Leisure Venue Catering - UK - March 2009
The leisure venue catering market is facing a period of uncertainty, with the impact of the global recession still to fully unfold, as consumers and operators rein in their expenditure in reaction to it.
The past five years have seen steady growth in leisure venue catering revenues, although they have not kept pace with growth in the overall eating out market, or total revenues of all leisure venues. Much of this is attributable to the poor performance of the nightclubs market, which makes up more than half of industry revenues. In contrast, sectors such as cinema, historic buildings, museums and art galleries, bingo and tenpin have seen strong growth. However, for many sectors 2008 saw a slowing or flattening off in revenues, indicative of tougher trading times to come in 2009 and beyond.
This report looks at the factors that have been driving the market during the past five years, those that will influence it in the future and examines the current status of the industry. It also provides forecasts for the development of sales during the next five years and considers the hypothesis ‘affordable luxury or surplus to requirements: as consumers have to rein in their spending, will leisure venue catering be the first to be cut?’ Mintel last examined this subject in Leisure Venue Catering – UK, March 2007.
