September 7, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 7, 2018--The “UAE Weight Loss Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The UAE weight loss market was worth US$ 718 Million in 2017. The researchers expect this market to exceed US$ 1,124 Million by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of around 7.8% during 2017-2023.

The prevalence of overweight and obesity have been increasing rapidly in the UAE and are currently one of the highest in the world. Rising incomes and urbanisation in the UAE has resulted in a lifestyle which is very modern, fast paced and technology driven resulting in reduced physical activity and an increasing consumption of unhealthy food.

Dietary habits in the region have changed over the past few decades as a result of a strong proliferation of fast food joints, restaurants, online food delivery options, cafes, takeaways, etc. making processed foods, snacks and high sugar products easily available for consumers.

The temperature in the region is also extremely high for most of the year, resulting in limited outdoor activities such as sports, cycling, jogging, etc. Consumers generally stay indoors and use cars to travel even short distances.

Moreover, the traditional dress in the region which involves wearing of loose, flowing garments such as the dish-dash or abayas also represents a driving factor as unlike western dresses such as jeans or t-shirts, the excess weight gained goes comparatively unnoticed.

The weight loss market has been segmented on the basis of diet which mainly includes supplements, meals and beverages. Supplements currently represent the largest segment.

Based on the equipment, the market has been segregated into fitness equipment and surgical equipment. Fitness equipments currently account for the larger share.
