Weight Management Market, by Product Type (Fitness Equipment (Cardiovascular Training Equipment, Strength Training Equipment, Body Composition Analyzers, and Fitness Monitoring Equipment), Surgical Equipment (Minimally Invasive and Non-invasive) and Supplements (Protein, Fiber, Green Tea Extract, and Conjugate Linoleic Acid) - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Weight management is an approach to a healthy lifestyle. It includes a balance of healthy balanced diet and physical exercise, to maintain energy intake and energy expenditure. An individual with healthy eating habits can control under-consumption and over-consumption of food. Fad diets that promote fast and temporary weight loss are not included in weight management, rather it focuses on slow weight loss to attain ideal body weight.

Globally, the obese population is increasing, in turn, increasing the incidence of chronic diseases such as musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and diabetes. Treatment of such diseases is highly expensive thus, increasing the demand for weight management programs. According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimation, in 2016, 13% of world’s adult population was obese, particularly 15% of global women and 11% of global men population. From 1975 to 2016, the prevalence rate of obesity almost tripled. This indicates an immense potential for growth of the weight management market.
