The Population and Development Review's recent study found that the rate of fraternal twin births has risen significantly in developed countries since the 1970s. This trend has impacted the baby products industry as the demand for advanced double strollers has increased accordingly.
From 1975 to 2011, the rate of fraternal twin births has risen across developed nations; from 9.5 to 16.9 per 1000 births within the United States, from 9.9 to 16.1 within England and Wales, from 9.2 to 17.2 within Germany, from 9.3 to 17.4 within France, from 9.6 to 21.2 within Denmark and from 5 to 14.6 within South Korea.
Generally, this trend is due to women deciding to have their first child later in life alongside the proliferation of IVF and ovarian stimulation which raises the chance of a multiple pregnancy.
