  31. 31. The Silver Economy Frank McGlone
  32. 32. The Silver Economy • The Silver Economy is generally viewed as the market for goods and services for people aged 55 and over. • Disposable income for over 60s in Europe ranges from 90% to 120% of the average income for under 60s. • The Silver Economy breaks down into: • Active • Fragile • Dependant
  33. 33. Future Trends • By 2060 over a third of the world population will be over 65 • The ratio of people working to those who are inactive in UK is 4:1. By 2060 this will be 2:1, by 2035 it will be 3:1 • The number of people aged 65 + in employment in the UK has risen to 967,000 from 885,000 in the last year. • Annual spending for older households up from £109 billion to £121 billion • Nearly 4.9 million people aged 65 and over in England take part in volunteering or civic engagement - more than half of that age group. • Older people contribute up to £50 billion in unpaid family care for grandchildren, spouses and older family members.
  34. 34. Future Trends • The number of people aged 65 years and over in UK is projected to increase by 65 per cent in the next 25 years to more than 16.4 million in 2033, as more of us live for longer • The number of over 85s in the UK is set to double in the next 20 years and nearly treble in the next 30. • Social care models need to be adjusted if we are to be able to afford care. • The population is becoming more active and healthier – improved medical interventions, more awareness of health and wellbeing, healthier food and increasing levels of exercise. • Over 60s market in UK is worth over £200 billion. In Northern Ireland it is worth £5bn
  35. 35. Ageing in good health allows people to: • Travel more • Participate in sports/leisure activities • Work for longer • Learn new things • Live independently • Purchase more things • Invest in their wellbeing
  36. 36. Remember !!! “Selling to the Silver Market means selling products to older consumers without directly presenting them as products for seniors.”
  37. 37. Traditional View V’s Reality • Big, beige and boring • Purchases are similar to those of younger people • Well designed, good quality, well presented and VFM
  38. 38. How we should think • Focus on benefits of having an older workforce – experience, reliability, fewer interruptions, knowledge. • Develop more flexible work patterns for all ages. See reducing work hours as we get older as a new phase. • Be prepared to invest in developing the skills of older people. Allow them to help develop other skills and abilities. • Don’t assume that older people are not active on social media or are not capable of using technology.
  39. 39. How we should think • Consider the Silver Economy when developing strategies for business growth. • The under 50s market is declining therefore there will be increased competition to sell to those markets. • Become familiar with the needs of the Silver Economy – include this market in your research and focus groups
  40. 40. Some Examples • Beauticians targeting over 65s with treatments at a discount during quiet days. • Cycling holidays off season focusing on the Tour de France routes. • Wearable technology to monitor health and wellbeing. • Technology companies producing equipment with larger keyboard and screens. • IT training companies targeting over 60s with training courses aimed common tasks – digital photography, booking holidays, shopping on line etc.
  41. 41. Some Examples • Gardening companies designing low maintenance gardens. • CCTV providers developing packages for older people living alone. • Architects designing dementia friendly accommodation. • One house builder in the US has had to move away from building two bedroom apartments for older couples to building homes for single people due to the large number of older people living alone. He has also had to provide storage space for motor bikes, bicycles and boats
  42. 42. Exercise • Complete the following table for your business focusing on the Silver Economy: STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES OPPORTUNITIES THREATS
