The AAL domain broadly represents solutions (i.e. bundled products and services) that have an information and communication technology (ICT) component and are of direct value for older people, their families and carers to enhance their health, wellbeing and independence. Products and services may also benefit older people indirectly by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of systems responsible for their wellbeing, health and care. The scope of this report is therefore largely limited to market developments that exclusively or predominantly focussed on ageing and the older people. The report also introduces the new and emerging business models that will shape the AAL market in the near future and provides an overview of the technologies that enabled the development of AAL solutions. While the primary goal of the report is to monitor the European market, relevant information on global markets is also included to provide context and indicate the potential for growth.
This report serves as a guide to investors, start-ups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), mature companies, and policy makers that are interested in becoming more familiar with the market to support the independent living of older people:
