    The UN Report said that the distribution of global populations varies significantly across different regions. India’s diaspora, which is the largest in the world, is dispersed across various prominent destination countries. Between 2000 and 2020, the size of the migrant population abroad grew for nearly all countries and areas of the world. India experienced the most significant gain (nearly 10 million) during that period.

    In this blog, we will analyze the growth trends from 2010 to 2022 of the top 10 countries with the most prominent Indian population, shedding light on the factors driving this expansion.

    United States of America (USA)

    The Indian diaspora in the United States showed remarkable growth from 2.84 million in 2010 to 5.13 million in 2022. Factors such as employment opportunities, advanced education systems, and a diverse cultural atmosphere contributed to the steady increase in the Indian population.

    United Arab Emirates (UAE)

    From 2.21 million in 2010 to 4.59 million in 2022, the Indian population in the United Arab Emirates substantially increased. With its substantial economic opportunities and welcoming environment for expatriates, the UAE attracted many Indian immigrants during this period.

    Malaysia

    During 2010-2022, Malaysia witnessed a consistent influx of 2.32  to 3.34  million Indian immigrants. The Indian population in Malaysia grew steadily, with Indian professionals contributing to sectors such as information technology and manufacturing.

    Saudi Arabia

    Saudi Arabia has been a preferred destination for Indian expatriates, particularly in construction, healthcare, and engineering. The Indian population in Saudi Arabia continued to grow significantly from 2.20 to 4.59 million during the 2010-2022 period.

    I have a friend who immigrated to Canada during this period due to favorable policies. It’s fascinating to see how these factors discussed in the article influenced real-life decisions.

    Economic opportunities and political stability have been equally influential apart from historical ties that are the primary reason for Indian population growth in the UAE.

    The US, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and the UK are important travel destinations because of their economic potential, educational possibilities, familial links, and lifestyle preferences. Singapore, Qatar, Canada, and Australia are more possible centers.
