Science has made goods and services possible that provide a longer life than ever before seen. This demographic megatrend presents huge market opportunities, and the markets for pharmaceutical products, customized foods, digital wellness and gerontology centres will multiply. While some countries are taking advantage of every opportunity presented by the longevity market, the increase in the healthcare expenses for older people will create a heavy burden on the economy of other states. How can we turn the increase in life expectancy into an economic driver? How will aging populations transform the economy? How should regulators respond?
