PATA plans tourism growth curve

Published on : Sunday, May 19, 2019

In 2018, Asia Pacific destinations jointly received around 700 million international visitor arrivals (IVAs), a rise of 7.7% over the 2017 figure, as per PATA’s Annual Tourism Monitor 2019 Early Edition published on Thursday.


Increasing volume of arrivals of just 562 million in 2014, the year-on-year growth of visitors into and across the Asia Pacific region has risen time and again every year, peaking in 2018 at 699.6 million international arrivals.


The arrival distribution has been comparatively constant in the last five years, even though slightly favoring Asia, mainly at the cost of the Americas.


Within each of those destinations, there are differences in terms of individual destinations and sub-regional level. Between 2014 and 2018 for instance, Southeast Asia achieved 1.34 points of share related to IVAs into and across the Asia Pacific region, while North America lost 1.55 points of share.


At this level, there are numerous main indicators of particular interest, chiefly the top five destinations by volume of visitor arrivals last year. Evidently, in 2018, China was the number one destination for visitor arrivals, with close to 161 million. That alone shows 22.6% of the total visitor volume into and across the region in that year.


The remaining four destinations in this top five list comprise North and Central America along with Northeast and West Asia. Together, these top five destinations estimated for 54.8% of the total visitor arrivals into and across the region in 2018.


A second destination indicator considers the top five destinations that welcomed the additional volume added to their respective inbound counts between 2017 and 2018.
