Spa revenue in the United States grew 4.5 percent to $13.4 billion at the end of 2011 from a year earlier, according to an International SPA Association 2012 U.S. Spa industry Study, conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“Against a background of slow recovery in consumer spending the spa industry has kept pace with modest growth in revenues and visits,” said Colin McIlheney, Global Research Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers. “Revenues are up by 4.5% year-on-year to $13.4 billion. Visits are also up 4.1% to 156 million. Prices have stayed stable. The evidence suggests a volume-driven recovery.”
Some of the strategies spas have implemented to drive demand include: increasing the number of treatment offerings, new retail product offerings, additional spa programs and shorter treatment options.
