About Us

Our Company

 Global Demographics' online database and apps provide forecasts of the demographic profile of 75 countries, 31 Provinces and 625 cities of China.  The forecasts, which run from 2016 to 2035 (with historic data from 2005) include the basic demographic profile (age, by gender) , births, deaths,  migration, households, labour force, household income distribution and expenditure patterns. Theapps allow users to vary assumptions and see the impact of those changes on other variables.

The Company was formed in 1997 (as Asian Demographics Ltd) and has been building its databases, forecast models, and reports since then – originally for countries in Asia, and then, as a result of client demand, for countries throughout the world. After 18 years of development the coverage is now 75 countries and also China and India (each being around 20% of the world’s population) by sub regions (in the case of China down to all 2,852 counties)

The databases are comprehensive in their coverage extending beyond basic demographics to also provide profiles of households, lifecycle stages of the population, labour force, education of population and workforce, distribution of households by income, and how that money is spent by income level. Thereby it provides a unique single source profile of the future nature of the consumer aspects of each economy.

The databases, forecast models and forecast process (described in greater detail on the page titled ‘methodology’ are proprietary to Global Demographics Ltd. The models are continuously improved, and the equations are re estimated every time new data is added to a country/region data file.


We are a small group of individuals who specialise in data preparation, analysis and interpretation. We are located across a number of different countries depending on where the required expertise could be found. All of us have been with the company for at least 10 years. With extensive use of networking technology such as Microsoft online, OneDrive and SharePoint we are used to working remotely, but closely.

Our Clients

Obviously who they are is confidential to them and us, but they can be summarized as being biased to large multi-national consumer goods and services companies.

We have just over 2,000 clients of varying size of relationship with us. Many have been clients with us since the initial 3 years when the company was first set up. The consumer product and service focus is a function of the type of information we provide – specifically how the consumer will change over time.

In addition to direct client contact our reports are also available on Bloomberg and S&P
