United States Telehealth Weight Loss Market Report 2024: Surge in Telehealth Weight Loss Programs Amidst GLP-1 Medications Boom - Analysis, Forecasts, and Consolidation Insights for 2025

Dublin, April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The U.S. Telehealth Weight Loss Market" report from Marketdata LLC has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering

The report includes in-depth analyses of: the scope of telehealth usage in the U.S., telehealth user demographics, pros and cons, criticisms, investment in telehealth, 2020-2024 market/revenue estimates, 2028 forecasts, what fees are charged by telehealth companies, recent competitor and market developments, comparisons of weight loss coaches and telemedicine coaches (number, salaries, by state), and the GLP-1 compounding pharmacies situation and its effect on the market.

This new Marketdata report presents an analysis of weight loss programs provided by various telehealth/telemedicine platforms. Telehealth soared during the pandemic in 2020 as consumers stayed home and communicated with their physicians via Zoom video calls and by phone, email and chat. The number of telehealth companies exploded. Then, in 2021-2023, as demand for the GLP-1 weight loss medications took off, many of these telehealth providers added weight loss plans based on access to these drugs, plus support.

The market became more crowded in 2023, as more telehealth companies entered the GLP-1 drugs market, and consumers began to return to in-person doctor visits. The percent of American adults using telehealth services fell from 37% in 2021 to 22% by 2023. 2025 could be a difficult year where we see consolidation, as the GLP-1 meds shortages disappear with new production capacity and the many compounding pharmacies stop making compounded semaglutide that so many dieters are now using.
