In general, global life expectancy is on track to increase by the year 2030, according to the study released on Monday, but the U.S.is predicted to continue to lag behind its peers. French girls, with an average of 89, and Swiss boys, almost 84, will have the highest life expectancies in Europe.

Life expectancy is expected to rise in many countries around the world, but in the United States, that increase is predicted to be smaller than in other countries, a new study finds. The lower outlook is due to factors such as the lack of universal healthcare and obesity.It puts the U.S. on the same level as middle-income countries such as Mexico and Croatia.

Oldest nation: Life expectancy in South Korea is to top 90 for those born in 2030.

The bottom of the women's table is held by Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria and none of these will have hit the 80-year lifespan by 2030.

As well as calculating life expectancy at birth, the researchers also predicted how long those aged 65 in 2030 would be likely to live.

Scientists believe that average life expectancy will hit 90, a figure once considered impossible, by 2030.

A century ago, the US had some of the tallest people in the world, a marker of good nutrition early in life. Ezzati is a professor at Imperial College London's School of Public Health in England. Right now, American women live to an average of 81, while men live to an average of 77.

"I don't believe we're anywhere near the upper limit of life expectancy - if there even is one".

The prediction is both a blessing and a burden as more of us can look forward to getting the most out of our golden years.

The forecasted increase echoes the dramatic improvement in life expectancy from the 1960s till today - when the average increased by 19 years between 1960 and 2014, the study notes.

In contrast to the United States, South Korea "has a remarkable investment in early childhood nutrition", has been taking advantage of medical advances and technology across its population and has some of the world's lowest obesity and hypertension rates, Ezzati said. However, it is important that policies to support the growing older population are in place. The world's leading power is handicapped by its health system. The analysis does not link specific causes of death to various countries' life expectancies.

To estimate life expectancy, the researchers used a new approach that combined several statistical models.

In Canada, the life expectancy at birth for females in 2010 has been pegged at 83.94, compared with an expected 87.09 for those born in 2030.
