Market Overview:
India’s aging population is predicted to reach around 300 million by 2050 as life expectancy increases, leading to rising demand for assisted living facilities, home healthcare, adult day care centers and nursing homes. These services provide holistic care and assistance with daily activities to senior citizens who require some form of support.

Market Dynamics:

The key drivers for the growth of the India geriatric care services market include increasing share of the elderly population combined with changing family structures and rising women workforce participation which is rendering family support systems inadequate. As per WHO estimates, India will have around 300 million geriatrics by 2050 compared to just 103 million in 2011 leading to significant business opportunities for care services providers in the country. Nursing homes and other institution-based models help address the challenges of families struggling to care for their elderly at home.

Market key trends:

The India geriatric care services market has been witnessing noticeable growth trends such as rising demand for assisted living facilities and home-based care services. With changing demographic patterns and increasing life expectancy, the elderly population in India is growing rapidly making it one of the youngest nations. As traditional joint families are disintegrating and children are migrating to other cities for jobs, there is a growing need for alternative living arrangements that can provide quality care to senior citizens. Furthermore, factors such as lack of quality elderly care infrastructure and higher costs of nursing homes are driving demand for assisted living facilities that combine independent living with professional caregiving.
