The industry is in the process of switching lanes amid a period of long-term decline. Reduced disposable incomes during the recession further crippled bowling center operators and led many consumers to cut location-based entertainment like bowling out of their budgets. Revenue will continue to slide during the next five years, though at a slower rate as more firms diversify and bring in a wider range of customers. Firms that emphasize the social aspects of taking a trip to bowling centers with friends and family will have the most success combating the draw of digital and in-home entertainment.
Operators in this industry primarily operate bowling centers. Establishments also often sell food and beverages.
