The weight loss & obesity management market is divided into three major segments, namely diets (foods, beverages, & supplements), services, and fitness and surgical equipment; the market is forecast till 2017. Global rise in obesity and chronic diseases are stimulating the growth of the market.

The global market was worth $265 billion in the year 2012. The global increase in obesity, increasing number of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cardiac problems, increasing personal disposable income, government initiatives to increase awareness about health and fitness, and technological advancements are the key factors driving the global weight loss/obesity management market. Nonetheless, a few critical factors like availability of low-cost alternatives, adoption of deceptive marketing strategies, and high cost of customized services are hindering growth of the market.

Low calorie beverages (carbonated and non-carbonated), and slimmer waters/natural mineral salt drinks showcase vast opportunities for key players in this market. Herbal/green market is also growing at a very fast pace in Asian countries, especially China. With the introduction of technologically advanced and highly sophisticated fitness equipment, the use of cardiovascular and strength training equipment is on a rise. The total number of health clubs in India increased from 765 in 2008 to 1,175 in 2011, at a CAGR of 15%.

Surgical procedures have evolved over the years. LAP BAND surgery is a recent, less traumatic, adjustable, and reversible obesity surgery available today. Other surgeries for obesity management include liposuction, gastric bypass (stomach stapling), laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, and ultrasonic therapy. Evaluation of non-invasive bariatric surgeries, such as intragastric balloon system, StomaphyX, cold laser shaping, and cryolipolysis have further made the weight loss procedures safe and effective.

The geographies covered in this study are North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World (RoW). These four regions are further segmented by major countries, and geographic split for all the sub-segments is presented at a regional level. North America is the largest market, followed by Europe and Asia. North America and Europe are expected to grow at a slower pace, primarily due to the economic slowdown and market maturity. The Asian market, especially India and China, is expected to witness a boost in demand for weight loss products, and is poised to register maximum growth over the next five years, owing to the rising obesity rates and related health problems such as diabetes and heart diseases.

The weight management market is segmented into diets, fitness and surgical equipment, and services. The weight loss diets market is further classified into three main categories by type of composition - foods, beverages, and supplements. Weight loss foods are further classified on the basis of product type as meal replacements, low-calorie ready meals, sugar-free confectionaries, low-calorie desserts, and organic foods. The weight loss beverages market has also been classified into four classes, which includes, low-calorie beverages, herbal/green tea, slimming water/natural mineral salt drinks, and other low-calorie beverages. The weight loss supplements market has been segmented on the basis of product type as protein, fiber, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and green tea extract

The weight loss services market is segmented into three classes, namely, fitness centers, slimming centers, and diet, nutrition, and psychological consulting services, on the basis of type of services provided.

The weight loss fitness and surgical equipment market is segmented as fitness equipment and surgical equipment. The fitness equipment market is further classified into four categories on the basis of application, namely, cardiovascular training equipment, strength training equipment, body composition analyzers, and fitness monitoring equipment, whereas, the cardiovascular training equipment market is segmented into treadmills, elliptical trainers, stationary cycles, rowing machines, stair steppers, and others (exercise benches, gliders, gym balls, dumbbells, and adjustable exercise equipment).

The weight loss surgical equipment market has been classified into two broad categories, namely, minimally invasive surgical equipment, and non-invasive surgical equipment. Minimally invasive surgical equipment is further classified into bariatric surgical devices and liposuction devices, while bariatric surgical devices are further classified into four major categories - gastric bypass (stomach stapling), laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, and biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch, on the basis of technique used. Liposuction devices have been classified into five categories on the basis of technique used - external ultrasound assisted, power assisted, water assisted, suction assisted, and twin cannula assisted. Non-invasive surgical equipment is classified into four categories, on the basis of technique used, namely, intragastric balloon system, cryolipolysis, cold laser shaping, and StomaphyX

The global increase in obesity rates, increasing number of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cardiac problems, rising personal disposable income, government initiatives to increase awareness about health and fitness, and technological advancements are the key factors driving the growth of the global weight loss/obesity management market. Nonetheless, a few critical factors such as availability of low cost alternatives, adoption of deceptive marketing strategies, and high cost of customized services are hindering the growth of the market.

The global weight loss management market was worth $265 billion in the year 2012; North America was the largest market for weight loss management market, followed by Europe and Asia. The Asian market, especially India and China, is expected to witness a boost in demand for weight loss products, and is poised to register maximum growth over the next five years, owing to the rising obesity rates and related health problems.
