UBIFRANCE – the French Trade Commission is now working closely with innovative French companies specialized in the aging service industry. Service industries are changing worldwide, especially in the United-States, and it has now become a challenge for companies to adapt their products to this new trend. Increasing life expectancies are raising new major business opportunities , especially in the aging service industry . In 2009, 13% of the population was 65 or more and it is expected to increase by 16,1% between 2010 and 2015. Furthermore, the industry revenue is projected to rise at an average annual rate of 2.3% to $16.8 billion over the next five years. Seniors’ lifestyle is constantly evolving and they are facing new issues that haven’t been answered yet. As it becomes more and more difficult for seniors and more particularly for elderly people to communicate and maintain links with their families, there is a real need for new services and products which will secure and reassure the family . Advances in technology and new equipment are starting to emerge in this industry allowing more health care procedures to be carried out in the home but the elderly facilities and home-care services companies are not fully equipped yet. In France, both the government and the companies have come to realize the increasing needs of the population and measures have been taken to answer them. Indeed despite the economic crisis, service industries have remained in a strong position in France: the number of employees in the industry has increased by 15% over the last two years and over 25 000 associations have been created. French companies have proven to be very dynamic in this sector and have been developing cutting-edge services and innovative products for elderly care and wellness, such as new teleassistance solutions, interactive communication tools or geolocalization systems . And now for the first time ever, UBIFRANCE is bringing a delegation of French companies to the U.S . to enable professionals from both sides of the Atlantic to meet and share their expertise. For 3 days, on the occasion of the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & IAHSA Global Ageing Conference held in Wahington DC, from Oct. 16 to 19, 2011, UBIFRANCE and the French delegation will meet American elderly care providers, discuss their needs and offer them innovative services solutions made in France. UBIFRANCE will also organize a conference on the senior living services market, more information will be provided soon. Contact us for more information.
