The study includes information regarding significant products, players, issues, trends, and other information affecting the aging industry: both cosmetic and disease treatment markets.
The study is designed:
- To define and measure the global antiaging market, specifically for the baby boomer (or roughly over age 50) population.
- To identify market opportunities in this antiaging market, categorized into health maintenance, disease treatment, beauty, and personal appearance.
- To measure antiaging markets that could be better understood by stakeholders in terms of their own respective sales offerings.
- To strategically analyze individual antiaging markets, products and services, technology, and regions in context of aging demographics.
- To identify market trends, gaps, and opportunities.
- To strategically analyze the market structure and competitive landscape, profiling in detail all the top companies in the micro market of antiaging.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
The antiaging market is categorized distinctively into boomers (the population born between 1946 and 1965) and the youth antiaging market. These markets differ in terms of products and service offerings, market structure, and positioning. This report has been focused on the boomer antiaging market, which is a more mature market and controls 75% of the total antiaging market. The worldwide population of more than 500 million aging consumers is growing at 3.3%, compared to the general population, which is growing at 1.1%, making the over age 65 population more attractive for antiaging companies. The over age 65 group is increasing in its numbers each decade, for example in 2000 the over age 65 population accounted for just about 6% of the total population, by 2010 it was 7%, in 2020 we can expect it will increase to 10% and by 2030 it will reach 12%. This is something that many companies will find it difficult to overlook.
Antiaging companies need to adapt different strategies dependent on race, gender, income level, family status, young and old boomers, insurance status, and distribution channels.
The aging market has been the largest opportunity today in the world, mainly for its higher disposable income. Therefore, all companies in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and health care, biotech, medspa, and fitness services are strategizing to grab a piece of the double-digit growing antiaging market. In the current economic turmoil, the antiaging market can help the economy to grow and benefit the respective stakeholders.
In this report, full market estimates of the antiaging market for several segments are provided. The report will focus on three general areas of the market, and provide further analysis of each broad segment. These include:
- Antiaging cosmetic products.
- Disease treatment products.
- Cosmetic antiaging services.
