Arcadia Worldwide:

Tomorrow’s markets

Secure growth for the decades ahead

Invest today in the markets of tomorrow.

In future, services and products for the elderly and the over-50s are destined to become an integral part of every company’s planning agenda. In view of double-digit growth rates and the demographic development, this target group is an attractive market segment.

Founded in 2013, the company Arcadia Worldwide Ltd. offers a wide spectrum of services for older people who are unable to work or who have a mobility impairment and, therefore, require daytime care, assistance, supervised activities and medical services, but who do not require permanent care in an institution for the elderly.

A society in change

D

Demographic change is particularly evident in the rising number of very old people. In 2013 some 4.4 million citizens living in Germany were 80 years old or over. By the year 2050 this number (taking an increased number of immigrants into account) is predicted to rise to 9.9 million (2060: 9.0 million). In 2013 persons aged 80 and over accounted for approximately 5 percent of the total population; by 2050 this share is forecast to rise to 13 percent. In 2060 one in eight people in Germany will be 80 years old or over (12.3 percent) and almost one third of the population will be over 65 years old (31.7 percent).

The proportion of working-age adults is set to shrink dramatically. The number of people aged between 20 and 65 years is forecast to drop markedly after 2020 and, depending on net immigration, is predicted to drop from 49.2 million in 2013 to between 37.9 million and 34.3 million in 2060. In 2060, assuming that demographic development continues at its current pace and assuming lower immigration rates, Germany will have 65 elderly people for every 100 working-age adults. In the case of an annual long-term immigration surplus of 200,000, the so-called old-age dependency ratio will be only slightly lower, namely 61.

I offer my congratulations to anyone out there who knows how to successfully address the issue of demographic change.
