The corporate wellness market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.51% during the forecast period, with a revenue of approximately USD 56,997 million in 2020 and expected to reach USD 83,214 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, as one of 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, a 74% of employees said that 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're 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 that are driving the market growth include growing prevalence and early onset of chronic diseases and reduction in employee healthcare costs. In today's work culture, the majority of 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 as well. 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, a number that 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 was an increase of 61.7% from 2018, as per the organization's report in 2019.
As a result, many chronic diseases are on a rise, however, these diseases are preventable and 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 not only benefit the employees' health, but also 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 increase.
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 are creating 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, there were increasing concerns about mental health and stress that 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 the feeling of isolation. In a survey from June 2020, 13% of adults have reported new or increased substance use due to coronavirus-related stress, and 11% of adults reported thoughts of suicide in the past 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.

The various employers also offer classes (e.g., meditation/mindfulness, time management, stress management, etc.), counselling, or 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 the behavioral/mental health management, in turn, leading to the growth of the concerned segment of the market.
