Cultural and social pressures shape men as tough, which ultimately affects their health outcomes. A strong sense of independence, control & resilience often prevents men from seeking timely help related to health. Not surprisingly male life expectancy shows unfavorable gaps when compared to the female gender. Consumer health offers therapies and options that may improve life expectancy. Market opportunities exist in the promotion of men’s health. The challenge is to find successful approaches.


On the other hand, despite their number, spending power and contribution to the labour force, many wonder why midlife women are ignored. In mature markets midlifers are the big spending Boomers. In emerging markets they are a more diverse generation, but getting richer. As the world’s population ages, will this invisibility continue? Or is it time for midlife women to embrace their power and change the world?


With an eye on masculinity and health indicators, answers to questions like what does consumer health offer to men, what is the future of men’s health industry and more, the report “Masculinity Vs Health: Challenges and Opportunities” ( provides up-to-the minute analysis of the latest trends in the industry along with new insights into the size and shape of the market. Few pointers:

Demographic findings in 2012 reveal that 58% of the total male population are aged between 20 and 64 years, which is considered the age period most characterized by health risk and disease prevention.

When men become sick or disabled, costs to employers increase due to absenteeism and “presenteeism” (attending work while ill), while household income decreases for the family.

The costs associated with treating elderly men are higher than women, as men tend to show signs of disease at an earlier age. Men tend to be stubborn about asking for help. When they finally do, it may be too late to reverse, treat or cure a condition.
