IGNITING INDUSTRY FOR INDIA’S AGEING SECTOR

India’s demographic profile is young with more than half the population under the age of 35 years. However, with better availability of healthcare, the population of persons over the age of 65 years is also rapidly expanding. This population is estimated to triple between 2011 and 2050 as longevity will increase from 67.5 years to close to 76 years in this period.
With almost 130 million people currently in this age-group, there is a need for concerted capacity augmentation and policy support for an industry catering to their needs and thereby meeting the requirements of the older generation. This will require several key sectors of industry to come together to provide comprehensive goods and services aimed at a different population such as healthcare, assisted living, manufacturers of specific products, provision of public goods for less-abled, travel and tourism, and so on.
In this emerging field, ASLI and CII strongly recognizes the importance of nurturing new concepts and products for senior citizens through a collaborative approach between private, public and semi-public institutions which are deeply engaged in the sector.
To highlight the different dimensions of caring for our older generation and discuss how industry can partner in the endeavor, ASLI (Association of Senior Living India) in association with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing the 1st Annual Senior Care Conclave: Igniting Industry for India’s Ageing Sector on 1 November 2018 at Silver Oak, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
