The Ice Rinks industry has experienced strong growth over the five years to 2019. Demand for ice activities, which tend to be relatively more expensive than other forms of sports and exercise, has fared well during the period amid rising per capita disposable income and increased participation in sports. Despite its strong overall growth, industry operators have been forced to contend with other sports and forms of exercise competing for consumer leisure time. To combat increased competition, rising utility costs and constantly shifting consumer sport and leisure preferences, industry operators have been developing larger state-of-the-art facilities to spread high-fixed building and maintenance costs over a larger and more diversified customer base to maintain profitability.The industry is expected to continue growing over the five years to 2024, driven by improvements in disposable income, time spent on leisure and health awareness. Rising concern over childhood obesity rates and inactivity levels will also present industry operators with opportunities in the youth market.
