century

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Indian Century[1][2] is the idea that the 21st century will be dominated by India, as the 20th century is often called the American Century,[3] and the 19th century as Pax Britannica (British Peace).[4] The phrase is used particularly in the assertion that the economy of India could overtake[5][6] the economy of the United States and economy of China as the largest national economy in the world,[7] a position it held[8] from 1 to 1500 CE and in 1700 CE.[9][10]

India has created North–South Transport Corridor as an alternative to the Belt and Road Initiative policy initiative of China (PRC),[11][12][13] to link in with Iran, Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. In 2017, India and Japan[14][15] joined together to form Asia-Africa Growth Corridor, to better integrate the economies of South, Southeast, and East Asia with Oceania and Africa.[14][15] India also engages in Quadrilateral Security Dialogue and Malabar (naval exercise) for China containment policy.

According to the report named "Indian Century: Defining India's Place in a Rapidly Changing Global Economy" by IBM Institute for Business Value, India is predicted to be among the world’s highest-growth nations over the coming years.[16][17][18]


Top five countries by military expenditure in 2016.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.[19]

One of the key factors includes its populous democracy.[20][21] As per United Nations report, India will overtake China to become the world's most populous nation by 2022.[22][23]

Economists and researchers at Harvard University have projected India's 7% projected annual growth rate through 2024 will continue to put it ahead of China, making India the fastest growing major economy in the world.[24][25] In 2017, the Center for International Development at Harvard University published a research study[26] projecting that India has emerged[26] as the economic pole of global growth by surpassing China and is expected to maintain its lead over the coming decade.[26]

India is generally considered an emerging great power due to its large and stable population and its rapidly growing economic and military sectors.[27]
