U.S. Weight Loss Market Report 2024 - Revolutionary Weight Loss Drugs Reshape U.S. Market Landscape

Dublin, March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "U.S. Weight Loss Market: 2024 Status Report & Forecast" report from Marketdata LLC has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report presents a wrap-up of 2023 performance for the U.S. weight loss market during the obesity drugs market explosion and a forecast for 2024. The value of the total market is estimated to have grown to a historic peak of $90 billion in 2023, boosted by soaring sales of the popular prescription GLP-1 weight loss drugs. This is a paradigm shift to medical programs, and a major challenge for competing commercial diet companies, which lost $1 billion in revenues since 2022.

GLP-1 drugs are a game changer in terms of the number of medications now on the market, plus others to come in the next several years. They have affected dieter behavior and how commercial diet companies operate. Nearly all non-medical segments of the market have felt the pain of declining sales, and 26,500 weight loss coaches have lost their jobs. However, more physicians are adding weight loss to their practices, bariatric surgeries are hitting new highs, and caseloads/revenues at medical weight loss franchises and at bariatricians are growing.

The report includes in-depth analyses of: 2020-2023 market/revenue performance, recent competitor and market developments, current dieter trends, diet company advertising spending, and a new analysis of the number and salaries of weight loss coaches in the industry. Special emphasis and analysis on the obesity drugs market, risks, what could derail the market, and why there is a wild west environment emerging - problems with using cheaper compounded drugs that are not FDA-approved.

Individual status reports and the effects of the obesity drugs boom on Operations and revenues, for all major weight loss market segments, diet soft drinks, artificial sweeteners, health clubs industry, commercial weight loss chains, retail meal replacements, and retail appetite suppressants, medical programs (physicians, hospitals/clinic programs, prescription diet drugs, bariatrician, weight loss surgeries), and low-calorie dinner entrees.
