U.S. lifestyle diseases apps market size, by platform type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

According to a World Economic Forum study published in September 2020, the market for fitness applications has grown by over 45% across the globe in downloads and is anticipated to continue to grow as more people adopt smart devices, smart wearables, and smartphones. The COVID-19 pandemic caused widespread lockdowns and social segregation rules, which supported the shift from conventional studios and gyms to virtual fitness. It has consequently resulted in a rise in app downloads and subscriptions for lifestyle diseases.

The lifestyle diseases management apps offer users individualized exercise plans by leveraging machine learning, augmented realityartificial intelligence, and other advanced technologies. They also provide customized health and fitness plans with assigned trainers, no-equipment workout programs, step tracking, diet monitoring, and customizable diet charts. Therefore, the demand for lifestyle management apps is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to their advantages over physical exercise and bodybuilding. Gymnotize Fitness Workout App, a training app, uses augmented reality to display the right method of lifting weights. Additionally, it offers users to monitor their count of repetitions, organize workouts as per their comfort, and graphs to analyze their own fitness process.

Platform Type Insights

The android segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 50.0% in 2021 owing to its widespread adoption, the convenience of usage, and affordability. The android segment is also expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. In Asia, a significant population of over 320 million people lives in abject poverty. Hence, the adoption of android apps is more than iOS apps. The availability of affordable smartphones is one of the key factors responsible for the higher penetration of Android-based mobile apps. Some of the lifestyle diseases apps accessible on android operating systems include MyFitnessPal, Sleep Cycle, Headspace, and Lose It, among many others.

The growth of the android segment is followed by the iOS segment. The iOS segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 14.3% over the forecast period. The development process of iOS apps is moderately faster and less expensive compared to android. Some of the apps available on iOS are Hello Heart, PlateJoy, RunKeeper, Strava, Fitbod, and Fitocracy.

Device Insights

The smartphone segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 50.0% in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Due to the evolving technology in the fitness industry, a large number of individuals prefer to use smartphones instead of joining gyms and fitness clubs to enhance their workout routines. Virtual programs offer fitness at a cheaper rate than gym memberships. Hence, the rising usage of smartphones for fitness purposes is further expected to support market growth.

The wearables segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 14.3% from 2022 to 2030. Companies such as Apple and Gramin have launched a range of fitness trackers to enhance the adoption of wearables. For instance, in January 2019, Google acquired ownership rights from Fossil for USD 40 million. According to the vice president of product management, Wear OS by Google, the acquisition of technology by Fossil Group and team to Google illustrates the approach to the wearables market by supporting a varied array of smartwatches and supporting the dynamic demand of vitality-seeking, active customers. In November 2019, Google parent Alphabet confirmed that it would acquire Fitbit for USD 2.2 billion. According to Google, the acquisition would make health and fitness more accessible to many individuals. The combination of Fitbit’s technology with Google’s AI feature increases wearable competitiveness and improves the next generation of gadgets at an affordable price.

Indication Insights

The installed lifestyle diseases apps can be used for tracking fitness goals, listing workout exercises, and monitoring the calories consumed, among others. These apps track the workouts, monitor calorie intake, and guide individuals with personal trainers. For instance, Leap Fitness Group provides a range of apps where exercises are planned for major muscle groups, which can be done without any equipment or trainer.

Around 56% of citizens in the U.S. sought help for mental health issues. Hence, there is a significant demand for efficient and effective mental health management systems.

The adoption of digital health is a key factor fueling the growth of fitness management apps in North America. According to an article published by Freeletics in July 2020, around 74% of U.S. citizens used a minimum of one fitness app during the COVID-19 period out of which 41% of the population was using it for the first time.
