U.S. Active Adult (55+) Community Market Worth $732.1 Billion By 2027

The U.S. active adult (55+) Community market size is estimated to reach USD 732.1 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.3%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing interest of older adults below 65 years of age towards maintenance-free lifestyle, structured activities, socialization, and a sense of community are the major factors driving the market. In addition, retirement not being in the eligibility criteria, and the variety of optional care and support services available at these facilities are the factors boosting the market growth.

An increasing population aged between 55 to 64 years are categorized as active adults seeking a social and friendly environment. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, baby boomers aged between 55 and 73 have brought both challenges and opportunities to the economy, infrastructure, and institutions. Active adult communities are quite similar to any other residential community, apart from their age restrictions, most of them are designed for a low maintenance lifestyle. These communities are mostly built near shopping malls, parks, restaurants, and other places for socializing, as the residents want to live a healthy lifestyle during their final years of retirement. The communities do not provide on-site dining facilities or healthcare services to the residents. The Homeowners Association (HOA) dues of these communities pay for assured communal amenities.
