Japan Gerontech

An opportunity for Swiss Companies

The world’s leading economies are confronted to the reality of the aging of their populations. Japan stands at the forefront of this socio-economical challenge. In 2015, 26,7% of the Japanese population was aged 65 and over. Forecasts show that one person out of three will be over 65 by 2030, and one out of five over 75 (super-aging segment), with about 250,000 seniors 100 and over at that time.

This factor is aggravated by high life expectancy and a low birthrate that have led the country into a steep demographic decline since the 1990s (source: Japanese National Institute ofPopulation and Social Security Research).
