Packaging for the Silver Age Market: A Japanese Perspective

According to estimates by the United Nations, one out of every nine persons is aged 60 years or over in Asia. By 2050, the proportion of the world population falling into this age group is projected to increase to one in five. In Singapore alone, it is estimated that the number of elderly citizens will triple to about 900,000 by 2030, making up a sizeable proportion of the entire population. Japan too, is facing the issue of a rapidly ageing population, which has also created opportunities for many companies looking to take advantage of this lucrative market. Tapping onto the silver dollar, the packaging industry has innovated to address the challenge of catering to the needs of an aging population. This workshop will present packaging innovations from Japan Packaging Star Awards with focus on products designed to address the needs of the silver market. The idea of Universal Design and packaging for the elderly will also be explored to gain insight into packaging technologies and applications for this market segment.
