According to Aging in Place Technology Watch , “The marketplace for technology to assist aging adults in the Longevity Economy is expected to grow sharply from $2 billion today to more than $30 billion in the next few years. 

 

Aging in Place Technology Watch reports that it is likely to be based on customization of software and hardware in general use -- combined with more widely available and persuasive training on how to use it. 

The 100-million-strong 50+ market is increasingly aware of technology alternatives according to Laurie M. Orlov, who founded the market research firm in 2009. “ As this market opportunity has become interesting to investors and inventors, innovators recognize that customization ... re-purposing, and training on broadly available technologies may be as useful as creating a new device from scratch. Consumers will benefit from the growth of mobile interfaces and websites, wearable devices, plus new smart phone and tablet apps. “
