Obesity/Overweight – Geographic Focus: China – Obesity / Overweight – China In-Depth (China)

Obesity is recognized as a chronic disease and public health concern globally. The primary goals of obesity treatment are to improve patients’ health outcomes and quality of life. Physicians attempt to achieve these goals by reducing excess fat mass, preventing weight regain, and addressing obesity-related comorbidities such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and type 2 diabetes. Unlike other highly prevalent disorders in China, obesity lacks prescription drug treatments. However, this therapy market will experience strong growth over the forecast period, fueled by the launch and uptake of several GLP-1 receptor analogues, including semaglutide (Novo Nordisk’s Wegovy), tirzepatide (Eli Lilly’s Zepbound), Innovent Biologic’s mazdutide, and a fixed-dose combination of cagrilintide + semaglutide (Novo Nordisk’s CagriSema). In this report, we explore how unmet needs, pricing, coverage, and regulatory reforms in China will influence the launch and uptake of new therapies in this highly lucrative market.
