Growing Obesity Pandemic to Drive Anti-Obesity Drugs Market Growth

Although the world has achieved significant success in combating infectious illnesses, this progress is being hampered by an increase in the prevalence of heart and lung disease, diabetes, lifestyle-related malignancies, and other non-communicable diseases. Obesity has been a significant contributor to the rise of these illnesses. Obesity is a multi-cause problem rooted in the sedentary nature of today’s lifestyle, & potentially even physiological disruption of the gut microbiome. The scope and causes of the fast-growing obesity pandemic are the research areas of major pharmaceutical companies across the globe.

Obesity Has Now Become a Significant Global Issues that Required a Large-Scale Intervention Strategy

Obesity has now become a significant global issue that requires a large-scale intervention strategy. Overweight or obese persons make up approximately 2.1 billion people, or more than 30% of the worldwide population. That's almost twice the number of individuals who are underweight. Obesity is responsible for about 5% of all deaths worldwide, despite the fact that it is preventable. If current trends persist, half of the global adult population will be overweight over the next decade. Over the projected period, all these factors are expected to drive the development of the anti-obesity medicines market.

Obesity is Responsible for Approximately 5% of all Fatalities Worldwide

Obesity has significant emotional, societal, and financial consequences. Obesity is responsible for around 5% of all fatalities worldwide. Obesity has a worldwide economic effect of US$2.0 trillion, which is comparable to the global economic cost of smoking or armed violence, &war. Obesity costs health-care systems anywhere from 2% to 7% of total health-care expenditure in industrialized countries. This does not include the high cost of treating related illnesses, which some estimates put at much to 20% of total health-care costs. Obesity is also undermining staff productivity, jeopardizing a company's competitiveness, according to mounting research.

Type 2 Diabetes is One of the Primary Health Care Expenses of Obesity

One of the main health-care expenses of obesity is type 2 diabetes, a metabolic disease characterized by insulin resistance and persistently elevated blood sugar in the body. If left untreated, the illness may develop to serious consequences such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, renal failure, and inadequate blood supply to the limbs, resulting in sores and amputations. Type 2 diabetes prevalence has risen in lockstep with obesity rising prevalence rates. According to the International Diabetes Federation, over 600 million people may be afflicted by diabetes by 2035. Pre-diabetes, or reduced glucose tolerance, affects an additional 316 million individuals worldwide. These people have no obvious symptoms and are thus seldom identified; nevertheless, 40% of them develop full-fledged diabetes within five to 10 years.

Diabetes used to be mostly a disease of elderly individuals in rich countries. However, its demographics are quickly changing. It now affects younger people and is spreading globally. Diabetes is becoming more prevalent in teenagers, young adults, and even children. By 2035, emerging countries are anticipated to account for about 80% of the increase in prevalence, owing to fast economic development, increasing affluence, and the adoption of Western lifestyles. During this time, the number of individuals with diabetes in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) area and the rest of Africa is expected to double. Minority and indigenous groups have a greater incidence of type 2 diabetes than white Caucasians, which is thought to be due in part to differences in genetic susceptibilities. Other variables, such as socioeconomic inequalities & health-care access, may also play a role.

Obesity has Risen in Recent Years as a Result of Changes in Lifestyle Patterns

Obesity has risen in recent years as a result of changes in human lifestyle and a high-energy diet, and it has even become a danger factor for youngsters. There are many pharmacologic compounds accessible as anti-obesity medicines, but they come with dangerous side effects, therefore natural products have been utilized in many Asian nations to treat obesity. Natural products' potential for treating obesity is yet mostly untapped, but they may be a great option for the safe and effective development of anti-obesity medicines.

Growing Burden of Chronic Disease Anticipated to Boost Market Growth Through 2031

Obesity and overweight are significant risk factors for a wide variety of chronic illnesses, and their rising prevalence throughout the country has serious consequences for the population's health and well-being. Obesity's economic cost, as well as the chronic illnesses to which it contributes, has reached new highs. Chronic illnesses caused by obesity and overweight accounted for over $500 billion in direct health-care expenditures in the United States in 2020, with an additional $1.24 trillion in indirect costs owing to lost economic output. The overall cost of chronic illnesses caused by obesity and overweight in the United States was $1.72 trillion, or 9.3% of GDP (GDP). Obesity is by far the most significant contribution to the burden of chronic illnesses in the United States, accounting for 47.1 percent of total chronic disease costs nationally.
