Market Overview

The corporate wellness market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.92% during the forecast period, with a revenue of approximately USD 52,703.51 million in 2020. It is expected to reach USD 72,728.72 million by 2026.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, it was found that people with chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and heart disease, are among the most at-risk groups of COVID-19 infection and complications. This has increased health consciousness and pushed many people to pay closer attention to their health. According to the recent study, Polarised perceptions of corporate and wellness, 74% of employees said poor mental health had affected their productivity since the COVID-19 outbreak began. This highlights the need for effective health and wellness activities in the workplace. Therefore the integration of wellness programs in the workplace has become a bigger priority to make employees feel like they are still connected while working at home. Employers have thus modified their wellness offerings to offer more proactive initiatives, including on-site fitness classes, gym memberships, exercise breaks, tobacco cessation programs, and food wellness programs.

Certain factors driving the market growth include growing prevalence and early onset of chronic diseases and reduction in employee healthcare costs. In today's work culture, most people do not have enough time to do some activities after work or during their free time, which is causing them to have health problems.

Chronic diseases pose a great threat globally, as the incidence of many of these illnesses is increasing. Obesity is one of the chronic diseases that has burdened many countries globally due to an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle, including many developed countries. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are also rising globally. As per a 2018 report by the American Heart Association, CVDs were the leading global cause of death, which accounted for more than 17.9 million deaths per year in 2015, which is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030. Cancer is another chronic illness that has increased over the years. Cancer Research UK suggests that if recent trends in the incidence of major cancers and population growth are consistent, it is predicted that there will be 27.5 million new cancer cases worldwide each year by 2040. This estimate increased 61.7% from 2018, as per the organization's report in 2019.

As a result, many chronic diseases are on the rise. However, these diseases are preventable. Therefore, executing a holistic approach to corporate wellness programs is currently on-demand to educate employees on the importance of creating healthy habits and the benefits of sticking to wellness goals.

Wellness programs benefit the employees' health and reduce absenteeism and lead to more energized productive employees, and therefore greater productivity for the firm. As a result, it helps people to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. This benefit is expected to help corporate employees reduce the risk of illnesses. Hence, the demand for these plans is also expected to increase as the incidence of chronic diseases increases.

Key Market Trends

Stress Management Shows Lucrative Growth Opportunity in the Global Corporate Wellness Market

The high prevalence of extended work hours, heavy workload, and work pressure-related issues create physical and mental repercussions, such as hypertension, heart attacks, and a feeling of instability among the employees. With the rising competition, the employees work under a lot of pressure and excessive demands. Hence, stress disturbs the equilibrium of work-life balance for the employees.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing concerns about mental health and stress have grown, including concerns about suicidal ideation. The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the mental health of employees. After its onset, it led to the work from home transition, which resulted in a great deal of stress among employees due to isolation. In a survey from June 2020, 13% of adults reported new or increased substance use due to coronavirus-related stress, and 11% of adults reported thoughts of suicide in the previous 30 days. Suicidal cases have long been on the rise and may worsen during the pandemic. Therefore to tackle the problem, wellness service providers were found adopting virtual methods to provide services such as meetings with psychologists and health coaches.

According to the American Institute of Stress, an alarming 94% of the American workforce experienced workplace stress in 2019. Therefore, stress management programs are anticipated to be a crucial part of employee management processes in the coming years. The incorporation of anti-stress programs, such as yoga, therapy, EAPs, social activities, childcare initiatives, provision of work from home, flexible timings, and mindfulness training, is augmenting the growth of the corporate wellness market.

The various employers also offer classes (e.g., meditation/mindfulness, time management, stress management, etc.), counseling, perks, and on-site amenities (e.g., nap pods, quiet rooms, free massages, sick rooms, games/activities). Therefore, all these activities help in removing the stress of the employees.

Hence, the increased depression and stress enhanced the requirement of behavioral/mental health management, leading to the growth of the concerned segment of the market.

Corporate Wellness Market Trends

North America Dominates the Global Corporate Wellness Market During the Forecast Period

In the North American region, the United States accounted for the largest market share as stress is a leading health concern that affects the US population.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has infused high stimulus into the corporate wellness market. The workforce population largely affected by one or more chronic diseases or other comorbidities warranted supporting their health and well-being. It set high expectations from employers, driving companies to proactively manage population health with their programs. From helping employees adjust to the new normal and be nimble to reducing health risks, employers are focused on preventively and proactively managing the same. This is expected to increase access to wellness and expand or improve the quality of already existing programs.

As per Gallup’s 2019 data on emotional states, over half of the American population experienced stress during the day, which was 20% higher than the world average of 35%.

As per the American Institute of Stress, 83% of US workers suffer from work-related stress. In 2019, 94% of US workers reported experiencing stress at their workplace. Around 23% of people describe their stress levels as high, while 6% state that their stress levels are unreasonably high. In addition, in 2019, 80% of workers in the United States were stressed due to ineffective company communication.

Moreover, every year in the United States, work-related stress causes 120,000 deaths and results in USD 190 billion in healthcare costs. At the same time, US businesses lose up to USD 300 billion yearly due to workplace stress. Both the human and financial costs of stress are enormous. The cost of stress in the workplace also drains the US budget, which represents between 5% and 8% of the total national healthcare spending.

Gap Healthcare Group Inc., a company in Canada, offers Group Wellness Workshop as a 1-hour session and delivers a presentation on certain lifestyle topics, such as smoking cessation or stress management. It focuses on promoting a healthy lifestyle to employees by using universal learning principles, case studies, and best practices to provide practical information, tools, and resources to support employees’ health.

Hence, a large section of the population in the United States is involved in work-related stress, which is anticipated to drive the corporate wellness market during the forecast period.
