Body Fat Measurement Market Report Segmentation Analysis

Key segments that contributed to the derivation of the Body Fat Measurement Market analysis are product and end user.

  • Based on product, the body fat measurement market is segmented into bioimpedance analyzers, body fat skinfold callipers, air displacement plethysmography, and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Bioimpedance analyzers segment held the largest share of the market, and the segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Bioimpedance analysis is a non-invasive, low cost, and the most commonly used method for body composition measurements and healthcare assessment systems.  Bioimpedance analysis in healthcare practice adds to the estimation of body compartments to assess the continuous change in the nutrition status of the in-patients and to monitor nutritional risk in out-patients. New advances have been made in traditional anthropometry with the development of automated optical scanning systems, which can quickly provide body dimensions such as length, breadth and circumference and a few validation studies have shown that these optical methods compare well with reference methods, although further refinements of the methods are required. New advances have been made in traditional anthropometry with the development of automated optical scanning systems, which can quickly provide body dimensions such as length, breadth and circumference and a few validation studies have shown that these optical methods compare well with reference methods, although further refinements of the methods are required. As bioelectric impedance body fat monitors use low voltage electric current, these are widely available for home use and at health clubs. Additionally, there is a broad spectrum of the utilization of bioimpedance in healthcare facilities such as disease prognosis and monitoring of vital body status. Therefore, owing to its extensive application, the demand for bioimpedance analyzers is likely to increase during the forecast period.
  • Based on end user, the body fat measurement market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, and fitness centers. In 2023, the hospitals segment held the largest share of the market. However, the fitness centers segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. The growing prevalence of osteoporosis is expected to increase the adoption of Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in various hospitals. Hospitals have included body composition testing as a crucial part of patient care and wellness programs. Over the past few years, the number of fitness clubs have increased considerably as a result of the growing focus on health and fitness among individuals. Based on a study conducted by the International Health, Racquet & Sports club Association (IHRSA) as part of the Physical Activity Council (PAC), about 1 out of 5 Americans (20.8%) joins at least one US health club or studio. At gyms and wellness centers, body composition analyzers not only measure the amount of body fat for weight loss but also deliver complete body composition assessment to maintain health. Therefore, owing to such aforementioned factors the fitness centers segment is likely to grow in the forecast period.
