Travel Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The technological advances is notably driving the market growth, although factors such as health and safety risks associated with travel may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the travel industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Market Driver

One of the key factors driving global market growth is technological advances. The market relies on technologically advanced solutions that aid travel agents and their clients in accessing travel data, comparing reservation options, and booking the most efficient, economical, and comfortable option. Furthermore, advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have helped automate the travel booking process, eliminating the need to reenter employee travel preferences and, in turn, saving time and energy. The availability of technologically advanced features is helping the growth of this market as it reduces the time wasted by companies in making travel arrangements. Moreover, with the growing digitalization in payments, the market is gaining the maximum advantage as bookings and payments for travel have become easy for companies.

Key Market Trend

Increasing international tourist footfall is one of the key market trends that is expected to impact the industry positively in the forecast period. The presence of a large number of multinational corporations has a favourable effect on the number of business visits made by corporations all over the world. As a result, as the number of international travellers grows, so does the demand for travel activities, particularly through online travel service platforms. Aside from corporate travel, the tourist industry is booming, due to an increasing number of government initiatives to promote tourism. For instance, to enhance connectivity and promote tourism, the Government of India opened several airports in the past five years in different Indian cities. In addition, in the last five to seven years, sports tourism has gained popularity, resulting in a large number of sports enthusiasts attending sporting events such as the Olympics, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup, Super Bowl, and Cricket World Cup. This is likely to drive the growth of the market in the forecast years. 

Key Market Challenge

The spread of COVID-19 globally since Q1 2020 has been hindering the growth of the global market. The COVID-19 outbreak has become a worldwide healthcare emergency and has prompted businesses operating worldwide to stop international and national business travels to stop the spread of the disease. The pandemic has also led to a rise in airport health checkup formalities, with delays and tighter inspections, making the travel for employees tiresome. In addition, the safety risk is one of the most important factors that hinder the travel industry. Aircraft have a number of moveable parts and components (such as the main and tail rotors, driveshaft, and gearbox), which increases the possibilities of a potential malfunction. If any of these components/parts break down, the aircraft will get out of control. Thus, the rapidly increasing number of accidents discourages tourists from travelling, especially on airlines, which may limit the market growth in the coming years.

This market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread in the region in 2020, the travel industry came to a halt, negatively impacting air bookings and the hotel and hospitality industry in 2020. Consequently, the industry also registered a high volume of booking cancellations in 2020 due to the pandemic. However, countries such as India are expected to witness strong demand for travel due to tourism, especially for domestic destinations in the country, in 2022. Vendors in the region are offering tour packages and travel services, with all the precautionary measures in place to control the spread of the disease. Considering all these factors, the travel industry in APAC is expected to grow at a moderate rate during the forecast period.
