A world superpower is a state or a political and economic entity that is predicted to be or be in the process of becoming a superpower at some point in the 21st century. Previously it was believed that the Unites States of America met all the criteria to be a superpower, but this view has been challenged since the rise of China and the European Union that have already displaced the United States. The states of India, Russia and Brazil are also regarded as potential superpowers.

The present day nations that have claimed to become (or remain) superpowers during the 21st century:
  • United States of America
  • Federative Republic of Brazil
  • People's Republic of China
  • European Union
  • Republic of India
  • Russian Federation
Federative Republic of Brazil
Brazil is considered by a number of analysts and academicians as a potential superpower of the 21st century. It has also been predicted that Brazil will soon rise as Latin America's first superpower.

People's Republic of China
At the moment, China presents the most promising all-round profile of a potential superpower. China's rise is clear by its expanding share of trade in its Gross Domestic Produce.

Republic of India
Many publications and academics have discussed the potential of India of becoming a great power or eventually a superpower. Over the years India has been known as an underdog facing more challenges than advantages, yet despite these handicaps of significant poverty and social inequality, India is overcoming all of them.

Russian Federation
Russia has been suggested by some as a potential candidate for resuming superpower status in the 21st century. The country intends to reemerge as a full fledged superpower.
