Top Caregiver Franchises To Invest In

Thinking about creating a product for older adults? Well, you have to first research your market before you finally venture into it. There won’t be any need though, because we have already done the job here. However, it depends on your location, but we will be using the United States population as a reference here to depict the statistics. The current report shows that the United States caregiver franchise is worth $5 billion, but you have to understand your market before you even think of investing in it. Caregiver franchises consists of those products and services used by those considered vulnerable, e.g., children, older adults, disabled, etc.

It might interest you to know that over 3.79 million babies were born in the United States in 2018 alone. This is even low, probably because of young adults’ growing culture of delaying married; even married ones delay having babies. But whatever the reason, the “new baby” market is still doing just fine. To prove that this market has a future, it has been shown that 50% of women at age 25-44 said they plan to have babies in the future. This is unlike the very small number who prefer to either stay single throughout their lives or have decided not to have babies even after marriage. So, investing in the caregiver franchise is certainly another type of future investment.

Statistics show that in 2019, the population of older people at age 65 grew by 16.5% and is expected to grow by 22% by 2050. This increase has been very significant since the 1950s when the elderly population was just 8%. With this brief analysis, you will understand that the caregiver franchise is a huge market that even has the propensity to survive till 2050. But unfortunately, it is not just the American population with such a reasonable number of older people. According to Statista, by 2020, the global workforce’s age is expected to be 39 years; thus, over 3 million people are expected to be 100 years old by 2050. And surprising enough, the market for older people’s product is worth over $5 billion.

Enough of the analysis now; let’s go over to giving you some caregiver franchise tips you must consider if you are planning on investing in one.
