Commercial Weight Loss Centers On Pace For 18% Sales Gain In 2018

Dec. 4, 2018

Based on individual public company-provided guidance for expected full-year revenues, as of the end of the 3rd quarter of 2018, Marketdata estimates that commercial weight loss companies will post a strong 18% sales gain this year. The industry has not seen a sales gain this large in a long time.

This segment of the weight loss market is estimated by Marketdata to be worth $3.74 billion in 2018 when inflating the sales of the top 4 companies by 20% to account for all other smaller weight loss chains.

Here are the results:         2017 Sales      2018 Sales   ($ millions)

Weight Watchers            $1,307               $1,530

NutriSystem                         697                     693

Medifast                                301                     495

Jenny Craig                          334                     400

Combined total:       $2,639                  $3,118  (+18.1%)

It's unlikely that the industry can post another gain of this magnitude in 2019, especially if the economy loses steam next year after a very long recovery, entering a mild recession.
