X-Plore Silver Economy

The Silver Economy is the set of products and services dedicated to the mature population. In 2050 in the world, the over-65s will be 16% of the population, while in Europe and North America the ratio will be 25%. In Italy in the same period it will be a range between 32% and 37%. These figures imply a special focus on new technologies and innovation that serve to improve the quality of life and at the same time to solve the problems caused by longer working lives, greater vulnerability and the maintenance of motivation and involvement. By 2025, 50% of workers will need reskilling, so continuing education even of mature individuals requires the use of new technologies, including immersive ones to facilitate learning. Robotics is opening a new frontier, providing companionship and assistance to people. Innovative devices and services designed specifically for older people support active ageing that improves quality of life and reduces care costs.
