The market is currently restrained due to a confused positioning. Number of weight loss methods available in the market are making it difficult for market players to drive brand recall among the consumers. Failed attempts to reduce weight by the consumers discourage them to go in for further weight loss trials. Hence it is very essential for market players to understand the target audience and their specific needs to provide them umbrella solutions.
The significantly high rate of new products in the weight management segment necessitates industry participants to adopt proactive strategies. Moreover, the larger chunk of the market is not only driven by significant products such as fitness devices and food market, there also exist added opportunities in the minor market such as for fitness accessories. This necessitates a further need to understand clearly the characteristics and demand for the micro-markets so as to obtain a holistic view of the industry. North America is the largest market for weight management. However, Europe is catching up with an expected CAGR of 10.2% during the period 2009 to 2014, owing to increased adoption of the services and products. Asian markets are expected to ensure long term growth due to increased health awareness.
