Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Within the weight management industry in Saudi Arabia, there is expected to be a growing focus on women's physical fitness during the forecast period, with the government increasingly recognising the damage that female obesity causes to the country. 2013 notably saw the government remove its ban on sports for girls in private schools and open a dedicated sports centre for girls. This trend will put increasing pressure on obese women and girls to lose weight, with many turning to weight management as a result. This will also be encouraged by the media focusing on the links between obesity and diabetes and heart disease and by a growing focus on celebrity culture and western lifestyle trends. A widening range of women will equate beauty with slimness during the forecast period. The report Weight Management in Saudi Arabia (http://www.marketreportsonline.com/277154.html) says Twinlab Corp was the clear leader in weight management in 2012, accounting for 21% value share. This company also saw the strongest growth in value share over the previous year, rising by over a percentage point. This was the strongest share gain within weight management. The company benefits from offering the well-advertised Fibresol brand in meal replacement slimming, with this brand accounting for 50% value share in this product area in 2012. The brand benefits from strong marketing support, wide distribution and affordable prices.

Another report on Vitamins and Dietary Supplements in Saudi Arabia (http://www.marketreportsonline.com/277153.html) says there is expected to be a widening acceptance for the concept of preventative healthcare during the forecast period. Consumers will become increasingly aware of their potential health risks and a growing number will take vitamins and dietary supplements in order to prevent health problems, even if these health problems are only likely to occur in the distant future. This trend will also be encouraged by rising disposable income levels, with these enabling a widening range of consumers to afford to consume vitamins and dietary supplements on a daily basis. The research, available for purchase at http://www.marketreportsonline.com/contacts/purchase.php?name=277153, says General Nutrition Centers was the only player in vitamins and dietary supplements with a double-digit value share in 2012, accounting for 11% share. The company offers an extremely wide range and is the only player with a strong and consistent distribution product in many niche products. As a result it dominates sales in many product areas. The company accounted for 95% value share in ashwagandha, alpha lipoic acid, DHEA, lecithin and melatonin in 2012, while accounting for over 85% share in sam-E, chitosan and mineral supplements. The company also dominates sales in co-enzyme Q10 and glucosamine with 60% and 51% value share respectively.
Also available is a market research report titled Sports Nutrition in Saudi Arabia at http://www.marketreportsonline.com/277050.html, that says sports nutrition saw volume sales decline in 2012 over the previous year. This was partly due to a limited range of products and brands being offered in this area, with Optimum Nutrition and GNC protein powder together accounting for 89% value share. Other brands and products meanwhile lacked a consistent or wide distribution presence.
