The Leisure Outlook - UK - June 2019
What you need to know
The number of people who would prioritise leisure activities such as eating out, going out for drinks or taking part in hobbies has remained relatively stable since mid-2017. This is not a bad result considering cut backs seen elsewhere, particularly in product-dominated sectors. Fewer people appear to be prioritising investment in products for their home or themselves (eg kitchenware, entertainment and beauty products).
Whilst leisure remains a relative priority for most consumers, the proportion of adults who say they have recently gone out for an expensive meal, or gone to a concert/sporting event/the theatre has remained flat in recent years.
Established leisure operators face increased competition from new and emerging sectors, which will force traditional venues to enhance the quality or value of their existing offer, or branch out in to new areas in order to retain appeal.
“The Easter heatwave provided a boost to the pub sector as more people headed out for food and drinks in casual, outdoor settings. However young people showed a desire to strike a balance between health and indulgence, as many kept up regular exercise routines.”
– Paul Davies, Category Director – Leisure, Travel, Foodservice and B2B
