The Amusement Parks industry has grown strongly over the past five years, driven by a rise in international and domestic visitor numbers and rising consumer spending. Although the industry is highly competitive, the major amusement park operators have used their intellectual property rights to major film franchises and entertainment to their advantage. In recent years, operators of many of the major amusement parks have employed this tactic to propel revenue and increase profit margins. The industry is dominated by a small number of massive entertainment companies. These companies have pursued both domestic and international expansion opportunities, including China and the Middle East. Domestic opportunities still exist, especially for the industry's largest players; however, growth over the next five years is expected to be subdued compared with the previous period.
Amusement and theme park companies operate mechanical rides, water rides, games, shows, themed exhibits, refreshment stands and other attractions. Establishments may also lease space on a contract basis.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
