Increasing competition from substitutes, such as home consoles and online and mobile gaming systems, has hurt the Arcade, Food and Entertainment Complexes industry. As a result, revenue is expected to increase only slightly in the five years to 2015. To combat the slow growth and rising competition, industry operators will adopt the strategies of successful restaurant-arcades and focus on food and beverage sales.
This industry includes businesses that primarily operate video game arcades and game-focused family entertainment centers, which typically sell food and beverages. Industry operators rent or purchase debit card- or coin-operated arcade games that customers play for a fee. Establishments that primarily focus on gambling games, billiards, miniature golf and other larger-scale or outdoor amusements are not included in this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
