Operators in the Life Coaches industry assist individuals with personal, relationship and business matters. Demand for their services grows when public confidence declines and people's ability to handle issues on their own falters. However, because industry services are discretionary, demand is subject to changes in the level of disposable income, which is typically lower during times of poor consumer confidence. Consequently, while consumers may be more interested in industry services during difficult economic times, they are typically less able to afford them. Over the five years to 2018, the industry has benefited from economic improvements. Over the five years to 2023, high-income households will continue to serve as the primary vehicle of growth for the Life Coaches industry. A slight dip in consumer confidence over the five-year period will heighten interest in life coaches, and an increase in per capita disposable income will enable consumers to better afford industry services.
