The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation continues to build upon its library of respected research in the industry with the release of the 2017 ISPA U.S. Spa Industry Study. PwC was commissioned by the ISPA Foundation to conduct the study.
"Our annual spa industry study has shown sustained growth in several key areas each of the past six years," said ISPA President Lynne McNees. "The growth in the spa community has also led to a wealth of job opportunities for those seeking a fulfilling career path or transition."
The annual study highlights the record-breaking revenue of 16.8 billion USD and all indicators point to continued growth. Nearly 33,000 vacant positions were available in the industry at the time of the study with 61 percent of spas actively trying to fill positions.
