Online Weight Loss Services in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Online Weight Loss Services

Over the five years to 2017, the growing US economy and increased online activity has propelled revenue for the Online Weight Loss Services industry. Though the industry has only grown modestly over the past five years, this is largely due to a revenue spike in 2012, as many consumers signed up or re-enrolled in weight loss programs they forewent during the recession. However, despite favorable macroeconomic conditions, industry growth was limited by the proliferation of external operators that offer free online weight loss services that have siphoned potential consumers from the industry. Over the five years to 2022, the Online Weight Loss Services industry is expected to experience stronger revenue growth, as per capita disposable income is expected to rise, and more consumers become comfortable with conducting services using the internet.

This industry provides internet membership programs to consumers to assist them in losing weight or maintaining a desired weight. Online weight loss services generate revenue through subscription-based accounts and product sales. This industry does not include fitness tracking applications nor companies that generate their primary revenue through external advertisements and promotions.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
