Global Weight Management Products Market: Drivers and Trends
The increasing prevalence of obesity and efforts to thwart unwanted weight gain has been at the forefront of driving growth in the global weight management market. Health experts are often left with little choice other than prescribe a host of weight management products to consumers having a hectic schedule which leaves them no time for workout or prepare healthy meals. Thrust on research and development programs to innovate products too has filliped the market along with increasing membership for health clubs.
Countering the growth in the global weight management products market is the expensiveness of the low-calorie foods and the deceptive claims about the properties of drugs by their marketers. Such claims are mostly not backed up by clinical research. Another major restraint to the market has been the increasing concerns voiced by researchers and health experts about the serious health consequences some of the products can have. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. has already prohibited the use of certain popular ingredients in weight loss products due to the side effects they have. The side effects include, increased heart rate, diarrhea, kidney problems, high blood pressure, and even liver damage.
