"Many lucrative niche markets exist, if you know where to look."

August 11,  2015:   Marketdata Enterprises, Inc., a leading independent market research publisher of “off-the-shelf” studies about service industries since 1979, has published a new 74-page report about six service sectors with major opportunities, in need of investment capital.
There are many untapped niche markets that exist, especially in the service and healthcare sectors. Either it’s an emerging or nascent market that hasn’t yet been discovered, or is too small to be considered by large companies. Yet, they can be very profitable and may have huge potential for growth.
This is a completely new Marketdata report.  The following six sectors below are covered, in terms of the void in the market, why demand exists, the proposed concept or service, background about the market’s dollar potential, scalability, competition, potential end-user demand, estimated start-up costs, franchising potential, and a comprehensive list of resources for follow-up.

  • A medical weight loss chain built upon the Preventative Health Care Benefit of the Affordable Care Act (obesity screening & counseling service)
  • Training/consulting company for MDs and other healthcare professionals that want to add a medical weight loss program to their practice.
  • A 24 hr. weight loss cable TV channel
  • A Self-improvement annual exposition and conference
  • A 24 hr. self-improvement TV channel
  • Medical foods market annual conference & trade association. 

Marketdata’s focus for 36 years has been on service and healthcare sectors and niche, emerging markets. The company has identified six such opportunities currently, worthy of venture capital funding. This study contains detailed “opportunity reports” for each venture, describing the concept, demand, estimated start-up costs, market potential, and strategy for each. Independent investors, venture capital and private equity firms will find, via this report, opportunities to: 1) fill major voids in the market, 2) build new companies from scratch, and 3) to roll up and consolidate existing players for an eventual IPO.
“Frequently, we find during our research that there are voids in the market, or untapped niches. Sometimes huge markets have no trade association, trade journal, or annual expo/convention, for example.”, according to Research Director, John LaRosa.
Major Report Findings:
  • “Medical foods” is an emerging $1.3 billion market in the U.S., and the market has no trade association or annual conference. Future growth to 2020 is estimated at an average annual rate of 6.5% per year, but could grow much faster if the category gets more exposure, greater insurance reimbursement, and the producers can collect solid outcome data.
  • Medical weight loss programs...As more physicians, dieticians, physicians’ assistants and nurse practitioners add weight loss programs to their practices, to take advantage of the ACA’s obesity screening and counseling benefit, the need for business training and consulting services to set up these programs could well be worth hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Yet, very few of these business consultants exist or are qualified.
  • The $9.6 billion U.S. market for self-improvement products and programs is huge, but fragmented. Again, there is no industry trade association or annual conference, for the public or the businesses that compete in it. This represents a major opportunity and market void screaming to be filled.
  • ​Two major opportunities exist for new cable TV channels: a weight loss channel and a self-improvement channel. Neither exists, but why?  Weight loss is a $65 billion industry with hundreds of competitors, 108 million dieters, gurus, experts and content providers (medical, retail and commercial). In self-improvement, again, hundreds of gurus, unlimited content, celebrities and entrepreneurs—ample material for decades for interesting interviews and exposes. There are some small scale Internet-based video channels, but no 24 hr. cable TV channels. With 500+ cable channels on virtually every topic, it’s hard to understand why weight loss and self-improvement are not represented.
