While the industry experienced a sharp downturn during the recession, the economic recovery will benefit revenue. With consumer spending on the rise, individuals will be more likely to use their income for discretionary purchases like gambling. The industry's chief competitors will continue to be casino hotels and Native American casinos. Still, the industry will experience positive growth as a result of the improving economy and rising tourism.
This industry consists of gambling facilities that offer table wagering games and other gambling activities, such as slot machines and sports betting. These establishments often provide food and beverage services. The industry also includes floating casinos (i.e. gambling cruises and riverboat casinos). Native American casinos (IBISWorld report 71329) and casinos that operate in conjunction with a hotel (IBISWorld report 72112) are not included in this industry.
