U.S. assisted living facility (ALF) market size, by gender, 2016 - 2027, (USD Billion)

The rise in the geriatric population is expected to be a major factor driving the market for assisted living facilities over the forecast period. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), globally, around 8.5% of the population is aged 65 and above. According to data published by Aging.com, two million housing facilities will be needed for senior residents for adequate living space by 2040.

The concept of continual care retirement communities is gaining traction among seniors with high disposable income. These retirement communities are known to cater to people aged 50 years and above. The idea behind these communities is to prevent seniors from relocating when additional care is needed. As a result, the less than 65 years segment is likely to receive a moderate boost over the forecast period.

Technological developments for assisted living facilities are expected to propel market growth in the country. The development of sophisticated and easy-to-use devices and services, such as Internet-enabled home monitors, telemedicine, and apps for mobile health, is likely to boost the market for the assisted living facility over the forecast period. For instance, an electronic medication adherence system enables tracking a patient’s medication schedule and whether they are following it. Caregivers can program these devices or software to alert the individual to take their medicines. Hence, the development of sophisticated devices and equipment for assisted living facilities is likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
