Implications - The aged consumer demographic is growing, and corporations are looking to cater to these individuals by releasing products that compensate for these peoples' deteriorating physical capabilities. As this target market also has more disposable income in comparison to more youthful demographics, corporations may want to consider releasing products geared toward the elderly.
