Indian senior living market potential to touch USD 12 billion by 2030

Market size can grow significantly from the current levels of USD 2-3 billion to USD 12 billion by 2030. Demographic shifts in India to create favourable demand dynamics for senior housing. Low penetration of organized private players creates significant demand & supply gap.

The median age of the country is likely to gradually increase from about 29 to 38 by 2050. Similarly, the proportion of aged people (above 60 years) is likely to increase from about 11% in 2024 to 21% in 2050. At the global level, over the next three decades (by 2050), of the 2.1 billion people above 60 years, India would account for a 17% share indicating a significant demand growth for senior care including housing in the country.

“Like most emerging market economies, the demographic pattern of India is undergoing a steady yet definite shift. The population pyramid of the country will slowly but surely transform from the current expansionary stage to a more stable state in the next few decades. The current nascent senior living market presents a lucrative opportunity for private organised developers to capitalise on the untapped market. With rising interest from institutional players and leading real estate developers, senior housing in the country is set to be almost 5x times by 2030, compared to current levels” said Badal Yagnik, Chief Executive Officer, Colliers India.
