With the latest Global Wellness Institute research revealing the global wellness economy is worth $5.6 trillion, and set to hit a record $8.5 trillion by 2027, this year promises to be a positive one for the spa industry.

The development pipeline for spas openings across Europe is buoyant and, despite post-pandemic challenges, the wellness economy has experienced a growth surge since 2020. As consumers, governments and the medical world continue to place greater emphasis on preventative health, spa and wellness is set to boom in 2024.

The Global Wellness Economy 2023 report predicted that wellness real estate is set to grow by 17.4% annually, while wellness tourism sits at 16.6% annual growth and thermal/mineral springs are set to grow by 14.3% annually.

This translates into more than 30 new spa opening predicted during 2024.
