How is Net Migrations calculated?

The difference between immigrants and emigrants makes up the net migrations of a country. If the net migration numbers for the year are positive and indicated above with green coloring. Then more people immigrated than emigrated to Germany for that year, equal to the number displayed.

Germany will see an increase of net migrations by the year 2100.

Why is the chart for future net migrations mostly flat?

Predicting and projecting future movements of population is extremely hard. Especially, the further you move into the future. Thus, the scientist and data collectors of the United Nations tend to add a flat number when reasonable projections can't be made.
