Travel and Tourism
Detailed forecasts and quantitative evidence-based analysis for the travel & tourism sector.
After suffering through the mining boom, when the strength of the AUD made it very hard for the local industry to compete, travel and tourism has taken off in recent years. Over that same time period, the total annual economic impact of travel has grown to $7.2tn. Growth has been fueled by new destinations, technology, improved transport networks, and a growing middle class in emerging markets.
Our colleagues at Tourism Economics (an Oxford Economics company), specialise in providing actionable data, forecasts, and analysis of travel trends. Working with our TE colleagues, we work closely with clients in Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region to assist in the interpretation and application of analysis to marketing, investment, and policy decisions. We provide consistent and reliable historical data and forecasts for:
Drivers of tourism, including economic factors, demographics, and exchange rates.
Travel segmentation, including international arrivals, overnight stays, arrivals by mode of transportation and purpose of trip, and departures.
Travel spending by purpose of trip, for domestic or international travel.
Tourism economic impact, including GDP and employment.
Arrivals and spending by origin market for 190 countries plus regional aggregates.
Air passenger flows between countries and regions, including domestic and international travel, and forecasts for short haul, medium haul, and long haul flights.
Travel to and from major cities, with comparable inbound and outbound travel data for 300 cities around the world.
