GSWS report to include first ever research on the global hot springs market

by Helen Andrews | 16 Jul 2014

The Global Spa & Wellness Summit (GSWS) has announced that its centrepiece

research initiative – to be released at its 2014 conference in Morocco – will provide fresh data on three critical global industry sectors.

The “Global Spa and Wellness Economy” research – undertaken by GSWS’ long-time research partner SRI International – will focus on the wider wellness industry, the spa industry and finally the wellness tourism market.

The wider wellness industry section of the report will provide information on the individual market clusters in the sector including stats on fitness-mind and body, nutrition and weight loss, alternative medicine, corporate wellness plus beauty and anti-ageing.

Global and regional spa industry statistics will be included in the study, including information about spa revenues, total spa industry employment figures, the economic impact of employment choices, benchmarking of key spa industry genres – for example spa-related hospitality or beauty segments – in addition to the first-ever research on new sub-segments such as the global hot springs market.

Data on relevant wider tourism industry activity – both globally and regionally – will be found within the report, such as revenues and trips.

“So many private and public industry stakeholders have told me how invaluable the GSWS-SRI data on the spa, wellness and wellness tourism markets has been in shaping their development strategies and in raising their profile with both investors and consumers,” said Susie Ellis, chair and CEO of GSWS.

2014’s eleven industry sponsors are underwriting the research: Spafinder Wellness Inc, Delos LLC, Massage Envy, Mindbody, Natura Bisse, Biologique Recherche, Bon Vital’, ESPA, Jhana, Noel Asmar and WTS International.
