There are many untapped niche markets that exist, especially in the service and healthcare sectors. Either it’s an emerging or nascent market that hasn’t been discovered, or is too small to be considered by large companies. Yet, they can be very profitable and may have huge potential for growth.

This is a completely new Marketdata report. The following six sectors are covered, in terms of the void in the market, why demand exists, the proposed concept or service, background about the market’s dollar potential, scalability, competition, potential end-user demand, estimated start-up costs, franchising potential, and a comprehensive list of resources for follow-up.

Covered:

1) A medical weight loss chain built upon the Preventative Health Care Benefit of the Affordable Care Act (obesity screening & counseling service)

2) Training/consulting company for MDs and other healthcare professionals that want to add a medical weight loss program to their practice.

3) A 24 hr. weight loss cable TV channel
