Sports, Physical Education, Fitness & Leisure Industry in India

The demand for wellness is growing substantially in India. A FICCI-PwC report released in 2012 has estimated the size of the wellness industry at 70,000 crore in 2012 and projected it at 100,000 crore by 2015. The growing interest in yoga, meditation, running and gym, all reflect the trend.

The fitness industry is seeing "a revolution" as concerns about issues such as obesity and diabetes are leading people towards prevention rather than cure. Other than this the growing disposable income coupled with rising awareness of a healthy body is helping the Indian Fitness and Slimming Industry to grow at an exponential pace. Additionally, significant changes in lifestyle related to lack of physical activity and increased consumption of fast food among both affluent and working class population has led to greater need for healthy lifestyles.

The Indian fitness industry is in nascent stages of growth and the fitness and slimming industry has 8% (40 billion) of market share (in total Indian wellness Industry), of which slimming and fitness services account for 68% of market share. The industry is fairly fragmented since the majority of the market appears to be dominated by a large or small gyms. Organized fitness services account for merely 25% of the overall fitness industry.

Considering these figures, it is safe to say that the job demand for Manager, Health Club is surely there in the present time and will also be there in the future.
