Energy imbalance between the calories consumed and expended is the cause for obesity. There is a change in the dietary and physical activity patterns due to increasing sedentary nature of work, changing modes of transportation, and increasing urbanization. This leads to increase in the body mass index (BMI) which is a main reason for the noncommunicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders, and cancer.
To prevent and treat obesity, which is a major cause for diabetes, CVD, and hypertension, among other diseases and to encourage healthy living, several companies are involved in providing weight loss and weight management products and services.
Major factors driving the growth of the market are growing obese population and childhood obesity, increasing number of bariatric surgeries, increasing memberships in health clubs, technological advancements, rising acceptance of online weight loss and weight management programs, sedentary lifestyle, and increasing government initiatives for creating awareness among obese populations. On the other hand, factors such as availability of low-cost substitutes to weight loss products, availability of free online diet videos and books, and misleading marketing strategies adopted by some players may hamper the market growth.
