2016 Annual Report – The Global Economics of Disability
In our flagship public research report, we explore the size and scope of the Disability Market and how it impacts economic behavior in the developed world around the globe.

A market the size of China, the Disability Market influences over $8 trillion in annual disposable income. As this giant market emerges, our team explores opportunities for public companies and governments to add economic value by delighting customers and sourcing the best talent.

The intent of this paper is to inform those grappling with how to position their products and services in the Disability Market. We do this by establishing a set of common statistical, economics-rooted measures of the market’s size and features, and by describing the top issues facing companies wishing to engage with the Disability Market.
