The UAE weight loss market was worth US$ 772 Million in 2018. This market is expected to exceed US$ 1,208 Million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of around 7.8% during 2019-2024.

The prevalence of overweight and obesity have been increasing rapidly in the UAE and are currently one of the highest in the world. Rising incomes and urbanisation in the UAE has resulted in a lifestyle which is very modern, fast paced and technology driven resulting in reduced physical activity and an increasing consumption of unhealthy food.

Dietary habits in the region have changed over the past few decades as a result of a strong proliferation of fast food joints, restaurants, online food delivery options, cafes, takeaways, etc. making processed foods, snacks and high sugar products easily available for consumers.

The temperature in the region is also extremely high for most of the year, resulting in limited outdoor activities such as sports, cycling, jogging, etc. consumers generally stay indoors and use cars to travel even short distances.

Moreover, the traditional dress in the region which involves wearing of loose, flowing garments such as the dish-dash or abayas also represents a driving factor as unlike western dresses such as jeans or t-shirts, the excess weight gained goes comparatively unnoticed.

Driven by the rising levels of overweight and obesity, there has been an increasing trend on prevention and treatment of this issue. This has resulted in a large and fast growing market for weight loss services and products.
