A BIG EMERGING MARKET IS LOOMING – ARE YOU READY FOR IT?

Are you growing your business in the emerging market created by an ageing society?

One in 12 people today are over 75 years old. It is estimated that this will rise to around one in 7 people by 2040. And this is just in the UK. While this presents a challenge for society, it also offers a major opportunity for businesses to provide products and services for people with changing needs and wellbeing.

The Government announced £98m in the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund for projects to develop solutions that will help people as they age, or people who care for them. It is expected we will hear more about funding and partnership opportunities relating to this from the middle of this year.

Graham Armitage, Director of Business Innovation from the National Institute for Ageing in Newcastle, will be sharing their insight into the market needs of this demographic to help you understand the opportunities for new products and services.
