“Overall, the Western European tourism sector is extremely well developed, with stable growth in arrivals and strong rise in tourism receipts and domestic hotel industry value. Although well established, there is still room for growth in many countries, particularly with regards to the hotels sector, and further opportunities are offered by the continued expansion of transport infrastructure across the region. However, we note that some countries' tourism sectors are fairly mature and offer fewer opportunities for newcomers than their less well developed peers. Moreover there are downside risks to our forecasts in the form of potential further economic downturn.”
Business Monitor has just published a brand new special report, Western Europe Tourism Report 2013, covering Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. The report provides you with five-year forecasts for arrivals by region and country, domestic hotel industry value, hotel numbers, international tourism receipts and outbound departures. It also contains details of recent transport infrastructure and hotel sector developments.
The report gives you historic data and five-year forecasts for the 12 countries. This allows you to compare countries within the region and identify key opportunities and target markets for your company’s operations. It will also help you to evaluate the main source markets for each of the countries, and their top outbound holiday destinations. This provides the ability much more clearly to determine outperforming and underperforming markets.
The new report focuses on the potential opportunities on offer in the tourism sector, and the key risks present. It will be a particularly advantageous tool for hotel companies, airline companies and other industries involved in the tourism sector. It also offers detailed analysis of key market drivers and highlights key players in the hotel sector in each country.
The special report draws on BMI’s 30 years of experience to critically evaluate the tourism market outlook for the twelve major countries of interest in Western Europe, helping you assess the roles they could play in your company’s growth strategy for 2013 and beyond.
