The 2018 IHRSA Greater China Health Club Report
This 2018 report, produced in collaboration with Deloitte China, focuses on the health club industry in Greater China, including city-level insights and company profiles of leading clubs. Also included is an overview of Asia-Pacific health club markets.
The health club market in China is among the largest in world. On mainland China, the combined revenue from the top 10 cities ranks fourth among all global markets at US$3.9 (AU$5.54) billion in annual revenue (USD), while the number of club members ranks ninth in the world at 4.5 million.
Opportunities remain for the health club industry in China, with only 2.98% of the country belonging to a health club, one of the lowest penetration rates among developed countries.
Melissa Rodriguez, Senior Research Manager at IHRSA, Boston states “Along with Hong Kong, China’s top 10 cities are among the fastest growing and most mature fitness markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The IHRSA Greater China Health Club Report is an essential resource to better understand the size and scope of the fitness industry as well as opportunities for growth.”
