About The 50 Plus Market:
There are more older adults alive right now than in all of human history combined. According to the U.S. Census Bureau approximately forty million people are currently over the age of fifty in the U.S. By 2030, the over-65 demographic will represent more than a quarter of the population. The size and buying power of the Baby Boomer and Senior demographics are staggering, but many companies mistakenly vastly underestimate the viability of today's mature adults.
Consider these eye opening statistics:
- 77% of the current wealth in the United States is being controlled by older adults
- The 55+ age group controls more than three-fourths of America's wealth
- Boomers and seniors have a net worth that is 3x that of the younger generations
- Baby Boomers account for nearly $230 billion, or 55% of consumer packaged goods sales each year
- 96% of Baby Boomers participate in word-of-mouth or viral marketing by passing product or service information on to friends and family members

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
