The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) has released new data on the US’ wellness economy, valuing it at US$1.8 trillion.

According to the organisation's recent report – called The Global Wellness Economy: United States – the US is the world’s leading wellness economy and is now double the size of China’s market, worth US$790 billion.

The US has solidified its position as the leader in nine out of the 11 wellness sectors measured by the GWI within the expansive US$5.6 trillion global wellness economy.

The Spa category boasts a substantial portion, accounting for US$25.9 billion of the US wellness market.

The 2024 report is now available on GWI’s Geography of Wellness platform following a partnership with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), an organisation dedicated to evidence-based education and certification for fitness and wellness professionals.

NASM’s sponsorship provided GWI with the resources to research all 11 sectors that comprise the country’s wellness economy.

“By making this information available to all, NASM is playing a crucial role in getting GWI’s detailed analysis into the hands of investors, academics, business leaders and government agencies looking to analyse and understand this innovative, world-leading wellness market and the opportunities that lie ahead,” said Susie Ellis, GWI chair and CEO.
