In terms of the modern healthcare scenario, obesity is a massive concern that is present across all regions in the world. They are particularly concerning as obesity can give rise to several other associated chronic conditions such as diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. In certain individuals struggling with effective weight management, the usage of certain prescription and over the counter drugs called diet pills, may help. These medications work in the number of ways to aid in effective weight management. Some of these diet pills may block the absorption of fat, and also suppress the appetite to aid in weight management. Hence, increasing prevalence and concerns with obesity, coupled with key regulatory approvals are expected to aid in the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Geographically, the diet pills market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. North America is projected to account as the dominant market share. The dominance of North America can be primarily attributed to the factors such as strong incidence of obesity, high prevalence of chronic diseases linked to obesity, and the recent regulatory approvals to certain key diet pills. For instance, according to the data published by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2021, the prevalence of obesity was 42.4% in 2017-2018. Europe is expected to account for the second largest market share in global market. Rising prevalence of obesity in the region, presence of key regulatory approvals, and greater awareness of obesity are primarily responsible for the market expansion in Europe. On the other hand, the market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow with the highest CAGR primarily due to increasing prescription drug expenditure and increasing prevalence of obesity in key countries such as China. Latin America and the Middle East & Africa are anticipated to account for limited lower market revenue shares and growth rates. However, strong improvement in healthcare infrastructure coupled with increasing demand for prescription drugs for weight management in these regions are likely to aid the market growth in the forecast period.
