Silver Economy / Ageing

Alsace is an excellent incubation platform to access the silver economy in the European market, with acceleration and development for innovation and digital solutions.

European and French market opportunities

The European market for the silver economy is estimated at € 90 billion.
In 2035, a third of all French people will be over 60 years old, meaning there will be more than 20 million senior citizens. (Infographie ?) This demographic revolution paves the way for new markets dedicated to the seniors: products, technologies and services.
