While marginal weight loss can be attained through personal efforts, weight and obesity problems require the intervention of weight management products and services. This market is driven by the growing demand for weight management services, the increasing incidence of child obesity, the increasing popularity of organic and healthy food, the emergence of Asians as big spenders on health and fitness products, and the rising health and fitness consciousness amongst women. The primary targets are individuals wanting to maintain their weight and body fitness, and those looking to lose weight quickly.
