Summary 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.
Key Findings - Despite China's 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 children's lives.
Synopsis Canadean's China's Two-Child Policy explores the Chinese government's decision in 2015 to abandon its one-child policy; considering key economic and demographic implications that might occur. It also highlights future concepts and innovation implications for FMCG manufacturers to consider based on two likely scenarios that might occur:
1) a short-term mini baby boom or
2) no changes to the current socio-economic issues China faces.
Reasons To Buy - Gain insight into the outcomes of China's two-child policy.
- Explore innovation opportunities for FMCG manufacturers should more births occur in China in the short-term future.
- Identify avenues for new product development for the current socio-economic issues China faces.

We have upgraded our forecast for world basic metals production for 2018 from 3.2% to 4.2%. Whilst we have downgraded the outlook across a number of economies as Section 232 tariffs and escalating trade tensions weigh on growth, this is more than offset by stronger-than-expected production in China.
Global automotive growth is expected to cool on slowing global trade and persistent trade policy uncertainty. Following last year's 5.3% expansion, the sector's output is expected to rise by 4.6% in 2018, and 3.5% in 2019. Once again, growth is being driven by the emerging markets - especially China, India, and Eastern Europe.
The global growth rate for 2018 is forecast to remain unchanged from its 2017 value at 3.7%. Driven by strong demand in emerging markets, we expect output growth to remain steady--although US tariffs and Chinese fiscal tightening both pose a risk to this sector.
We forecast growth in global consumer goods production to peak in 2018 at 3.8%. While several labour markets are beginning to see rising real wages, headwinds are mounting from trade tensions, rising inflationary pressures due to rising oil prices, and falling sentiment indicators. We expect global growth to fall to 3% in 2019.
