Slimming aids are defined as dietary supplements that can help an individual lose weight or maintain a desired weight level. The Global Slimming Aids Market was valued at around XX billion USD in 2016 and is expected to grow by X% CAGR to reach nearly XX billion USD by 2022. Slimming aids can be of many different types based on their ingredients and method of consumption. Some popular types of slimming aids are diet pills, weight loss powders, special teas etc. Most slimming aids claim to help users lose weight with minimum or zero dependence on specialized diet plans or rigorous physical exercise regimens. The growth of the segment has mainly been fuelled by increased desire to have a fit and healthy body but reduced time to take part in specialized regimens.

End Users

The end users of slimming aids can be categorized based on their reason for using the product. For example, slimming aids can be used by individuals who are overweight and need supplements to help lose weight or by people who have achieved a desired weight and now want to maintain the desired weight. The choice of the slimming aid that the individual will use depends on their reason to use it and on other factors like affordability, availability etc.

Market Dynamics

The slimming aids market is a rapidly evolving market with new kinds of products being made available in quick succession. The market has tremendous growth potential as nearly 30% of the world population is overweight. At the same time, people are becoming more aware of the risks associated with obesity and desire a healthy body. As it is difficult for people to stick to specialized diets and/or exercise regimens, opportunities are available in the market for products that will help people lose weight while allowing them to follow their usual lifestyle. There is also growth potential in the market for products that can help people maintain their desired weight level in the long run. Some other factors that can aid the growth of the slimming aids market are rise in disposable income, rapid urbanisation, growth of fast food industry etc.

However, the market faces some threats as well. There have been instances where slimming aid manufacturers have been sued by consumers for not delivering the promised results. Also some studies have suggested a link between use of dietary weight loss supplements and emergency hospital visits. Some consumers have started moving towards healthy eating as opposed to using slimming aids. Hence, to succeed, companies need to provide products that can deliver the promised results and design marketing strategies that can allay consumer fears of side effects.
