When we make long-term expectations for our customers and companies, we typically analyze the research of two leading travel organizations. The World Trade Organization (WTO) or the World Tourism Organization (WTO) is headquartered in Spain and travels to Washington, DC, USA. The views of the two organizations are very promising.
According to the World Tourism Organization, the long-term prospects for tourism are optimistic. Despite the multiple challenges facing tourism in recent years, the World Tourism Organization has maintained its long-term positive prospects for the time being.
The World Tourism Organization estimates that by 2020, the number of international arrivals will reach 1.6 billion. By 2020, 1.2 billion of the world’s immigrants will be within the region, and 378 million long-distance passengers.
The total number of tourists by region indicates that by 2020, the three main reception areas will be Europe (7.17 billion), East Asia and the Pacific (397 million) and the Americas (282 million), followed by Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and the Caribbean.
East Asia and the Pacific, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa are expected to set a record annual growth rate of more than 5%, while the global average growth rate is 4.1%. More developed regions in Europe and the United States are expected to show below-average growth rates. Europe will account for the largest proportion of inbound tourists worldwide, although it will fall by 60% in 1995 and to 46% by 2020.
The US Department of Commerce (DOC) predicts that international travel to the United States will resume its growth model by 2010. Visitors are expected to grow by 9% in 2010 and then grow by 6% to 9% annually by 2015. This will offset a 5% drop in the number of registered arrivals in full recovery in 2009, the first drop in the number of visitors since 2003. The number of tourists in 2003 increased by 41%, which is a low level in the past ten years to 2008, which is a record of foreigners.
The 2010-2015 forecast is expected to record a record of the total number of annual arrivals for the five-year period of the forecast. From 2009 to 2015, the number of international tourists will reach 83 million, an increase of 51%.
