Global tourism defies hurdles, international trips to grow at 2 percent in 2013

Published on : Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Looking ahead to 2013, IPK International’s World Travel Monitor expects world tourism to show its resilience once again with international trips growing in the 2-3% range while the UNWTO is predicting a 2-3% rise in international arrivals. This moderate but solid growth demonstrates that world tourism is remarkably stable despite slow global economic growth and the impact of the eurozone crisis and other factors.

People around the world still want to travel despite the global financial and economic crisis, and the tourism industry once again proved its resilience and ability to overcome the impact of negative external factors this year. International travel was expected to reach a new all-time high in 2012 and then grow moderately in 2013, driven by emerging markets.

According to IPK International’s World Travel Monitor, a total of 6.8 billion trips were to take place in 2012, 2.5% more than in 2011, domestic travel to grow by 2% to reach 5.77 billion trips while international travel to rise by 4% to 1.03 billion trips.

This forecast was in line with the expectations of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) which saw a 3-4% rise in international tourist arrivals in 2012.
