Elder Care Startups and Their Domain Choices

Overview

The worldwide population of people aged 65 and over is expanding faster than any other age group, according to the United Nations. By 2030, one out of every six persons on the planet will be 60 years or older. The population aged 60 and beyond is projected to increase more than double from 1 billion in 2020 to 2.1 billion people in 2050.

Older people faced the most threats and challenges during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides COVID-19, the elderly have had to cope with many other issues, such as difficulties getting medical treatment for chronic conditions during lockdowns and isolation. Another major problem is the severe shortage of carers, particularly for the elderly who want to remain in their homes rather than transfer into nursing facilities. 

According to a recent Crunchbase research, venture capital companies have invested more than $2.5 billion into elder care and home health companies over the last five years. By the end of 2029, the Elder Care Services Market is expected to be worth over USD 2.1 billion, with a CAGR of over 6.3%t from 2020 to 2029.


There has been a rise in investor interest because the demographic shift is undeniable. However, I think what has really driven the shift in the past five to seven years has been investors’ interest in health care as a place to innovate.

The research has further shown that three-fourths of seniors want to stay in their homes as long as possible, increasing demand for at-home and remotely provided health care.


There are so many tailwinds coming out of this pandemic. One is that we as a country have discovered that a lot of things can be done at home, including health care.
