Technologies to tackle the growing problem (and opportunity) of obesity globally have been undervalued as a result of adverse judgments by the FDA and the market against fledgling obesity drugs.  It has been said that nature abhors a vacuum and, by analogy, the market for obesity treatment, driven by increasing prevalence, rapidly emerging data on the multiplying and costly effects of obesity’s complications, abhors a lack of new treatment options.

Technologies to tackle the growing problem (and opportunity) of obesity globally have been undervalued as a result of adverse judgments by the FDA and the market against fledgling obesity drugs.  It has been said that nature abhors a vacuum and, by analogy, the market for obesity treatment, driven by increasing prevalence, rapidly emerging data on the multiplying and costly effects of obesity’s complications, abhors a lack of new treatment options.  Manufacturers of device options and pharmaceuticals have generally not taken regulatory setbacks as a sign that the opportunity has diminished.

We forecast a robust market over the coming decade (with specific short-term milestone expected to buttress this) for both devices and drugs for the clinical management of obesity.  See our forecast of the aggregate and composite obesity treatment market below:
