Anorexiants Market Approximate To Grow $1,403.13 Million By 2032, CAGR: 4.8%

Anorexiants Market Size Worth $1,403.13 Million By 2032 | CAGR: 4.8%

The global anorexiants market size is expected to reach USD 1,403.13 million by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Anorexiants Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Drug Class (Catecholamines, Serotonin); By Route of Administration; By End User; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The growth of the global anorexiants market is highly attributable to the rising consumer interest in weight management, which, in a way, limits appetite. The availability of the class of drugs that suppress appetite is gaining consumers attention as a measure to control calorie intake, creating higher demand. This is driving the pharmaceutical companies to enhance their production capacity. For instance, in February 2024, Novo Holdings unveiled its strategy to acquire Catalent to promote the supply of Wegovy, a weight loss injection, and Ozempic, a diabetic shot, for $16.5 billion.

As the number of people suffering from obesity grows significantly in the future, there will be a huge demand for appetite management drugs in the marketplace during the study period. According to the World Obesity Federation Report 2023, about 4 million people, which is more than 50% of the global population, are estimated to be obese by 2035.

The growing gap between energy consumption and energy spent on physical activities is the building factor leading to the rise in obesity. The increase in the number of people opting for lifestyle modification, with a higher focus on body look due to the growing use of social media, is stimulating the demand for appetite-control medications, such as anorexiants. A 2023 study found that TikTok and Instagram have a significant influence in educating weight management among youth of color in the United States.

The prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cardiac arrest, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers, among obese people is grabbing the attention of consumers to consult doctors for treatment, facilitating the need for obese medications, including anorexiants, in healthcare settings. According to the University of Colorado Boulder Research in 2023, obesity increases the risk of death from a minimum of 22% to a maximum of 91%. According to another study, losing weight by 5–10% with diet and physical activities among obese people lowered the risk of developing cardiovascular disease among obese adults.

The growing research studies focusing on the innovation of new medication formulations for the treatment of obesity and weight management are anticipated to showcase significant demand for anorexiants in the world. For instance, in November 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the approval of a chronic weight management injection, Zepbound (tirzepatide). In January 2024, Eli Lilly announced its plan to introduce the obesity drug Mounjaro in India in the next year.
