Assistive products for elderly people have faced new environment since the July of 2008 in which the long term care insurance was introduced to support the activities of elders. Currently 17 categories of 699 products are in long term care insurance service. Although assistive products occupy only 2.3% of total expenditure of the insurance, its importance is expected to grow as the speed of population aging increases. Therefore, even if its current market size is relative small, we believe that we need to prepare strategies for the development of the assistive products industry.
In this report, we analysed the institutional background and current operation of the assistive products in the long term care and we compared it with other countries, such as Japan, German, U.S.A.. We then surveyed the industry to know the current industry situation, to estimate the market size and to know their opinion concerning industry policies. Finally, we proposed some suggestions for the development of the industry.
