Bowling Centers in the US
The Bowling Centers industry is switching lanes: Over the five years to 2017, industry revenue is expected to have recovered slightly, in line with rising disposable income levels, as operators have continued to diversify their offerings to appeal to new customers. To attract a growing market of casual bowlers, bowling centers have increasingly become multi-use facilities that include a variety of other recreational activities, from laser tag to high-end restaurants, following years of declining demand and revenue earnings. While external competition from at-home entertainment options, such as video games, has increased, shifting downstream markets and slowly evolving service offerings indicate that opportunities exist for operators willing to shake up the traditional business model. However, industry revenue is expected to only rise marginally over the five years to 2022, as competing sources of entertainment will continue to siphon consumer entertainment budgets. Companies that strive to diversify their service offerings will temper the industry's decline.
Operators in this industry primarily operate bowling centers. Establishments also often sell food and beverages.
