Ageing Population Drives 14 Percent Growth in Senior Care Facilities by 2021


Global market research company Euromonitor International released today new institutional channels industry data that provides comprehensive insight on the private and public business-to-business marketplace.

According to the new research, senior care facilities are projected to experience rapid growth in both developed and emerging economies over the forecast period (2016-2021) with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1 percent and 3.4 percent, respectively.
