Most of the worlds largest exporters are facing declining domestic populations (0-64yr/olds) and demand. But now these exporters are also facing the prospect of declining global demand as the core population among the world’s primary importers is set to peak.
The chart below shows the annual core population (0-64yr/old) change of the OECD representing America, most of Europe, and the bulk of the worlds wealthy nations (OECD members), plus China, Brazil, and Russia. This core population growth peaked in 1968 at +31 million a year and has fallen 90% to just 3 million a year as of 2016. The core population of the combined OECD+C,B,R is estimated to peak out in 2018 and by 2050, decline by < -246> million or < -9%>.
