THE 4 ENVIRONMENT FACTORS
Demographics refer to the studies of population based on age, sex and race. In this current era, the major problem faced is the aging population. Studies has shown that “one out of every nine person is 60 years old or over; and the numbers are growing rapidly. By 2050, one in five persons will be over the age of 60.” (PAWLICZKO, 2001-2010) As the work force population is getting older, so more people turn to healthy lifestyle products. Asians in particular being workaholics have often abandoned pursuing a balanced lifestyle. OSIM enable them to enjoy this kind of lifestyle right at their home.
