The Economic Times - - Around The World -

The num­ber of Chi­nese men who could end up sin­gle by 2030, and will have to look for brides out­side China, a re­searcher warned on Tuesday. The num­ber of un­mar­ried Chi­nese men be­tween 35 and 59 will reach 15 mil­lion in 2020 and 30 mil­lion in 2050, Wang Guangzhou, a re­searcher at the Chi­nese Acad­emy of So­cial Sci­ences, said. As per Yuan Xin, a pro­fes­sor at Nankai Univer­sity, the num­ber will likely ex­ceed 30 mil­lion in 2050, as gen­der bias in favour of males at birth is still high in China.
