Tourism sector enjoyed remarkable rebound in 2022: Report

 Thursday, March 2, 2023 


The findings of IPK International’s newest World Travel Monitor on global outbound travel trends in 2022 was presented in ITB Berlin which showed that the tourism sector enjoyed a remarkable rebound in 2022. Globally, outbound travel climbed significantly year on year, although not to 2019 levels.

Although outbound travel in Asia trailed well behind pre-pandemic levels, European and American international trips were substantially closer to 2019 figures. Despite all of the problems and uncertainties in 2023, demand in international travel is constantly high, so very little stands in the way of international tourism recovering further in 2023.

According to IPK’s Global Travel Monitor®, outbound travel in 2022 increased by 90% year on year, resulting in a global volume of about 700 million trips. In comparison to outbound travel before the pandemic in 2019, this is 66% of pre-crisis levels. As a result, 2022 constituted a substantial shift towards recovery.

Trends differed while looking at individual continents. International travel from Europe increased by 92%, from North America by 87%, and from South America by 70%. Outbound travel has nearly recovered or reached three-quarters of former levels as a result of these growth rates. International travel from Asia remained much lower than in 2019, despite a 90% year-on-year rise in 2022.

This positive trend will continue in 2023, as per the IPK’s surveys. The worldwide outbound travel estimates for 2019 are within reach, at least for majority of source markets, travel destinations, and markets. The most recent poll findings show a mostly continuous interest for international travel in 2023.
