The Swimming Pool and Spa Equipment Stores industry is starting to emerge from troubled waters following the adverse effects of severe drought and stringent water restrictions over the past decade. However, turbulent economic conditions and subdued discretionary spending have depressed demand for the industry's products and, as a result, revenue is expected to fall by an annualised rate of 0.2% over the five years through 2014-15, to total $615.9 million.
Revenue grew strongly in 2009-10 as relaxed water restrictions encouraged many households to purchase swimming pools and spas.
Companies in this industry primarily sell above-ground and in-ground swimming pools and spas, swimming pool equipment, pool chemicals, cleaning and maintenance products and recreational items intended for swimming pool use.
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.
