Life-changing Health Frontiers

How can you anticipate the health needs of a population of over 100 million people?

The Longevity Economy, the economic activity devoted to the needs of Americans 50+, presents a fast-growing opportunity for health technology investors and entrepreneurs. These 104 million people account for $3.1 trillion in annual consumer spending and $1.6 trillion in healthcare spending. As this population grows to a projected 132 million by 2030, health technology innovators have an opportunity to grow their businesses as part of the Longevity Economy, improve the quality of people’s lives as they age, and create successful technologies.

A recent study by Parks Associates identified nine areas of digital health innovation that collectively represent a growth opportunity of $30 billion in revenue and adoption by over 100 million people over the next five years. We call these market areas “The Health Frontiers” and they currently represent the health demands of 50+ and provide entry points to the Longevity Economy.
