  6. 6. Historical Background
  7. 7. Introduction India is currently enjoying a surge in the wellness industry, with international visitors attracted by quality and affordable medical tourism, and the alluring traditions and benefits of Ayurveda and yoga With the rising uptake of domestic low-cost airlines and the middle class‟ growing appetite for consumerism, the domestic demand for wellness and spa activities is expected to expand in the coming years.
  8. 8. Defining Wellness • The American Heritage Medical Dictionary terms „wellness‟ as a „condition of good physical, mental and emotional health, especially when maintained by an appropriate diet, exercise and other lifestyle modifications.‟ • In India, traditional medicine and preventive practices have always stressed on „a healthy mind in a healthy body‟. Accordingly, Indian traditional practices of ayurveda, yoga and meditation were aligned to deliver physical and internal wellbeing, mental peace and happiness.
  9. 9. Wellness comprises the following five segments• Beauty services and cosmetic products • Fitness and cosmetic products • Nutrition • Alternate therapy • Rejuvenation Spas
  10. 10. The Wellness Eco System The wellness industry in India has evolved rapidly from its nascent unstructured beginning in the early 90s to a comprehensive ecosystem today including consumers, providers, adjacent industries, facilitators and Government. • Consumers mainly comprise a young population with rising income levels • Providers offer wellness services and products to meet the hygiene, curative and enhancement needs of the consumer • Adjacent industries such as healthcare, media, retail, gaming, hospitality and education are capitalizing on the growth of the wellness sector to generate additional revenue streams, leverage existing competencies and offer a wider array of services/products to customers
  11. 11. • Facilitators include employers, insurance companies and schools, who are likely to play a key role in encouraging and inculcating pro-wellness habits among consumers going forward •The Government wears multiple hats in its roles as a provider, facilitator, enabler and regulator in the industry
  12. 12. Consumers of the Wellness Industry • The young population in India is the core target group • India‟s growing middle class
  13. 13. • Increase in discretionary spends is positive for the industry • Growing number of lifestyle diseases makes wellness relevant today
  14. 14. SPAS • The ancient concept of spa revolved around the therapeutic powers of water fortified with the powers of minerals • Mineral springs in ancient times were renowned for their therapeutic values ,especially in Rome where hundreds of roman baths did double duty as bath houses and health centres • Over the time, resorts and accommodation mushroomed around these springs where people congregated • Where there were no natural springs, canny entrepreneurs built mind-body rejuvenation centres and fitted them with modern gadgets • In the modern day spa, people can detox, distress and rejuvenate themselves without bothering to leave town.
  15. 15. Activity Segmentation
  16. 16. The industry has attracted a number of domestic entrants and international players. Established players are pursuing revenue maximisation through product and service diversification. They are also exploring newer geographies. Franchising is emerging as a popular option for scaling up. Micro segmentation to develop better targeted value propositions for consumers and commercialisation of traditional Indian home remedies are other emerging trends in this industry Industry Trends
  17. 17. Key Trends
  18. 18. Competition in the Indian Spa Industry: • The Indian spa industry is highly fragmented with spas across the country. • As of now, around 70 per cent of the spa business is run by local brands, while the rest is taken over by international spa firms • The industry is expected to witness exponential growth in the times to come and many domestic and international are setting up expansion plans • International brands like MSpa international from Thailand, Aman resorts from Singapore and express spa from us are establishing a presence and planning to scale up
  19. 19. Findings and observations
  20. 20. The main problems are as follows: Lack of Standards – there are no organisations currently. Lack of Accredited Training Institutes. Lack of Accredited Spa‟s. Lack of Uniformity in Traditional Treatments - Every Spa one visits in India do the Traditional Treatments differently, simple therapy like Ayurvedic Massage is done in different manner in different places, for example, Shirodhara is done at any time of the day, where as it is strictly contra indicated in the afternoons. No Association to Address Issues & Grievances of the Industry. Lack of Government support in promotion of industry except in few cases. Lack of Awareness in all strata‟s of the society.
  21. 21. Shady places working under the name of Massage joints giving a bad name to the profession & Industry. People not choosing the Spa Industry as a profession as they would choose any other off course due to the bad name acquired by the Industry due to wrong doings by few. Non-sharing, discreet & Orthodox attitude of some Ayurvedic Practitioners not wanting Ayurveda to be used in Spa Industry. Many Practitioners looking at Ayurveda as a Therapeutic Modality rather than Lifestyle Management Modality. The Indian spa industry, which is growing at around 20-30 per cent annually due to increased affluence of people and lifestyle related ailments, is still unregulated and lacks trained therapists. India needs 20,000 trained therapists and there are over 2300 spas, and there are only 1000 trained therapists in India. Use of Non-Standardized products.
  22. 22. The new spa trends that will drive the Indian market are: • Medical Tourism – The Truth of an Affordable Health Destination Medical wellness and cosmetic med spas is a booming business as it fills certain critical gaps in the traditional health care system. Spas tie in with medical tourism as part of the “postop” recuperative holiday. • Many hotel/resort spas will recognize the new opportunity that medical tourism presents and market themselves as ideal pre- and postoperation stays Analysis
  23. 23. Conclusion India‟s fast-evolving wellness world presents many opportunities for spa developers, owners and operators. The time is ripe to take advantage of the growing attraction of India as a centre of wellness and medical tourism for both domestic and international spa-goers, however these activities should not just be limited to Kerala or the Himalayas, but also in urban areas where day spas can be promoted as oases of peace and relaxation.
  24. 24. Thank You!
