TrendSights Analysis: Aging Populations – How brands can accommodate the growing proportion of older consumers

Summary

World’s population is aging at unprecedented rates. In nearly every country in the world, but especially in developed countries, the proportion of older people is not only rising but accelerating. This aging population has a growing impact on society but will also have a clear impact on FMCGs. FMCG brands will have to adapt to cater to this group – addressing the specific the health concerns of older consumers while building consumer trust, all without making older consumers feel bad about their age.

FMCG firms must recognize the importance of this growing demographic which is important both for its size and its disposable income. Older people will come to represent an increasingly large proportion of the population as lifespans extend and as younger age groups shrink due to declining fertility rates. Product offerings should shift to meet the needs of this group, whether that be in form of healthier products, products designed to create nostalgia, or products that help older generations indulge.

Broadly speaking, declining fertility rates and lengthening lifespans are the two key drivers of the growing proportion of older people. More specifically, following post-war population booms, as nations have developed their fertility rates have dropped.

The proportion of older people is rising in nearly every country in the world but they represent a diverse group with variations in health, wealth, and lifestyle. Broadly speaking, however, they tend to live simpler lives and seek reliability and trustworthiness in the products they buy.

Older consumers tend to seek products that are trustworthy, reliable, risk-free as well as those that provide health and wellness benefits. FMCG brands should simplify their products and leverage natural ingredients in order to improve the shopping process for older consumers and convince them of the trustworthy and healthy values the products. This can be done across categories – reducing chemicals and incorporating natural ingredients in household care products, for example.
