Australians' love of sport is long-lived and well documented. In terms of attendance at major sporting events and winning Olympic medals, the country regularly ranks, per capita, among the most prominent in the world. However, when it comes to spending money on healthy activities, it is the nation's growing obsession with weight loss that is driving growth in an industry that covers gyms and health clubs, as well as sporting venues. Revenue from health and fitness centres and gyms is expected to have grown by 13% annually over the past five years, with an estimated 1.8 million Australians now members of gyms and health clubs.
This industry includes companies or organisations that operate indoor and outdoor sports or exercise facilities, except for those used for horse or dog racing.
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.
