The Rise of the Activity Sector

Release Date: 18 October 2016

Last year, ukactive embarked on an exciting project to provide a more accurate value of the UK physical activity sector for our members, stakeholders and partners.

To achieve this goal, we launched a research project in partnership with leading international advisory and accountancy firm Mazars, and Nielsen Sports (formerly Repucom), an expert provider of analytics and insights within the sports industry.

The resultant report - The Rise of the Activity Sector: An analysis of the growth in the physical activity sector and its future potential – launched at an evening networking event hosted at the London headquarters of leading financial services institution Legal and General, highlights the significant growth opportunities available to competitive organisations in our sector, as well as the qualities and criteria investors look for when considering whether to invest in a company or project. This report, which was shaped with the help and support of ukactive’s members, includes a number of case studies from public and private gym operators, fitness equipment suppliers, public bodies and franchisors, all of which demonstrate why this sector is one to be celebrated.

Significantly, The Rise of the Activity Sector cites a total financial and brand sponsorship valuation of £6.6bn in 2015 and an estimated forecast of £7.7bn for 2016, based solely on private and public health and fitness operators.
