Why Swimming Pool Franchises Will Be a Summer Success

swimming pool franchise

As summer 2021 approaches, the days will become warmer, longer, and people will be eager to get outside. With summer heat and summer vacation comes the pool season, which begs the question – will swimming pool franchises make a splash this summer during the pandemic? 


A recent study during COVID-19 from BusinessWire and Technavio found that the swimming pool industry is projected to grow by $3.56 billion between 2020-2024, progressing at a CAGR of over 2% with accounting for the impact of the coronavirus. One of the key market drivers attributed to the projection is a forecasted boom in the leisure industry. Some families who don’t feel safe traveling will stay home at their own (newly installed) pools, while others who feel comfortable getting out of the house will look for safe family activities like swimming for summer relaxation 


Nearly a year since the start of the pandemic, we now have extensive knowledge of how the virus transmits and which environments constitute the most risk. And according to the CDC, no evidence has been found to conclude that the coronavirus can spread through recreational waters. With proper chemical treatment, social distancing, keeping activity outdoors and following standard CDC protocols, swimming pools should be a safe, fun environment for everyone. Check out these swimming pool franchises projected for growth in 2021.
