As Asia's population ages at an unprecedented rate, the demand for long-term care services is experiencing a significant surge across the region. Nations like China, Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore are at the forefront of innovation in this sector, adapting to the evolving needs of their aging populations.


The global long-term care market is on track for substantial growth, with projections indicating a staggering worth of US$1,607.8 billion by 2030, driven by a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2023 to 2030. In China, the economic costs associated with long-term care are anticipated to skyrocket by 2050. Similarly, Japan's expenditure for the long-term care insurance (LTCI) system reached approximately 12.2 trillion Japanese yen (equivalent to US$112.2 billion) in fiscal year 2020. Despite concerns over budget constraints, Taiwan's long-term care fund is forecasted to surpass NT$80 billion (approximately US$2.8 billion) in 2024. Notably, the long-term care market in Taiwan also reached a valuation of US$20.6 billion in 2022.

With a focus on connecting caregivers and the elderly to community resources, this segment features a diverse range of healthcare equipment and services tailored for home environments. Exhibits include nutrition supplements, smart homecare solutions, and in-home medical services, aimed at creating senior-friendly living environments and addressing financial and insurance aspects of home-based care.
