The global body fat measurement market size was US$ 395.13 million in 2021. The global body fat measurement market size is estimated to reach US$ 714.3 million by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.
Body fat is measured to access the health status of a person. Obesity increases due to an increase in fat in the body, which can be the cause of many diseases. It varies according to the age and gender of the person. Various factors like adopting an unhealthy lifestyle, lack of physical mobility, change in eating habits, and stress leads to obesity. Instruments such as body scales, calipers, and others are used to measure body fat percentage. Moreover, several techniques were developed for the detection of body fat. Techniques such as hydrostatic weighing, bio-impedance analysis, dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry, air displacement plethysmography, and others are used to measure body fat.
