About The Global Ketogenic Diet Market

The global ketogenic diet market size was valued at USD 9.57 billion in 2019 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% from 2020 to 2027. The rising prevalence of overweight and obesity problems among the young generation, millennials, and the working-class population is fueling market growth. The ketogenic diet has also become an effective way for weight management as obesity leads to a number of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and high blood pressure. These health-related problems are anticipated to propel the demand for a ketogenic diet over the forecast period. Over the past few years, the obese population has increased significantly, which has propelled the demand for an effective weight-management diet. The ketogenic diet has gained traction across the globe in recent years owing to its good results across all age groups. This diet is specifically a high fat and low-carbohydrate diet. There are four types of ketogenic diets: standard, cyclical, targeted, and a high-protein ketogenic diet. For further information, please see:
