China Market Insight series









Ageing Well

The Asia Pacific's ageing market is one of the biggest emerging sectors in the world, projected to be worth US$3.3 trillion by 2020. Supply for this massive demand currently falls short.

If SA can tap into unmet demand for high value products and services, jobs growth could potentially run into the tens of thousands.

Opportunities exists for us to provide assistive technologies, smart housing design, innovative aged care models and more.

Business, industry, government and universities are all committing resources to SA becoming a globally recognised leader in health and ageing research, products and services.

We have the opportunity to position ourselves as the economic partner of choice in R&D to support active and independent living here and around the world.

ACBC is working with the City of Charles Sturt, the Aged Care Industry Association (ACIA) and the Australia China Aged Care Consortium (ACACC) to create and implement a two-year China and Asia market development plan for the sector.

The project will:
  • Clearly identify what products and services buyers in China want to import and what kind of investments high-net-worth individuals such as business migrants are looking to make.
  • Position South Australia’s ageing well sector properly to meet this demand.
  • Raise the capabilities of South Australian ageing well businesses, helping them to identify opportunities and customise their offerings.

SACHINA Connect boosted by CCPIT support

The SAChina Connect website is a unique trade and investment gateway, directly connecting Chinese investors to SA business opportunities in a dynamic, real time environment.

What is really taking this significant resource to the next level is the involvement of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT). The CCPIT is the key Chinese government organisation linking Chinese interests to international trade. It has committed to actively promoting SAChina Connect and the business opportunities within to their Chinese members.
