IHRSA reports Health Club Membership to reach 230 million members by 2030
According to the newly released 2019 International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) Global Report, the fitness industry is set to reach 230 million members by 2030.
The IHRSA Global Report provides a comprehensive overview of the health club industry and states that global health club industry revenue totalled US$94 billion in 2018, as more than 210,000 clubs served 183 million members.
Introducing the findings, Jay Ablondi, IHRSA’s Executive Vice President of Global Products, stated "the IHRSA Global Report details performance indicators for 65 markets worldwide.
“Around the globe, the fitness industry continues to help consumers lead healthier lives as steady growth was recorded in key markets. The industry is on pace with IHRSA’s global initiative, announced last year, to reach 230 million health club members worldwide by 2030.”
The top 10 markets around the world account for more than two out of three health club members and 71% of total industry revenue. While the USA leads all markets in memberships and revenue at 62.5 million and US$32.3 billion respectively, Germany was second in both metrics with 11.1 million members and US$6.3 billion. The UK was third in the number of members and revenue at 9.9 million and US$6.2 billion, respectively.
Health club performance is also increasingly strong in the global economic powers of India and China. Based on data gathered in The IHRSA Greater China Report, the combined revenue from the top 10 cities ranks that region fourth among all global markets at US$3.9 billion in annual revenue, while the number of club members ranks it ninth in the world at 4.5 million.
The IHRSA Indian Health Club Report ranks that country fifth in market size among Asia-Pacific health club markets at US$821 million in annual revenue. The number of health club locations puts it third in the region at 3,813 sites, while the country’s two million members rank it fifth among observed markets in the region. Opportunities for growth remain in both markets as well as the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. The member penetration rates for China and India are 2.98% and 0.15%, respectively.
The new report is divided into four parts:
• The Industry Overview section details the industry's performance in 2018, along with analysis and insights from industry experts and leading club operators.
• The Industry Research section includes data on revenue, number of facilities, and number of club members for 65 global markets. New this year are updated statistics for 14 Asia-Pacific markets and 20 European markets. For the U.S. market, there is a breakdown of data for the number of health clubs by state and infographic insights for consumer growth and member visits.
• The Company Profiles section highlights more than 300 leading health club companies from around the world. New for 2019: profiled companies are organised by geographic region.
• The Supplier Profiles section features a variety of fitness industry suppliers, whose innovative products and services help club operators to be more profitable.
The 2019 IHRSA Global Report is available for US$74.95 for IHRSA members, and US$149.95 for non-members.
