Share this article

The world meeting for innovation in Ageing Well within the B2B realm is set to unfold on September 16th and 17th at the Palais des Festivals of Cannes. The SilverEco & Ageing Well International Festival encompasses six distinct events : Expo Forum, International Awards Gala Ceremony, an Educational Program featuring expert panel discussions and conferences, pre-qualified business meetings, networking lunches, and the SilverEco Study Tour.

An international market focus

The world’s population is ageing and will continue to do so in the coming years.

While we have just reached the 8 billion inhabitants on earth, the number of people aged 65 and over is increasing every year and represents already more than 10% of the population !

The rise in population is attributed, in part, to a decline in mortality rates, evidenced by the rise in life expectancy at birth. Worldwide, life expectancy reached 72.8 years in 2019, marking an almost 9-year increase since 1990. Projections suggest that continued decreases in mortality could lead to a global average longevity of approximately 77.2 years by 2050.

The proportion of the global population aged 65 years or older is anticipated to increase from 10% in 2022 to 16% in 2050. During that time, the projected number of individuals aged 65 years and above worldwide is expected to surpass twice the count of children under the age of 5 and be roughly equivalent to the number of children under the age of 12.
