In 2013, the market size of the global wellness industry amounted to more than 3.4 trillion U.S. dollars. The beauty and anti-aging segment was by far the largest, constituting around a third. The various segments making up the wellness industry are diverse and include, among others, healthy eating and weight loss, fitness, alternative medicine and the spa industry.
