Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Food and Ingredients for Weight Management 2008 - Health Issues, Global trends and Innovations

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0178057/Food-and-Ingredients-for-Weight-Management-2008---Health-Issues-Global-trends-and-Innovations.html

Executive Summary

The report provides product developers and other stakeholders, working within functional foods, beverages and nutritional supplements, with a general understanding and overview of the area of weight management, health and nutrition in terms of market, products, application areas, ingredient use and functions. The focus is on products meant to achieve health goals such as weight management, reducing blood lipids, sugar levels and unbalanced metabolism. Overweight often leads to various combinations of life style diseases such as metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes. The medical risk parameters are circum peripheral adiposity, high cholesterol, high blood lipids and high blood sugar. The report analyzes and provides an overview of current producers and innovators on the weight loss management market. This USD 10 bn weight loss and management market is highly driven by 'pull' from more and more consumers and 'push' from new product and ingredient innovations.

More than 500 products launched globally in 2007 are analyzed in this report. Medical professionals are increasing research for medical, nutritional and surgical solutions. The food and supplement industry does not seem to have a clear strategy in this market in spite of having the best access and knowledge about consumers and life style products. Obesity and associated life style diseases are also a major concern in developing countries around the world. Confusion is rising among consumers. Within the recent years, we have seen an explosion in new food ingredients and designer foods and supplements on the market. Many food products have a short lifecycle and face a tough future as consumers are increasingly becoming aware of what they eat, how it was produced and the health benefits offered.

The health and wellness trend is thriving. Body Mass Index (BMI) is the most common measurement for overweight and obesity. The obesity epidemic affects all demographic groups including children. Changes in consumer values and attitudes will increasingly shape products to be designed and marketed accordingly. Products and marketing will need to move towards a new and more targeted approach. Ten global consumer mega-trends are identified: Age, Gender, Life stage, Income, Convenience, Health, Sensory, Individualism, Homing and Connectivity. Out of these, 'Health' has been ranked as the most important trend. Amongst global industry executives in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry, health has been identified as the most important of the mega-trends shaping new product development (NPD) and marketing. Consequently, the market is flooded with products claiming various health benefits. There is a market opportunity, or gap in the market, for products with understandable communication, as well as consumer advice on how to manage weight effectively through diet products.
