According to the most recent report published by Allied Market Research, the global spa services market is forecast to reach an incredible $154.6 billion by 2022.
Far from being a rare indulgence for the affluent, wellbeing has increasingly become a part of everyday life for many around the world with a marked rise in demand for medical spa treatments a key driver of this shift.
The report explains that other factors driving the spa services market include increasingly hectic modern day lifestyles, rising wellness tourism, demand from teenagers and improving standards of living. An increase in the population of working women and the rising popularity of spas amongst male customers also add to the demand.
With all these factors in mind, it seems clear that spa and wellbeing services will become an even bigger industry in the near future – and a great selling point for properties.
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director at Spanish developer Taylor Wimpey España, has observed the popularity of holiday homes with spa facilities rising. He comments,
“From speaking with potential buyers seeking their ideal holiday home, it’s becoming increasingly common that developments with spa facilities sway their decision to buy. With 21st century living becoming gradually more stressful, it seems that more and more people are opting to spend their free time in the most relaxing and tranquil environment possible.
“Holiday homes with spa facilities are a luxury that owners are thoroughly enjoying and paying a premium to purchase.”
