In 1979, the Communist Party in China introduced its one-child policy to curtail population growth. Over the decades, the policy has led to multiple demographic issues in Chinese society - a large aging population, gender imbalance, and shrinking workforce. In October 2015, the Chinese government announced its decision to abandon the one-child policy, allowing all couples to have two children.
- Despite Chinas intentions to reverse the multiple demographic issues it currently faces, the two-child policy is unlikely to yield anticipated change.
- A short-term mini baby boom could occur as a result of more births in China in the near future, which opens avenues for FMCG manufacturers to target different stages of the new childrens lives.
