Market data and analytics are derivedThe global market for Weight Control Related Food and Beverage Products is projected to reach US$30.9 billion by 2024, driven by the growing wave of obesity sweeping through countries worldwide and increasing consumer shift towards non-invasive fat reduction treatments. Leading causes for obesity include globalization of unhealthy lifestyles including western styled carbohydrates rich diets and physical inactivity in urban areas; rising incidence of chronic disease conditions such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, poly cystic ovaries; and genetics. Weight loss and maintenance represent long-term strategies that provide a steady flow of demand for weight control products, especially nonprescription weight-loss products. Growing awareness over the risks, complications and side effects of bariatric surgery such as dilation of esophagus; bowel obstruction; chronic acid reflux; stomach or intestine ulceration; low blood sugar; spleen or other organ injury; pulmonary and cardiac complications, is leading to increased interest in safe, healthy and natural weight loss products. Acceptance and adoption of professional weight loss services and body transformation programs is being driven by improved understanding of the comorbid conditions and risks of obesity such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, kidney failure, fatty liver diseases and cancer. The market stands to especially benefit from technology innovations such as satiety innovations aimed at promoting fullness and controlling hunger; low calorie foods with artificial sweeteners; breakthrough food innovations incorporating functional ingredients and natural extracts such as green tea extract, and extracts of guarana, and ginger root or garcinia cambogia, among numerous others that naturally help fix hormones that control appetite and fat storage. As the most obese nation in the world, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, followed by Europe. Per capita expenditure on weight loss and weight control products in these regions is witnessing strong growth as consumers focus on leading healthy and active lifestyles and exhibit willingness to pay a premium for high-quality, nutritious food. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.6% over the analysis period, led by growing obesity among the newly emerging base of affluent middle class population amid changing dietary habits, Westernization of Asian diets and widespread availability of energy-dense palatable foods.
