The North American weight loss/obesity management market was worth $104 billion in the year 2012. The U.S. is the fastest-growing market due to the increasing obesity rate, rising awareness of health and fitness, aggressive marketing strategies to attract customers, and rise in number of diabetic patients. However, the economic slowdown, and high competition in North America will hinder the growth of the market.

In 2012, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) reported that the U.S. was the most obese country among developed countries; 36% of its population was obese. The U.S. accounted for the largest share of the North America weight management market in 2012. This is attributed to technological developments, new product launches, and the presence of more industry players compared to other developing regions.

The weight management industry in North America is flooded with technological advancements and innovations, especially in the weight loss fitness and surgical equipment market. In August 2012, ProForm launched ProForm launched ProForm 505 CST Treadmill, installed with iFit technology that offers live online trainers and workouts powered by Google Maps. Technological developments have also taken place in weight loss surgical procedures. Minimally-invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures that use highly sophisticated equipment like endoscopes and laparoscopes have been developed. In addition, non-invasive weight loss techniques like cryolipolysis, transoral obesity revision surgery, cold laser shaping, and Stomaphyx are also gaining popularity.
