The market in North America is anticipated to hold the largest share in the anti-obesity drugs market. This can be attributed to the high prevalence of obesity in the region, especially in the United States. The growing healthcare expenditure and increasing approval of anti-obesity drugs further contribute towards the market growth. On the other hand, the market in the Asia Pacific region is predicted to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period on account of growing incidences of diabetes and other such disorders which are associated with obesity.
