Uzbekistan’s population is currently growing at a steady pace. The current population is 33.47 million people, which is expected to increase over the next few decades until its peaks at 44.4 million people in 2070. By the end of the century, the population is estimated to be about 42.27 million people.
Uzbekistan is currently growing at a rate of 1.48% per year. The population growth rate has decreased from 1.66% in 2016 to 1.48%, a trend that is expected to continue until 2070 when the population growth rate will dip into the negatives.
The current fertility rate in Uzbekistan is 2.43 births per woman and the median age is 27.8 years, allowing the population to continue to grow. While the fertility rate is high enough for population replacement now, it is less than half of what it was in 1980 when the fertility rate was 5.46 births per woman. This declining fertility rate trend is expected to continue over time.
