Die für Deutschland prognostizierte Bevölkerungsalterung wird sich zukünftig auf den privaten Konsum von Gütern und Dienstleistungen auswirken. Altersspezifisch unterschiedliche Konsummuster lassen dabei sowohl Veränderungen im Niveau als auch in der Struktur des Konsums der privaten Haushalte erwarten. Dies trifft auch auf die privaten Verkehrsausgaben zu, die nach den Ausgaben für Miete und Wohnen die zweitgrößte Ausgabenkategorie der privaten Einkommensverwendung darstellen.
Abstract (Translated): 
The level as well as the structure of private consumption is influenced by the age structure of the population. This is shown for Germany by an age-specific analysis of consumption patterns on the basis of household data of the German consumer income and budget survey. According to the gained data and with respect to the changing shares of age cohorts induced by demographic effects, the demand for consumption goods and services in the field of transport will lose significance. This is especially true for private transport expenditures such as the purchase of cars as well as the demand for goods and services related to the use of cars. In contrast, the expenditures for (public) transport services are projected to be unchanged over the lifecycle of a private household.
