China Tourism Report

BMI View : China's tourism market offers enormous potential for growth, with a wide range of attractions drawing in visitors while domestic economic growth provides for one of the biggest outbound travel markets in the world. The BMI   China Tourism report examines expected growth trends across key market indicators throughout the forecast period to 2018, including increasing industry value and the expansion of the hotel sector.

China is maintaining its position as one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world. The country is home to a wide range of attractions, including an impressive 47 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (only Italy has more) and over 2,500 nature reserves. Attractions include the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall, and many protected reserves such as Lushan National Park. With a relaxation of visa restrictions making the country more accessible, and an increase in international travel connections facilitating arrivals, we expect inbound travel to increase steadily throughout the forecast period to reach 34.5mn in 2018.

The outbound market is even more substantial. China has a long history of domestic travel; however improving international relations and domestic economic prosperity are increasing the popularity of overseas travel. With GDP growth expected to remain solid over the next few years, leading to increasing rates of private financial consumption, we expect outbound travel to increase from 95.8mn in 2015 to 122.5mn by 2018.

There are some caveats to the positive growth forecasts. The increasing levels of pollution in major tourism destinations such as Beijing are increasingly deterring potential visitors and domestic security concerns remain in some areas. Deteriorating relations with neighbouring Asia Pacific countries could also impact on travel, and any economic downturn in major source markets such as the USA and the eurozone will affect arrivals. Overall however, we expect to see very positive growth...
