Increase in global geriatric population and Surge in Programs by Governments and NGOs to support Elderly Patients: Key Drivers

  • Rise in geriatric population has led to an increase in the incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), people over the age of 65 form the fastest-growing population segment globally. The proportion of the world's population over 60 years is expected to double from about 11% to 22% between 2000 and 2050.
  • Stroke is a leading cause of death in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), stroke claims one fatality every 40 seconds in the U.S. and about 795,000 people become victims of stroke (85% acute ischemic) each year. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes, and 185,000 are recurrent strokes.
  • The global geriatric medicines market is expanding at a significant growth rate due to increasing government support toward old people for their health, safety, and nursing care. For instance, The Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) was established in 2002 and is insured by John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company, sponsored by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and administered by Long Term Care Partners, LLC (LTCP). The program is available to uniformed service members, federal civilians, and certain qualified family members. Currently, the program covers over 267,000 enrollees. The program provides home nursing services, hospice facility services, durable medical equipment (such as hospital-style beds, walkers, and wheelchairs), homecare planning visits, an emergency medical response system, and home modifications (such as installing wheelchair ramps).
