In 1950, the number of international arrivals was still 25 million and in 2014 it was 1 133 million.

Developing countries versus developed countries

During this period between 2010 and 2030, international arrivals in developing countries will grow twice as fast as those in already developed economies.

In concrete terms, this means a growth of 4.4% per year in developing countries and a growth of 2.2% in developed economies.

Developing countries include Central and Eastern Europe, Eastern Mediterranean Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and certain parts of Asia.

As a result, the number of international arrivals in developing countries will exceed the number of arrivals in developed countries even before the year 2020.

In the year 1980, developing and developed economies had shares of 30 and 70 per cent respectively of total international arrivals.

In the year 2030, these power relations will be reversed…

After all, the developing and developed economies will then have a share of 57 per cent and 43 per cent respectively of total international arrivals.

Most popular destinations

The vast majority of tourists travel in their region of origin.

For example, many Europeans travel somewhere in Europe. This is about eighty per cent of all arrivals worldwide.

Biggest customers at region level

The biggest buyers of international travel are developed economies such as Europe, America and Asia.

The developing economies are catching up, however.

The disposable income is rising rapidly there and, as a result, the number of people travelling in markets such as:

  • Asia
  • Central Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • Africa
  • Middle East
  • Latin America
