The way cities are evolving and expanding has been a challenging issue and several urban growth models were proposed. Most of these models have common objectives but they differ in terms of implementation or theoretical assumptions. Urban growth modelling projects that simulate urban spatial change, across the globe, have been reviewed in this study with a view to providing reference for future urban growth modelling development. The mathematical concepts of the modelling techniques were critically examined for holistic understanding of their key components and also to provide a broad description of the existing urban growth modelling works, which has always been ignored in the literature.
