Rising health and fitness awareness and the growing prevalence of obesity are major factors driving the global market. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% in 1999-2000 to 42.4% in 2017-2018. Moreover, awareness regarding obesity-related health conditions, including diabetes, stroke, heart diseases, and cancer, is increasing. This, in turn, is fueling the adoption of fitness apps to manage weight and aid weight loss.
The lockdown and social distancing norms by governments to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus have negatively impacted the gyms and fitness centers globally. However, consumers have shifted their focus to online fitness classes and apps. The total number of downloads and active users increased rapidly during the COVID-19 lockdown. For instance, the daily active users on fitness apps increased by 24% in Asia Pacific, 11% in Europe, 8% in Americas, and 28% in the Middle East and North Africa between quarter 1 and quarter 2 of 2020. Moreover, many fitness apps are witnessing an increase in their downloads and profits. For instance, HealthifyMe, an Indian fitness app, witnessed a 30% increase in traffic and a 40% increase in revenue in April 2020.
The exercise and weight loss segment held the largest share of 54.7% in 2020 owing to the increasing instances of obesity. As per the World Health Organization, obesity prevalence tripled between 1975 and 2016. According to a study conducted by the Global Burden of Disease in 2017, 8% of the global population died due to obesity.
The activity tracking segment is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing demand for wearable health tracking systems and the launch of new activity tracking devices. For instance, Fitbit launched wearables from USD 70 to USD 160 for providing affordable activity trackers in March 2019. Moreover, activity tracking apps introduced by different sports footwear companies, such as Runtastic by Adidas and Runkeeper by Asics, are supporting the growth of this segment.
By platform, iOS accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.6% in 2020. An increase in the adoption of iOS among consumers is a major parameter contributing to the growth of this segment. Approximately 26% of the iPhone, iPod, and iPad users adopted the iOS 14 update within five days of its release in September 2020. Moreover, growth in the adoption of devices, which use iOS, is fueling the segment growth. For instance, the active Apple device users increased from 1.4 billion in the first fiscal quarter of 2019 to 1.5 billion in the first fiscal quarter of 2020, according to Apple Inc. Fitness apps available for iOS include Fitocracy, Strava, FitStar, Fooducate, MyFitnessPal, and Nike Training Club.
The Android segment is expected to grow at a significant rate of 22.7% over the forecast period. This is attributed to the high usage rates of Android smartphones. In May 2017, there were more than 2 billion active Android users. In 2019, there were 2.5 billion monthly active Android users. Moreover, Android runs on more than 24,000 devices. Fitness apps available for the Android platform include Google Fit, Runstastic, MyFitnessPal, Sworkit, and Leap Fitness Workout Apps.
On the basis of devices, smartphones accounted for the largest revenue share of 67.6% in 2020. An increase in the penetration of smartphone users globally is a major parameter contributing to the growth of this segment. The global adoption of smartphones in 2019 was 65%, which is estimated to surge to 75% in 2022. In addition, 49% of the population utilized the internet on their mobile phone devices, according to the Mobile Economy Survey 2018. Increasing usage of the internet on smartphones is contributing to the segment growth.
The wearable devices segment is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. The growing consumer health consciousness and increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes and obesity, are boosting the demand for wearables. Wearable devices offer features such as long battery life, wireless connection, and mobile phone integration. Companies are introducing wearable devices for tracking and maintaining health and wellness, which, in turn, is positively driving the segment. For instance, in April 2020, Xiaomi launched a new fitness tracker in China.
North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 34.9%. This is attributed to increasing awareness about health and the high adoption rate of fitness apps. The usage of fitness apps rapidly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the COVID-19 related lockdown, 74% of the Americans used at least one fitness app, according to a survey conducted by Freeletics, a provider of artificial intelligence-based fitness and lifestyle training. Moreover, 60% of them are planning to cancel gym memberships.
