Futurologist Peter Cochrane has predicted how he believes the world will cope with this extra demand, and which technologies are set to revolutionise medical treatment over the next 25 years.

His forecasts include lighting that helps people recover from illness, virtual surgeries and wearables that detect cancer molecules.
