Obesity is a serious health concern that results in many other health problems. One in three adults in the US is suffering from obesity. Diet pills are consumed to lose weight. With the rising trend of losing weight and becoming fit, there is a growing demand for these medications. These medications don’t replace healthy eating habits or physical exercise for losing weight. Diet pills may improve a person’s health by reducing their weight; therefore, lowering blood sugar, blood pressure, and triglycerides. These diet pills work by increasing body metabolism, blocking the body from absorbing fat, increasing fat burning, and reducing appetite. A few diet pills contain stimulant medications and are classified as controlled substances by the US Drug Enforcement Agency. Nowadays, researchers are studying several new compounds to identify safer and more effective approaches to treat the issue of obesity in patients.

Despite the rise in the prevalence of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity, consumers are becoming aware of the side effects of weight-loss medicines and diet pills. However, manufacturers are introducing several types of diet pills that can mitigate their adverse impact on health and improve weight loss processes to provide better results. The diet pills market is likely to witness steady growth with many manufacturers and distributors entering the market. Stakeholders are launching herbal weight loss supplements and natural diet pills to attract many health-conscious consumers, ultimately gaining a competitive edge in the diet pills market. This is anticipated to remain a leading trend in the diet pills market in the coming years.

The prescription segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. However, the herbal supplements segment is expected to have the highest CAGR.

Consumers’ knowledge of the importance of well-being and disease prevention is rising with the growing availability and use of online medicine portals and health organization websites for consultation.

Further, the rising popularity of fitness, bodybuilding, and specialist sports among people aged 20–40 drives the demand for diet pills and supplements that can help them achieve their aesthetic goals or improve their performance. The number of gym and fitness enthusiasts has risen dramatically in the last decade. Many fitness coaches and professionals recommend the intake of diet pills for weight loss. Many global diet pill industry players will likely introduce new diet pills in the next decade.

The rise in consumers’ purchasing power has resulted in various lifestyle changes, including decreased physical activities and unhealthy eating habits that cause high-calorie intake, eventually leading to a surge in the obese population. However, increased health awareness among consumers has prompted them to choose a healthy lifestyle that includes more physical activities and food intake awareness.
