The Travel Industry Forecast Review 2014

The global economy is on the mend and arrivals grew again in 2013 at a rate of 4%, reaching record numbers of over one billion world-wide. The Middle East and Africa demonstrated the highest growth despite continued instability and Asia, especially China, remains a key driver of demand. As smartphones become an indispensable part of modern-day life, travel companies offer consumers an increasing number of services for purchasing, researching and experiencing travel. Online and mobile developments enable consumers to bypass traditional distribution, with the sharing economy going from strength to strength.

Against a backdrop of conflict and unrest in parts of the Middle East, the region’s tourism performance is in a state of stagnation with pockets of growth in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. One of the big success stories is the Big Three airlines and their march to global domination. Dubai pins its hopes on Dubai Expo 2020, whilst Egypt continues to bounce along the bottom affected by ongoing instability.

Speaker:  Kinda Chebib, Research Analyst, Euromonitor International
