Health and Beauty Spa Industry: Total revenue in the South African health and beauty spa industry is estimated to have reached R1.54bn in 2016. The industry employed approximately 5,500 people and there are more than 700 spa facilities in the country. South African Spa Association (SASA) statistics reveal that many spas are linked to hotels and resorts and that more than 80% of spas are locally-owned.

Lower than Expected Growth:
Industry growth rates for 2015 and 2016 were lower than predicted by the South African Spa Benchmark Report undertaken in 2014. This was in part due to general adverse economic conditions as well as a drop in government spending on conferences and fewer foreign tourists following government’s introduction of stricter visa requirements. Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s (S&P) both downgraded South Africa’s foreign currency debt to non-investment grade (BB+), also termed junk status, which could hamper the industry in 2017.

Niche Markets and Opportunities:

The use of technology is on the rise with laser treatments, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and face-mapping machines that analyse skin becoming more commonplace. The sector is increasingly targeting the ageing population as well as men, children and teenagers. African safari spas have become popular as have mobile spas that bring a spa experience to corporate events or to bedridden clients in the home.

Report Coverage:
The Health and Beauty Spa Industry report describes current conditions, challenges faced by role players as well as factors that influence the success of the sector. The report profiles 26 companies, including franchise operations, Camelot Spa and Sorbet Beauty Salons, as well as national chains such as the Mangwanani group, Amani Spas, Africology and Spas of Distinction. Also profiled is the spa at The One and Only Cape Town, which was voted Best Resort Spa in 2016.
