South Korea Weight Loss and Weight Management Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5.8% During 2024-2032, Aided by the Rising Obesity Rates and Sedentary Lifestyle

South Korea Weight Loss and Weight Management Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘The South Korea Weight Loss and Weight Management Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% in the forecast period of 2024-2032. The surge of various weight loss options and growing health issues are expected to drive the market growth.

The South Korea weight loss and weight management market is driven by rising obesity rates fueled by sedentary lifestyles and increased consumption of processed foods in South Korea. Despite cultural ideals favouring thinness, obesity is on the rise, especially among lower-income populations. According to the Korean Society for the Study of Obesity, about 40% of the population is obese.


Consumers turn to dietary supplements and quick-fix solutions like meal replacements and fasting supplements for slimming. Bariatric surgery, once a last resort, is gaining acceptance due to technological advancements, offering a more comfortable and effective weight loss option. This reflects a shifting attitude towards surgical interventions for long-term weight management.


Further, during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the inflationary pressure and economic slowdown, the demand for body fat reduction through nutraceuticals observed growth. In May 2020, Amorepacific Group inaugurated the Green Tea Probiotics Research Center, aimed at advancing research on a newly discovered lactobacillus strain found in organic green tea gardens in Jeju Island, Korea. Amorepacific has published findings confirming the strain's efficacy in reducing inflammation factors in the stomach. The center will further explore applications of this probiotic strain in health food, cosmetics, and other fields while expanding research into microbiomes to bolster its research capabilities alongside existing Anti-pollution and Herbal Medicinal Science Research Centers.
