Instances of health problems and mental illnesses are increasing due to improper work-life balance. Consequently, people are becoming more aware of the importance of exercise and fitness, increasing the construction of gyms and swimming pools. For example, in 2019, roughly 2,000 gyms/health clubs and 750 swimming pools opened in the US. Swimming pools improve cardiovascular strength and physical health. They also reduce anxiety and depression and uplift mood. These health benefits are expected to boost the growth of the swimming pool construction market.
The tourism business has grown swiftly, increasing the demand for hotel accommodations. Consequently, key market players are focusing on improving hotels' aesthetic appeal by investing in swimming pools to attract more travelers. Tourism boosts the demand for goods and services, increasing the national GDP. This increase in GDP suggests that people are spending on travel and luxuries. Therefore, there is an increase in the construction of hotels to meet the growing demand and, in turn, spur the growth of the swimming pool construction market.
Swimming pools are hard to build due to their complex and precision work and water holding capacity. The walls need to be watertight to prevent water leakage from the pool. This requires high-quality materials, which are more expensive than regular-quality materials. Furthermore, the water must be regularly filtered using sand, cartridge, and vertical grid filters. The walls also require cleaning to prevent dirt and moss growth. Consequently, the construction and maintenance of swimming pools require a lot of energy, time, and money, which hampers market growth.
IoT sensors and platforms offer many features to maintain the cleanliness of the swimming pools efficiently. This will save maintenance cost and time as they can be used in systems that act as filters and temperature controllers. These systems can sense the water contamination level and clean it automatically, saving energy and time. IoT systems also control lights and water heaters. Therefore, IoT will make it cheaper to maintain and run swimming pools, creating new growth opportunities.
The global swimming pool construction market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
North America dominates the global swimming pool construction market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. The US, Canada, and Mexico are the three major countries in the swimming pool construction market in North America. The high regional share is attributed to the flourishing construction of swimming pools in these countries and the improving health awareness among people.

The global swimming pool construction market share is segmented by material and construction.
Based on type, the global swimming pool construction market is classified into Concrete, Fiberglass, and Steel Frames.
Concrete holds the largest market share and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. Concrete is strong and can withstand a lot of water pressure and thus making it the first choice for the construction of swimming pools. Concrete also makes it easy to build big swimming pools with its various properties. Concrete swimming pools offer considerable flexibility to experiment with different designs and colors.
Swimming pools made of Fiberglass last longer, have less construction time, and require less cost in maintenance than concrete pools. With these benefits, many manufacturers pre-build small and medium-sized pools in some of the most popular and complex shapes. This saves time during the installation process and lowers the project cost. These benefits of fiberglass will surely increase the growth of the swimming pool construction market.
Based on construction type, the global swimming pool construction market is segmented into Above-Ground and In-Ground.
In-Ground swimming pools acquire the highest market share and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Above-ground swimming pools are made with walls made of concrete, fiberglass, or vinyl liner and a steel frame. These pools are easy to build on the floors of above-ground homes and businesses in high-rise buildings. In contrast, Above-Ground swimming pools are constructed with the most advanced technology that provides the best quality. These pools are cost-efficient and easy to maintain.
The functions of the non-residential swimming pool construction market segment are more diverse. Public institutions, hotels, resorts, fitness centers, and water parks, as well as academic and athletic swimming pools, are encompassed within this category. Morover, the expansion of the wellness industry, developments in tourism trends, government investments in public amenities, and changing consumer demands for recreational facilities factors are collectively driving the segment growth.
