  • Smaaash Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • Small amusement park or entertainment zone, also known as family entertainment center (FEC), serves local communities in both major and small cities. In comparison to a regular amusement park, FECs are designed to keep the entire family entertained at a substantially lower cost per person. Arcades, gaming consoles, video games, soft play areas, indoor playground systems and virtual & augmented reality activities are all available.
  • With turnover of USD1.2 billion, India accounts for 0.6% of the Asia Pacific total in 2020. India’s sporting and recreational services turnover declined by 14.1% in 2020, making India the 11th largest country in the region. The industry’s turnover is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% over 2020-2025 and fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2023.
  • Favorable youth demographics and continuous launch of new FECs supporting family activities, F&B integration, and participatory play boost the growth of the global family/indoor entertainment centres market. In addition, increase in number of malls positively impacts the growth of the market. 
  • With the increase in work pressure, not many people have the time to spend an entire day at theme parks and resorts. Family Entertainment Centers like Smaaash have provided them much needed entertainment avenues at convenient locations close to their homes. Increasing disposable incomes, coupled with limited leisure time, has led to the exponential growth of FECs.
  • Bandai Namco, a leader in indoor amusement park and family entertainment centres (FEC), has launched the biggest indoor amusement park in Mumbai. The major players operating in global family/indoor entertainment centre are Dave & Buster's, CEC Entertainment Inc, Cinergy Entertainment, KidZania, Scene 75 entertainment centres, The Walt Disney Company, Lucky Strike Entertainment, Funcity, Smaaash Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and Lego Land Discovery Centre and others.

Future Prospects

  • The industry’s turnover is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% over 2020-2025 and fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2023.
  • Key drivers enabling the growth in the industry are rise in the number of malls and increase in the youth population.
  • There is a rise in the number of malls across India, enabling the growth of FECs. Mall developers are increasingly including FECs in their plans since they help in increasing and retaining footfalls at malls and increase the number of hours consumers spend in them. New developers have begun to plan bigger spaces in their malls and consider FECs as a USP for them.
  • Family / indoor entertainment facilities offer loyalty programs, which is an important market driver. The program is supported by parameters like visit points, reward points, cards, memberships, etc. These loyalty programs are used to retain and attract new customers with advertising aid in family entertainment centres. 

Smaaash Awards & Achievements

  • Smaaash, has been conferred with the esteemed ‘North India Best Employer Brand’ Award 2019.
  • Smaaash was bestowed with prestigious Best Sports Bar in India Award at the 3rd Edition of the India Nightlife Convention and Awards (INCA) held on 15th and 16th September 2018 at Shangri-La’s Eros, Janpath, New Delhi.

Smaaash Strengths

  • The company has a strong presence in tier-1 cities in India as well as abroad, which enables the company to realise higher revenue. The company has 21 entertainment centres at present, which is far greater than its peers. 
  • Smaaash is equipped with hosting of events, parties and gaming, which makes it unique and first of its kind as a family entertainment centre in India.
  • The company has Sachin Tendulkar as its brand ambassador. 
  • Technology the company uses such as sports simulation technology and proprietary gamification technologies to make the virtual reality gaming experience more attractive for youths is what makes the company stand apart in the industry.

Smaaash Shortcomings

  • The company lacks the ability to manage its expenses and has registered losses since incorporation despite improving revenue from operations. 
  • The company has a huge debt amount in its books, which far exceeds the revenue generated by the company in FY19. 
  • Management was not able to diligently allocate funds which they had raised for their expansion, but rather those funds were used to keep the company afloat.
  • The indoor family entertainment centre industry is increasing rapidly, and Smaaash is unable to keep up with the pace. The company must analyse the trends and culture to keep increasing its market share in the industry.

Smaaash Opportunities

  • Partnerships with local players can help Smaaash Entertainment expand its reach in international markets. Smaaash Entertainment can bring global procedures and execution knowledge to the table, while the local companies have local expertise.
  • Huge entry costs makes it hard for unorganised player to take entry in the market, which could benefit Smaaash to capture the market, followed by latest trends in the industry.
  • Smaaash also operates in the U.S.A., which provides know-how of the U.S.A. competitive market for Smaaash, which will add benefit to foray into overseas markets. 

Smaaash Threats

  •  As the industry's new product launch cycles shorten, players like Smaaash Entertainment are facing increased competition. Smaaash Entertainment can't adapt quickly enough to the needs of specific segments that disruptors are focusing on because of its enormous customer base. 
  • Even though Smaaash is a market leader in providing new technology to the table, it still has to challenge new product innovations done internationally, which when brought in India could take away brand loyalty among consumers.
