Map of the TIMBI countries in red

TIMBI is an acronym for five countries projected to be leading emerging economies, Turkey, India, Mexico, Brazil, and Indonesia, in the next half century. All five countries have relatively large populations, positive population growth rates, and are democracies.

The term and grouping was devised by Jack A. Goldstone in February 2011 as a replacement for the BRIC concept which following recent reports stating that Russia's and China's (the R and C in BRIC) growth would not be as strong as expected. Their unfavorable demographic patterns, shrinking workforces and decrease in exports are all expected to harm their future growth.
