What is the Silver economy?
The share of global population over age 60 is likely to rise to historically unprecedented levels. According to the latest estimates, by 2050 there will be two billion people 60 years old and over (22% of world population). In 2050, world population is projected to be 3.6 times larger than it was in 1950.
The Silver Economy is often referred to as the economy of aging well. It is a cross-market focusing on products, solutions or services for the elderly: home accommodation, transport, food industry, insurance, robotics, health and e-health, communications, Internet, sports and leisure.
