According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are 78 million Boomers in the U.S. today, the largest demographic segment of the population.  This group will spend an estimated $2 trillion annually. A sizable portion of Boomers are those new to the Empty Nest lifestyle, a time of great change and new opportunities.

According to a recent report by JTW Boom, found that while a portion of Empty Nesters are sad that their children have left home, the majority cite a better quality of life with the freedommore time to take care of themselves, theopportunity for closer relationships with their spouse, and the time and money to enjoy doing new things they never would have done before, as the benefits of Empty Nesting.

The report continues “Empty Nesters have new needs, desires and activities as they rediscover themselves and their partners – presenting a great opportunity for marketers to show how their products and services into the new life stage.”
