If you have not yet figured out a way to appeal to the growing global wellness movement, you had better start. It could mean a big boost to your business. A couple of days ago, the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) released research showing that the global wellness industry recently grew 10.6 percent, from a $3.36 trillion market in 2013 to $3.72 trillion in 2015. One of the 10 wellness markets analyzed was Wellness Tourism. It was the fourth fastest growing wellness market and grew 14 percent from 2013 to 2015. Other wellness markets include Preventative/Personalized Medicine & Public Health, Fitness & Mind-Body, etc. “Recent years have been marked by global economic contraction and disruptive geopolitical events, but a ‘wellness economy’ just keeps rising, with an upward trajectory that seems unstoppable,” said Ophelia Yeung, Senior Research Fellow, GWI.
