This groundbreaking new study by Marketdata examines the $1.2 billion
business of worksite-based weight loss programs. This niche segment is one of
the few bright spots in a flat overall weight loss market, as employers get more
serious about reducing health insurance claims related to obesity. The
Affordable Care Act is likely to spur more demand for these programs as well.
Obesity-related absenteeism, lost productivity and medical conditions such as
diabetes is a huge and expensive issue for employers.
The study examines market revenues/growth from 2005 to 2018 forecast, in-depth
competitor profiles and rankings, obesity trends and the cost to employers,
market structure/types of weight loss and wellness programs offered to employers
on-site, and the effect of Obamacare. The study covers: yearly employer cost per
employee, return on investment, screening, prevention, health risk assessments,
employee incentives used, findings of various national studies examining
employer weight loss programs, worksite competitions, the nature of providers
(large commercial and medical diet companies, health plans, start-ups and
entrepreneurs), and more.
Study includes 24 in-depth profiles for: Weight Watchers, Mayo Clinic, Retrofit,
Alere Wellbeing, Emblem Health, Omada Health, Balance Health, Wellness Councils
of America, ShapeUp, Sparkpeople, YMCA and more.
