Geriatrics and Gerontology

Rising geriatric population base coupled with growing number of chronic diseases and increasing number of long term care services drives the geriatric gerontology services market size over the forecast timeframe. As per the UN estimates, elderly population is estimated over 800 million in 2012, projected to surpass 2,000 billion by 2050. The global geriatric research market was valued at US$ 599.6 billion in 2015 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2016 – 2024). Moreover, growing oldest old number of people who are susceptible to several medical complications such as neurological, respiratory, orthopaedic and cardiovascular diseases coupled with increase in the advancement of technology such as the development of specialty robots skilled for assisting old people in carrying out day to day operations is anticipated to drive the geriatric care services market share.

Geriatrics and Palliative Nursing

The advanced palliative care market in Europe is projected to reach USD 4,896.5 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. The global market for palliative care is expected to flourish over the forecast period of 2017-2027 due to increasing awareness about physical, social and psychological, needs of patients with life-threatening diseases and their families. Majority of people receiving hospice care are the cancer patients, according to WHO. Increasing incidence of life-threatening diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and infective diseases is anticipated to be the major growth driver for the global palliative care market. Other factors responsible for rise in global palliative care market can be growing number of palliative care centres worldwide, extending application for homecare, increasing number of qualified physicians for hospice & palliative care, expanding aging demographics etc.

Geriatric Medication

Ageing increases the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disorders, arthritis, and respiratory disorders that require continuous monitoring. Also, ageing decreases bone density that makes it a challenge for the geriatric population to continuously manage their medical needs and perform their daily activities. The global geriatric medicine market was valued at nearly USD 540 billion in 2015. One of the key factors attributing to its rapid growth includes rapidly increasing geriatric population base. According to the estimates published by the United Nations in 2012, the global geriatric population was estimated to be nearly 809.4 million, and is anticipated to reach nearly 1.13 billion by 2022 and exceed a value of over 2 billion by 2050. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of various target diseases, decreasing immunity levels, and the significant improvements in the healthcare systems across the globe are also significantly driving the market growth.

Geriatrics and Elderly Care

The market for products and care for seniors is expected to increase from almost $320 billion in 2013 to $436.6 billion by 2018, representing a five-year compound annual growth rate of 6.4%, according to a new market research report by BCC Research. The world population of people aged at least 65 years is growing at an unprecedented pace, driven by better healthcare, nutrition and a dramatic decrease in infectious disease exposure. The last few years have witnessed changing demographics and an increasing life-expectancy of the global population, resulting in the rapid growth of a geriatric population requiring medical support. Also, a changing trend in the form of absence of family based caregiving as well as changing consumer preferences pertaining to the type of medical care is also emerging in several countries. These factors will primarily drive revenue growth of the elder care market across the globe. These factors have resulted in the widespread adoption of elder care, as a result of which the global elder care services market is already a billion dollar market, likely to grow steadily at 8.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. The global market for elder care represents an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 72.1 Bn in 2018 over 2017 and incremental opportunity of US$ 840.2 Bn between 2017 and 2025. In Europe the institutional care segment will remain the most lucrative, with a market attractiveness index of 2.6.

Geriatrics and Ageing Biology

Biology of Ageing defined as a series of biochemical activities due to internal and external factors, can lead to bodily degeneration/disorders as well as affect a person’s health and quality of life. Antiaging products and services help to restore and retain health, while increasing longevity. Achieving optimal health and wellbeing through the aging process requires a multifaceted approach. A new BCC Research analysis reveals that the global market for antiaging products and services is expected to reach $331.3 billion in 2020, up from $281.6 billion in 2015, reflecting a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3%. The products segment, which accounts for nearly 83% of the overall antiaging market, should demonstrate a five-year CAGR of 3.2% to total $273.8 billion by 2020. Services represent the faster-growing segment and account for the remaining 17% of overall sales. Antiaging services should achieve sales of $57.6 billion in 2020, reflecting a five-year CAGR of 3.7%.

Geriatrics and End of Life Care

The global End of Life Care market size was valued at USD 718 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period. The long term care market is expected to boom owing to the aging baby boomers, increasing disabilities, the dearth of skilled nursing staff, government funding, and increased collaborations of private insurers with the government. Long term care (LTC) can range from a low level of care including cleaning and shopping support to high intensity care for older adults within care homes. The key trend is that the demand for care will continue to increase because of increasing life expectancy and ageing. The number of care homes within residential settings, both in public and private has increased over the last few years. It is expected that the number of care homes will increase further in the future as a result of increasing demand. As a consequence, older adults will have greater choice and control of their care and services. The hospice care segment is the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of 7.6%.

Geriatrics and Neurological Disorders

The key factors contributing to the growth of the global geriatric neurology devices market are increasing incidences of neurological disorders such Dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Ischemic stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain cancer, and other such traumas to the brain. Additionally, as a geriatric population is growing, the global neurology devices market is also witnessing a huge encouragement. As most patients are opting for use of neurology devices over use of drugs due to no side effects and better effectiveness. The global neurology was valued US$5.0B in 2012 and is expected to reach US$13.6B in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 15.4%. It is estimated that 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia with nearly 60% living in low- and middle-income countries. The total number of people with dementia is projected to increase to 82 million in 2030 and 152 million in 2050.

Geriatrics and Elder Abuse

Old people are commonly abused by their relatives. 500000 elderly people are believed to be abused at any one time around the world. 46% of people responsible for abuse are related to the person they are abusing, but only 1% who abuse are the primary carer. A quarter of those who abuse are sons and daughters. 78% of abuse is perpetrated against people who are over the age of 70, with 16% of that abuse affecting people over the age of 90. Those between 80 and 89 are the most vulnerable to abuse. Two-thirds of abuse is committed at home. Older adults are also vulnerable to elder abuse - including physical, verbal, psychological, financial and sexual abuse; abandonment; neglect; and serious losses of dignity and respect. Current evidence suggests that 1 in 10 older people experience elder abuse. Elder abuse can lead not only to physical injuries, but also to serious, sometimes long-lasting psychological consequences, including depression and anxiety.

Geriatric Rheumatology and Arthritis

A rising elderly population and increasing allocations for research and development of new drugs is what is serving to drive growth in the global rheumatology therapeutics market. This has led to the emergence of many new drugs. Their swift approvals by the appropriate authorities have also led to the growth in the market. The global rheumatology therapeutics market will rise at a lackluster CAGR of 2.7% from 2017 to 2025 to become worth US$ 52.96 bn by 2025 from US$41.88 bn in 2016. Nearly 20% of aged people who suffer a hip fracture die within a year. One out of every two women over 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime, with risk of fracture increasing with age. The global rheumatology therapeutics market is projected to be driven by the increasing geriatric population in developed countries. Also according to world arthritis day, more than 120 million people in European Union are affected by some of the forms of arthritis. The growing geriatric population in developed countries is likely to be key driving factor for global rheumatology therapeutics market.

Geriatrics and Mental Health

Globally, the population is ageing rapidly. Between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the world’s population over 60 years will nearly double, from 12% to 22%. Mental health and well-being are as important in older age as at any other time of life. Mental and neurological disorders among older adults account for 6.6% of the total disability (DALYs) for this age group. Approximately 15% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental disorder. Over 20% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental or neurological disorder (excluding headache disorders) and 6.6% of all disability (disability adjusted life years-DALYs) among people over 60 years is attributed to mental and neurological disorders. These disorders in older people account for 17.4% of Years Lived with Disability (YLDs). The most common mental and neurological disorders in this age group are dementia and depression, which affect approximately 5% and 7% of the world’s older population, respectively. Anxiety disorders affect 3.8% of the older population, substance use problems affect almost 1% and around a quarter of deaths from self-harm are among people aged 60 or above. Substance abuse problems among older people are often overlooked or misdiagnosed.

Geriatrics and Nutrition

Health-conscious elderly consumers are turning to products that aim to promote better health, longevity and stave off chronic diseases, as they lead longer, more affluent lives. The clinical nutrition market was valued at USD40.5Bn in 2015, and is expected to reach USD55.9 Bn by 2022, expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2016 to 2022. The number geriatric individuals are on a perpetual rise. Loss of appetite and chronic diseases are common in this age group, thus affecting the ideal nutrition intake and absorption respectively. With the increasing population of baby boomers, spending on clinical nutrition is anticipated to increase. Due to weak digestive system at older age, it is difficult for human body to absorb all the required nutrients from food. Among geriatric population, loss of appetite is considered to be the most common problem. Due to this, the population of baby boomers does not get the sufficient amount of nutrients. In order to get sufficient amount of nutrients, the dependency of the geriatric population towards clinical nutrition support is increasing. During old age, energy requirements are less as the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) starts decreasing from the age of 35. The requirement of energy reduces at the rate of about 5% to 20% between the age of 35 to 70 years. While protein, minerals and vitamins requirements remain unchanged, higher intake of minerals and vitamins especially calcium, iron and B complex vitamins may help. These aid the processes of digestion, absorption and utilization as they do not function at an optimal level. Giving oral nutritional supplements for 90 days after leaving hospital could reduce death rates for older malnourished patients with a heart or lung disease by 50%, according to a study published in Clinical Nutrition.

Geriatrics and General Practice

A growing and ageing population, with complex multiple health conditions, means that personal and population-orientated primary care is central to any country’s health system. The burden of chronic illnesses, which are disproportionately prevalent in older adults, Wellness is self-responsibility and is opening new opportunities for wellness market as due to increase in geriatric population, rise in disease population due to sedentary lifestyle, new research on wellness procedures using alternative medicines, expansion of consumer base and wellness industries, tourism is growing, that will incorporate wellness into travel, shift of consumers towards personal care products are some of the factors that will drive the medical wellness market.

Ageing Technology and Management

Interest in technology for older adults is driven by multiple converging trends: The rapid pace of technological development; the unprecedented growth of the aging population in the United States and worldwide; the increase in the number and survival of persons with disability; the growing and unsustainable costs of caring for the elderly people; and the increasing interest on the part of business, industry, and government agencies in addressing health care needs with technology. These trends have contributed to the strong conviction that technology can play an important role in enhancing quality of life and independence of older individuals with high levels of efficiency, potentially reducing individual and societal costs of caring for the elderly people. The U.S. market for assistive technologies for people over 65 is projected to grow from nearly $6.2 billion in 2015 to almost $8 billion in 2020. As a percentage of the total market, seniors are expected to constitute 36.8% of the total assistive technologies market in 2020.One of the strongest growths is in medical/personal monitoring aids (including home safety products), which follows the trend of retrofitting homes to ensure extended aging-in-place.

Geriatrics and Geriatric Services

According to the research report, the global geriatric care services market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 5.90% from 2013 to 2019 to reach a figure of US$850 bn by the end of 2019. The global geriatric care services market is segmented on the basis of type. Home care is observed to be the most attractive in the geriatric care services market size, with the revenue forecast to exceed USD 480 billion by 2024, and will raise at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2016-2024. The upsurge in the geriatric care services industry is due to the increasing institutional care prices such as the expenses related to the nursing homes and hospital, awareness about prolonged hospital stays, fast recovery caused as of injury and sickness owing to favorable environment.
