In overall terms, entertainment and leisure has performed relatively well during the downturn compared with other sectors, with construction output values reaching around £5.7bn in 2013, a 14% rise on 2012. However, expansion and investment have been largely confined to the budget hotels, health and fitness and more recently the cinema segments, with less buoyant activity in mid-market hotels, pubs and the gaming sectors where major operators have reigned in capital spending plans.
The largest sector within the UK leisure industry in terms of revenue is the food service industry, worth £45bn in 2014, of which sales in the restaurant and fast food sector account for over 50%. The restaurant sector has experienced strong performance over recent years, driven by the growing trend towards consumers eating out more often. The second largest sector is pubs, clubs and bars sector, followed by sporting activities and the hotel sector.
After years of being constrained by capital budgets, hotels have now refocused portfolio investment through refits and refurbishment programmes to maximize occupancy levels rather than through new build properties – though the exception has been budget hotels where value chains continue to expand their portfolios through new development.
Hotel construction is expected to be one of the fastest-growing sectors in 2014 boosted over the next few years by competition between budget hotel chains. The UK hotel sector is seeing a number of new international brands securing key sites in London and a number of established brands developing and rolling out boutique brands.
A further trend emerging from the recession is the rise in popularity of the budget gym sector, where membership prices are around 50% cheaper than for traditional clubs. As in the hotel sector, the budget gym market is forecast to increase market share as consumers look to spend existing disposable income more wisely. Many budget operators have aggressive expansion plans for 2014 and beyond.
The betting and gaming sector has benefited from strong growth in online gambling in recent years, as well as the reduction in the rate of duty to 10% on bingo, which was announced in the 2014 budget. However, while revenues in the sector are forecast to grow, new construction and RMI expenditure within the sector could be negatively affected.
The restaurant sector has experienced a difficult trading environment over the past 5 years and the pub sector in particular has seen considerable restructuring. There has been a shift in emphasis from drinks-led to food-led across the pub sector. While spending has not reached pre-recessionary levels, consumers are returning to restaurants driven by fine dining and corporate entertainment, and refurbishment activity within the sector is largely driven by international businesses looking to expand in the UK.
The leisure and tourism industry is highly fragmented, with a number of large commercial chains dominating the hotel and pub sectors in particular and a large number of smaller specialist operators in the restaurant, gaming and hotel and lodging sectors.
Whilst the outlook for the hotel and leisure sector is now more positive, the implications for construction, fit-out and refurbishment work in the sector remains mixed with significant expansion plans announced by budget hotels, value gym, food-led pubs and cinema sectors contrasting with less buoyant prospects for mid-market hotels and the betting and gaming industry.
In 2014, the fortunes of the UK leisure market are expected to receive a boost from major sporting events such as the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, stages of the Tour de France in Yorkshire, Cambridge and London, the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, the World Cup and a number of NFL games in London, which could have a significant positive impact on both regional and London leisure market performance.
The outlook for entertainment work remains positive with annual output increases of 2-5% currently forecast to 2018. UK tourism spending is expected to continue to grow strongly to 2025, with inbound tourism the fastest growing sector with growth rates of 5-6% forecast. Much of this growth is being driven by higher consumer spending as the recovery from recession gathers pace and is becoming firmly established. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
