Human Lifespan
on the Rise

The average global life expectancy has witnessed a remarkable increase over the past century, from around 30 years in the early 1900s to over 70 years today. From 2000 to 2019 alone, the average life expectancy demonstrated a notable rise of more than 6 years, ascending from 66.8 years to 73.4 years. Advances in healthcare, nutrition, and living conditions contribute to this upward trajectory, and GCLS stands at the forefront of understanding the science behind this longevity revolution.

Longevity &
Quality of Life

During this period of drastic average life expectancy increase between 2000 to 2019 alone, healthy life expectancy (HALE) experienced an 8% increase, moving from 58.3 in 2000 to 63.7 in 2019. Notably, this rise in HALE by 5.4 years primarily resulted from a decline in mortality rates rather than a reduction in years lived with disability. In essence, while life expectancy increased by 6.6 years, the augmentation in HALE did not quite keep pace with this trajectory.

The Quest For Longevity Breakthroughs

The global interest in extending human life and enhancing health during the aging process has gained widespread attention. Venture capital funds worldwide acknowledge the significant potential of inventive solutions aimed at longevity, contributing to a transformative impact on healthcare. Over the past five years, investors have shown an increased interest in the longevity space, with investment peaking in 2021 at a record-breaking $7.65 billion. 2022 financing came close to that high at $6.94 billion. Bank of America analysts project the longevity sector to be worth at least $600 billion by 2025.
