LONDON – China’s travel and tourism industry posted a marginal growth during 2009−2013, with domestic tourism being the key contributor of the sector. The volume of domestic tourist visits increased at a CAGR of around 10% from 1.01 billion as of 2009 to 1.45 billion by the end of the review period. International arrivals surged at an over 2% CAGR , with total inbound tourist spending posting a CAGR of more than 2% during 2009-2013. The number of tourists from Hong Kong surged at a CAGR of 1%, whilst visitor arrivals from Macao recorded a negative CAGR of -1%. International departures increased at around 20% CAGR, primarily due to increasing income levels and consumers’ spending power. However, during 2012-2013, China saw a decline of 3.5% in international tourist arrivals. Inbound visitor numbers were negatively impacted by a lengthy visa process, rising Yuan exchange rate, and the on-going air pollution problems.

The country’s hotel sector has been a witness to massive investments from international hotel operators. Rising numbers of domestic tourist travels and a hike in international arrivals have resulted in the increased demand for accommodation, thus attracting more and more operators to expand in China.
