According to the WHO, over 50% of people in Europe are overweight or obese. It also reveals a startling fact that in Europe, one out of every three 11-year olds is overweight or obese. Obesity leads to or is associated with a number of ailments such as diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, and diseases related to the liver and the gall bladder. Keeping in view the negative impact of obesity on general wellbeing, the need for managing weight has gained importance, thereby boosting the growth of the Europe weight management market. Increased awareness about weight management in the ageing population, increasing prevalence of the modern sedentary lifestyle, rise in purchasing power, and growing fitness obsession related to the glamour industry has contributed to the expansion of the market. Also, various governments across Europe have also been promoting fitness programs, to indirectly cut down on state healthcare expenses and to promote the general wellbeing of their population.

However, the report suggests that low-cost alternatives and the underperformance of weight loss drugs or supplements will restrain the growth of the Europe weight management market.
