The global market for Bathroom Scales is projected to exceed US$3.1 billion by 2024, driven by the epidemic spread of obesity and the ensuing focus shed on healthcare interventions aimed at long-term weight loss and weight management. Growing awareness over the numerous health implications of obesity such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension and diabetes is fueling adoption of proactive weight management strategies among the general public especially the urban population. Other broad market forces that provide the foundation for growth include expanding base of affluent middle class population from 38.9% of total global population in 2015 to 47.2% by 2025 and the resulting demand for high quality weighing scales for home use; rising global healthcare expenditure and the resulting bright outlook for health maintenance products; rise of health conscious women as a lucrative consumer cluster supported by the increase in working women with high disposable incomes; increased participation in fitness routines; growing desire especially among the aging population to lead active lifestyles. Technology innovations will continue to remain important, dictating growth patterns in the market. Few of the noteworthy innovations include development of multifunctional bathroom scales; launch of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled smart scales with built-in compatibility for smartphones and tablets; advanced digital electronic scales with bioelectrical impedance analysis; bathroom scales with large LED backlit screens; developments in innovative and accurate load sensors and portable designs with tempered glass construction; and talking weighing scales for the visually impaired. Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.7% over the analysis period led by factors such as growing proportion of “at-risk” population as a result of unhealthy sedentary lifestyles and high intake of calorie and carbohydrate rich foods; growing trend towards self-management of obesity and cardio-metabolic fitness and the ensuing need for home fitness monitoring equipment including weighing scales that can be used in the privacy and comfort of one’s bathroom and bedroom.
