Amidst news of the Philippine peso hitting its lowest slump in a decade, a new report from professional services network PricewaterhouseCoopers has predicted the 32 most powerful economies in the world by 2050, based on projected global GDP and purchasing power.

In 33 years' time, the global economy could "more than double in size, far outstripping population growth due to continued technology-driven productivity improvements," writes Bill Martin, a reporter for Business Insider. 

"Many of the world's current powerhouse economies like Japan and China will have slipped down global rankings, replaced by countries such as India and Indonesia, which are currently emerging markets," adds Martin. 

The full report by PwC looks into "economic productivity" and "standards of living" across a certain period. The Philippines makes the 19th spot, while the United States has been overtaken by China and India. 

All numbers cited below are in US dollars: 

32. Netherlands — $1.496 trillion 

31. Colombia — $2.074 trillion

30. Poland — $2.103 trillion

29. Argentina — $2.365 trillion
