Two significant factors combined to drive down revenue for the Paintball Fields industry over the past five years: consistently falling interest in the sport of paintball and falling disposable incomes due to the recession. With fewer people willing to spend money on the sport, many fields closed up shop.

Hope remains in the serious paintball market; operators able to host tournaments will likely outperform the overall industry and retain some stability.
This industry includes establishments that provide recreational paintball and other amusement services. Paintball is a sport in which players compete, either in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by hitting them with gelatin capsules containing water soluble dye (i.e. paintballs) propelled from paintball guns.
