Taiwan’s population to peak in 2020

As of September 2019, Taiwan’s population was 23,593,000 people.  In 2020, Taiwan’s population would reach 23,599,000 people.

In 2033, Taiwan’s population is estimated to be 22,907,000 people, and by 2050, Taiwan’s population is estimated to be 19,841,000.

In 2020, it is estimated that 181,000 Taiwanese seniors will die and 178,000 Taiwanese babies will be born.

As of September 2019,  129,928 Taiwanese babies were born and 131,801 Taiwanese seniors died.

In 2018, 172,784 Taiwanese seniors died and 181,601 babies were born.

In November 2019, Taiwan has 3,500,000 old people.  In 2026, it is estimated that there will be 4,887,000 people over 65 years old, constituting over 20% of the total population.

Based on these numbers, the estimated total population of Taiwan in 2026 would be (4887000 = 20% X) or 24,435,000 people.

In recent years, the number of foreign brides in Taiwan has lessened from an average of some 10,000 to an average of 7,000 to 8,000 a year.

This is why it is extremely urgent that Taiwan opens itself to immigration of female Syrian Kurdish refugees and their children to boost Taiwan’s declining population.
