The travel industry is witnessing growth propelled by the surging trend of solo travel, a rising demand for authentic local experiences, and accelerated technology adoption, reflecting changing consumer preferences and driving economic expansion.

In November 2023, personal income rose by $81.60 billion (0.4% monthly), and disposable personal income increased by $17.90 billion (0.4%). Rising disposable incomes and trending aesthetics of traveling in social media platforms have boosted demand in the travel industry.

Moreover, the first UNWTO World Tourism Barometer reveals that international tourism in 2023 reached 88% of pre-pandemic levels, with approximately 1.3 billion international arrivals. Looking ahead, the report anticipates a full recovery by the end of 2024, driven by the release of pent-up demand, improved air connectivity, and a robust recovery in Asian markets and destinations.

Besides, the global hotels, resorts, and cruise lines industry is thriving due to increased demand from millennials and Gen Z for quality stays, boosted by a growing global travel and tourism sector. Factors like consumer spending, GDP growth, and affordable hotel prices drive industry expansion.

The global hotel, resort, and cruise lines market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2022 to 2030.
