Baby diaper production down in Japan.

Baby Diaper Production Down In Japan

The production of disposable baby diapers in Japan has steadily decreased through 1991. Production in the third quarter was 49,795 tons, a decrease of 13.4% from the previous term. Total production for the first nine months of 1991 also decreased 7.6% compared with the previous year. A more than 8% decrease is expected for all of 1991.

The decline in the baby diaper market is attributed to market penetration at 70% and a decline in the country's birth rate.
