December 25, 2019 | State of the Market Report

The planet is seeing a rapidly aging population with more and more unique needs. By 2050, at least 25% of the population of developed economies will be aged 65 years and over. While longer lifespans mean increased health risks, a large proportion of the elderly also lead active and healthy lifestyles. Especially in developed economies, most seniors have accumulated sizable savings and look for new and meaningful experiences as they enter the next stage in their lives. This report will examine how two developed Asian economies are facing an increasingly aging society and how innovators there are finding new business opportunities. Our report also examines new and emerging technologies that address needs in a healthy, active, and productive aging society.
