U.S. Body Fat Measurement Market size, by Product, 2012- 2024 (USD Mn)
Rising prevalence of obesity and other metabolic disorders, increasing advancements in BIA devices, expansion of established players in international market and growing awareness regarding increased body weight are major factors driving the global body fat measurement market size.
Growing prevalence of obesity called for the need to control body weight and body fat levels. Worldwide obesity prevalence has doubled since 1980, with more than 1.4 billion adults being overweight and over 600 million were obese in 2014. As per CDSCO, more than one third of population in 2014 was obese in U.S. Moreover, associated life threatening conditions such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disorders, the body fat measurement market is set to foresee a rapid rise in demand in the coming years.
Industry will be further driven by technological advancements in development of segmental analysis and BIA devices. The development of segmental analysis enabled devices to calculate segmental body fat percentage, thereby, greatly increasing their accuracy. The improved accuracy at relatively cheaper prices will significantly fuel industry growth.
Rising awareness regarding increased body weight and increasing acceptance of fitness trainings should significantly drive the business. There has been surge in number of people taking up sports and athletic and body training activities followed by increased number of health clubs and gym facilities driving the global body fat measurement devices market.
Body Fat Measurement Market, By Product
Global body fat measurement market size was largely driven by Bioimpedance analyzers in 2015, and this trend will continue throughout the forecast period. Bioimpedance analyzers market was valued at over USD 140 million in 2015, driven by technological advancements leading to increased accuracy and efficient combination with hydrostatic weighing and calipers.
Furthermore, growing use of DEXA bone densitometers for the purpose of body composition analysis and incorporation of the NHANES whole body composition results into increased usage of DEXA software for whole body fat and lean mass composition analysis. The additional testing capabilities associated with DEXA should maintain the segment growth throughout the forecast timeframe.
Body Fat Measurement Market, By Region
U.S. leads the industry with revenue of more than USD 146 million, contributing to revenue share of over 88 % in 2015, due to the presence of large patient pool with obesity and other metabolism related disorders. Apart from this, increased awareness regarding obesity, as well as rising trend towards fitness training should further contribute to the revenue share.
APAC, with growth hinged at Japan, and China body fat measurement market share is slated to lead the way with highest growth estimate of 8.9%, becoming the most lucrative region for industry expansion. This region marks the presence of large BIA device manufacturers such as Tanita Corporation and Omron HCB.
Competitive Market Share
The industry is highly fragmented in nature, due to presence of diverse products used in body fat measurement procedures. For instance, COSMED is a single player contributing to almost the entire share of air displacement plethysmography (ADP), while GE Healthcare would be the corporate giant accounting for a significant share in DEXA testing revenues. Overall, Tanita Corporation, and AccuFitness dominate the industry.
The other key players operating in the body fat measurement market share include Omron HCB, GE Healthcare, Hologic Inc., Inbody Co. Ltd., and Beurer GmbH.
Body Fat Measurement Industry Background
Global body fat measurement market is witnessing favorable political scenario due to introduction of government reforms such as 12th Five Year Plan in China to promote healthcare facilities across the country, and government support to cater to the rapidly growing prevalence of obesity in the developed markets of North America and Europe. Apart from this, strong economic development resulting into development of healthcare infrastructure in the emerging countries pose a growth potential for the market due to increase in buying power of healthcare consumers. APAC will witness healthy market growth owing to increased healthcare spending and rising per capita disposable income levels in these countries. Moreover, the expected growth of BIA devices and caliper segments, increasing penetration of DEXA and ADP segments and a growing population base are some factors that will fuel regional industry growth during the forecast period.
