India demonstrates all the demographic advantages of an ideal market for leading international spa and wellness brands. This is one of the many findings in a fascinating new market report on India released by Horwath HTL, Health and Wellness. Horwath HTL, Health and Wellness, led by industry veteran Ingo Schweder, are the new addition to Horwath HTL, the worlds largest and most experienced hospitality consultants.

The report, written to coincide with the 2013 Global Spa and Wellness Summit being held in New Delhi on the 5-7th of October, looks at the key components of this vibrant market.

The idea of ‘wellness’ has become increasingly ingrained in conventional notions of what constitutes a healthy lifestyle, complementing existing scientific and medical approaches to health. Thus, the global spa industry has responded by innovating a broad spectrum of offerings that can fulfill increasingly
savvy consumer demands. In India, the concept of ‘wellness’ has been interwoven into various aspects
of local culture through the traditions and practice
of Ayurveda and yoga, which originated in the foothills of the Himalayas.”

The report covers:

  • Consumer Trends
  • India’s opportunity
  • Hotel Spas
  • Destination Spas
  • Challenges
