Will the global population surpass 10 billion by the end of the century?

 All predictions have pointed to yes - until presently. Regularly growing estimations from the UN have commonly been the status quo.

A recent analysis from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation implies that the world population may begin shrinking well before 2100.

The World Population in 2100, by Country

In 2015, the United Nations prognosticated that the world population is firmly growing over the years:
2030: 8.5 billion
2050: 9.7 billion
2100: 10.9 billion

In contradiction, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation draws a contrasting panorama. It predicts the world population to peak at 9.7 billion in 2064. Following this path, there could be 8.8 billion people in 2100.

The main arguments behind this analysis: higher life expectancies, higher educational attainment, contraceptive availability, and lower fertility rates.
