If there’s anything the past two years has taught us, it’s to put our wellbeing first. However, it goes well beyond self-care and fitness challenges. We’re recalibrating and expanding our definition of the term ‘wellbeing’ to encompass meaningful and purposeful living which stems to health management, corporate wellness, nourishing mental and spiritual health, happiness, connecting with community, balance and stability, and much more. So, what better way to kickstart 2022 than with a theme that is central to everyone (and the fact that it features a running theme from last month’s New Year’s resolution edition doesn’t hurt either)?
The global wellness market is estimated to double its growth annually, with wellness expenditure ($4.5 trillion) more than half as large as global health expenditure ($7.8 trillion), and the industry is growing nearly twice as fast as global economic growth. No, those 2x figures weren’t typos. In an increasingly crowded market with new players like wearable tech and heath apps contributing to its rapid growth, advertisers need to be more strategic about how and where they operate—including how they market their products and services to their audiences. Keep that ‘Gym and Fitness’ audience segment in your back pocket for now, and let’s explore some new audience segment that’s definitely not out of the textbook.
