Market Report Description

The North America Anti-Obesity Drugs Market would witness market growth of 9.3% CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2029).

The peripherally acting anti-obesity medications and the centrally acting anti-obesity drugs are the two primary subcategories that fall under the umbrella of the anti-obesity drug category. Anti-obesity drugs that work on the body's peripheral systems aid in weight loss without affecting the brain or hunger. The product inhibits the action of pancreatic lipase, which in turn impedes the hydrolysis of lipids in the gastrointestinal system and reduces the absorption of fat in the intestinal tract. There are many different kinds of medications, such as those that require a doctor's prescription and those that can be purchased without a doctor's permission.

These treatments could either be considered monotherapies or polytherapy, depending on how they are combined. On a national, regional, and international scale, obesity is a serious threat to public health. Because of an increase in the consumption of processed and unhealthy foods, a decrease in the amount of time spent being physically active, and a lack of understanding regarding the associated health hazards, the prevalence rate of obesity is increasing all over the region. As a consequence of this, the anticipated rise in demand for anti-obesity medication is anticipated to drive the expansion of the market.

According to Statistics Canada, the majority of adults in Canada are overweight or obese, with two out of every three falling into this category. In addition, the prevalence of childhood obesity has increased significantly over the past 25 years. The rise was observed in both male and female demographics and across all age brackets, except for those in the preschool category. Moreover, over 50% of Canadian children and adolescents do not engage in sufficient physical activity to achieve their maximum potential for growth and development. Thus, the growing prevalence of obesity among the regional population is expected to increase the demand and utilization of anti-obesity drugs propelling the market growth in the region.
