New Healthcare research report from Euromonitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2014 -- Weight management recorded 19% value growth to reach Won 932 billion in 2013. The category was over Won932 billion for the first time following such healthy growth. According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the obesity rate in South Korea was 24.1% in 2012, up from 21.6% in 2008. As the obesity rate is increasing, weight management also has shown healthy growth over the review period. However, Korean consumers prefer supporting products for losing weight rather than direct ingredients affecting weight loss. As a result, meal replacement sliming and other sliming products recorded value growth of 24% and 17% respectively, but weight loss supplements showed only 6% value growth in 2013. Other sliming products mainly consist of drinks which can boost fat oxidation during exercise.
