Market Segmentation

By Drug type:

Based on the type, the market is classified as prescription drugs and OTC drugs. The prescription drugs segment accounted for the majority of the market share. The availability of therapeutically effective weight management drugs, which are centrally acting or peripherally acting, is majorly responsible for the dominance of the segment. Whereas, over-the-counter drugs are slowly taking gaining the market share owing to the patent expiration of the branded drugs.

By Distribution Channel:

In terms of the distribution channel, the market is segmented into hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and online pharmacies. The hospital pharmacy segment holds the largest share due to the increased patient visits and sales of prescription-based drugs for weight loss. In addition, the high preference for patients to buy products from nearby pharmacies on a regular basis owing to the availability of lost-cost drugs is responsible for the growth of the retail pharmacy segment. The online pharmacy segment is estimated to grow substantially owing to the development of online platforms for the delivery of prescriptions, as well as OTC drugs to the patients.

Major Players

GlaxoSmithKline PLC, Novo Nordisk AS, Pfizer Inc., F Hoffmann-La Roche AG, and Bayer AG. The market is consolidated owing to the presence of limited market players focusing on obesity management. Currently, Novo Nordisk is dominating the market and holds a larger share. The company’s dominance is attributable to the strong sales of anti-obesity drug ‘Saxenda.’ coupled with its innovative pipeline and market development activities to expand its obesity product portfolio.
