Population forecast for London (UK) 2019-2041

By 2041 the population of London is forecasted to reach 10.3 million people, an increase of 1.2 million people when compared with 2019. While it has seen quite a steep rise in its population in recent years London’s population was relatively stable throughout the 1980s and even decreased slightly towards the end of that decade.

UK Population forecast
Like London, the population of the United Kingdom is expected to continue to grow well into the middle of the century. By 2046 the population of the UK is estimated to be over 76.3 million people and increase of over 20 million people when compared with the population figures for 1976.

London looms large
In terms of the largest urban areas in the United Kingdom, Greater London is by far the largest. Even if the built-up areas around Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds were combined, London would still be the largest city in the UK, highlighting the sheer size of the UK capital.
