Global anti-obesity drugs market: Worldwide increase in both incidence and prevalence of obesity

The prevalence and incidence of obesity population worldwide is very high because of the limited efficacy of currently available drugs.

Hence, driving the growth of the global anti-obesity drug market.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “Research has shown that obesity in adults has steadily increased since the 1980’s. In 2015 and 2016, around 39.6% of American adults over the age of 20 years were considered as obese. In 2017, Egypt had about 19 million obese adults, which is the highest rate worldwide and the US had the highest percentage of obese children. In 2014, it was reported that 51.6% of the EU’s population was overweight.”
