Global Obesity Epidemic Opens Market Opportunity For Weight Management Products

June 23, 2010: 12:29 AM EST
The convenience-based Western diet has attracted an ever increasing number of prosperous, more sedentary Asian professionals to such a degree that obesity has become significant problem. That trend, and a burgeoning consumer interest in active health management, provides a significant market opportunity in countries like China and India for weight management ingredients, according to market researcher Frost & Sullivan. Revenues in the market, which includes satiety ingredients and appetite suppressants, fat burners (thermogenic ingredients) and other products, were $7.5 billion in 2008 and are expected to hit $13.9 billion by 2015. Success in the global weight management ingredients market depends on finding innovative ways to prolong ingredient lifespan, working toward securing favorable legislation, and introducing new ingredients, the report says.
