Market Segments

The worldwide bowling center industry is expected to generate revenue in the region of $11 billion by 2015, according to research form Global Industry Analysts.

As the global economy recovers, a period of enormous popularity is forecast to fuel the industry. As employment levels rise along with consumer confidence and disposable income, people will more readily invest in leisure activities like bowling. Another factor positively affecting the global bowling industry is a shift toward family activities and traditional values. An expanding rang of entertainment alternatives and technological innovation will equally drive market growth over the coming years. Bowling outfits are focusing their marketing efforts on neighborhood family entertainment, improving their facilities and adding complementary activities.
