Spain Sees Steady Growth in International Tourist Volumes and Inbound Tourist Expenditures

The sector contracted during the review period (2009–2013) in terms of tourist flows, while tourism expenditure registered only a marginal growth.

Reasons to Buy

Key Highlights

  • Tourism plays an important role in the Spanish economy; its contribution grew steadily during the review period, contributing 11.7% to GDP in 2013. Total tourism output grew from EUR179.0 billion (US$248.7 billion) in 2009 to EUR191.5 billion (US$253.8 billion) in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of 1.69%. Inbound tourism was the leading contributor in terms of total expenditure (includes inbound and domestic only), representing 50.1% of the Spanish tourism market in 2013, and the rest was accounted by domestic tourism.
  • In terms of volume, domestic tourism is the major contributor to the Spanish travel and tourism sector, despite the fall recorded during the review period. The total number of domestic trips fell from 155.0 million in 2009 to 144.5 million in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of -1.73%. This was largely due to the economic crisis, higher unemployment rates, and austerity measures taken by the government, such as an increase in taxes and a decrease in public sector salaries
  • International arrivals to Spain grew from 52.2 million in 2009 to 61.0 million in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of 3.96%, while inbound tourist expenditure increased at a CAGR of 4.52%, going from EUR47.1 billion (US$65.4 billion) in 2009 to EUR56.2 billion (US$74.5 billion) in 2013. Both international tourist volumes and inbound tourist expenditure recovered well from the financial crisis in 2009. A steady increase in arrivals from Mexico, Brazil, Russia and China partly contributed to this growth.
  • France, Portugal, Italy, the UK and Morocco are the five leading destination countries for Spanish tourists, with the latter being favored due to its low prices and tourist attractions, particularly its beaches and geographical proximity. These five countries together accounted for 55.3% of the total outbound tourist volume in 2013.
  • IAG sought control of the profit-making Vueling after another Spanish subsidiary, Iberia, incurred losses in 2012. This transaction provides an opportunity for IAG to increase its profitability in the country, while its mainline business is decreasing capacity. Vueling will continue to operate as a standalone unit under its own CEO, Alex Cruz, and the current management structure and business model will be retained.
  • Spaniards showed a strong interest towards traveling, even during poor economic conditions, by opting for alternatives such as private accommodation and low-cost airlines. Airbnb, for instance, a home sharing company, registered 1 million night bookings in Spain from September 2011 to August 2012. This represents a growth of 900% compared to the same period the previous year. Madrid and Barcelona accounted for a significant portion of this demand.
  • Europcar introduced InterRent, a new low-cost car rental brand targeted at leisure customers in Spain, Germany, France, Portugal and the UK. InterRent was launched in April 2013, in 44 locations, with a fleet of 6,000 vehicles including economy, mini, compact and minivan categories. To promote the launch of the new brand, the company aired an online marketing campaign in all five European countries offering the service.
  • Increasing internet penetration and the adoption of mobile internet technology has resulted in the growth of online travel bookings, which is expected to continue over the forecast period. The convenience of booking trips online and checking travel information is gaining popularity among Spanish internet users, especially the younger population.

Italy Tourism Industry is Counting on Tourists from BRIC Nations, Reveals New Report

The travel and tourism sector in Italy suffered from a prolonged phase of economic instability and lower levels of consumer confidence. As a result, the overall sector contracted significantly during the review period in terms of tourist flow, while tourism expenditure registered only a marginal growth. The decline was largely due to the economic crisis, high unemployment and increased taxes.

The report provides detailed market analysis, information and insights, including:

  • Historic and forecast tourist volumes covering the entire Italian travel and tourism sector
  • Detailed analysis of tourist spending patterns in Italy for various categories in the travel and tourism sector, such as accommodation, sightseeing and entertainment, foodservice, transport, retail, travel intermediaries and others
  • Detailed market classification across each category, with analysis using similar metrics
  • Detailed analysis of the airline, hotel, car rental and travel intermediaries industries

Scope

This report provides an extensive analysis related to the tourism demands and flows in Italy:

  • It details historical values for the Italian tourism sector for 2009–2013, along with forecast figures for 2014–2018
  • It provides comprehensive analysis of travel and tourism demand factors, with values for both the 2009–2013 review period and the 2014–2018 forecast period
  • The report provides a detailed analysis and forecast of domestic, inbound and outbound tourist flows in Italy.
  • It provides comprehensive analysis of the trends in the airline, hotel, car rental and travel intermediaries industries, with values for both the 2009–2013 review period and the 2014–2018 forecast period.

Reasons to Buy

  • Take strategic business decisions using historic and forecast market data related to the Italian travel and tourism sector.
  • Understand the demand-side dynamics within the Italian travel and tourism sector, along with key market trends and growth opportunities.

Key Highlights

  • Italy’s economy has struggled since 2008, and entered into a third recessionary phase in August 2014, after negative growth in the second quarter of 2014. The contracting economy makes it more difficult for Italy to reduce its heavy public debt, which is likely to reach 135% of GDP in 2014. Projected weak economic growth will continue to have adverse affects on the travel and tourism sector over the forecast period. However, direct tourism employment as a percentage of total employment, which has been rising since 2011, is expected to continue to do so over the forecast period. The overall unemployment rate in Italy stood at 12.0% in 2013, while youth unemployment was more than 35%.
  • Italy has recorded a rise in the number of visitors from Brazil, Russia, India and China, the BRIC countries. During the review period, tourists from China, Russia and Brazil increased at CAGRs of 15.2%, 15.9% and 5.6% respectively. The Italian government and tourism promotion agencies have been making efforts to attract tourists from these countries. For instance, to attract tourists from China, in 2014 Italy announced a reduction in the processing time for a tourist visa from five days to 36 hours. Italy opened a national tourism board office in Mumbai, India, in 2013.
  • Domestic tourism in Italy is a large and matured market. The total number of domestic trips fell from 114.1 million in 2009 to 76.7 million in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of -9.46%. This was largely due to the economic crisis, high unemployment, increased taxes and rising fuel costs.
  • Outbound tourism from Italy decreased from 29.1 million travelers in 2009 to 28.9 million in 2013, representative of a review-period CAGR of -0.17%. The decline was due to the country’s economic problems which had a negative impact on residents’ annual disposable incomes. Household disposable income fell by -3.0% in 2009, -0.8% in 2010 and 2011, -4.7% in 2012. However, outbound tourist expenditure recorded a marginal increase at a CAGR of 1.15% from EUR29.3 billion (US$40.7 billion) in 2009 to EUR30.7 billion (US$40.7 billion) in 2013.
  • Since its inception in 1947, Italy’s flagship airline, Alitalia, has hardly made a profit, and the airline almost disappeared after the financial crisis in 2008. High-speed trains on profitable routes along with LCCs affected the company’s performance. On the verge of bankruptcy, Alitalia signed a deal with Gulf carrier Etihad in August 2014, with Etihad acquiring a 49% stake in Alitalia for around EUR1.2 billion (US$1.6 billion).
  • The Italian government has been willing to offer leases on abandoned buildings and monuments for a period of 50 years, which can be extended by 25 years. The government hopes to attract leading hoteliers from around the world to restore and renovate old historic buildings and monuments, and develop them into luxury accommodation. For example, the Villa Tolomei in Florence was reopened as a five-star resort in May 2013 by Landmark Hotels. Other properties on offer include the Bourbon-built Santo Stefano prison in Ventotene, a historic jail in Procida, and a seafront castle in Gaeta. These new hotels will be advertised at Expo 2015 in Milan in October 2015.
  • Car rental companies in Italy are facing setbacks due to the high price of petrol and diesel. As of 2014, Italy had the fifth-highest petrol prices and the third-highest diesel prices in Europe. According to CGIA Mestre, the Italian association of sole traders and small businesses, high taxation is the main reason behind the high fuel prices. Tax on diesel in Italy was 55.4% in 2013, 59.1% for petrol.
  • Increasing internet penetration has resulted in strong growth of online travel bookings. According to the World Bank, internet penetration rose from 48.8% of the population in 2009 to 58.5% in 2013. With an increasing number of Italians booking travel online, traditional in-store intermediaries are also increasing their online presence and capability to meet demand.

Key Highlights

  • The country’s energy infrastructure construction is expected to be supported by the government’s plans to develop nuclear energy, increasing its usage to half of the total energy consumption by 2022. South Korea has plans to increase the use of nuclear energy from 29.2% of total energy consumption in 2012 to 43.4% by 2022, and 59.0% by 2030. Accordingly, the total nuclear power installed capacity is expected to increase by 59.0%, going from 20.7GWe in 2012 to 32.9GWe by 2022. In accordance with this plan, 18 new nuclear power plants are proposed to be constructed by 2030, with an anticipated investment of KRW40–50 trillion (US$32–40 billion). With such an increase in the capacity of nuclear energy, substantial investments in the power sector are expected to drive growth of the energy infrastructure over the forecast period.
  • Significant investments are being made in the country’s infrastructure in order to improve its quality, effectiveness and coverage, as well as maintaining its transport network. In 2013, the South Korean government announced its plan to invest KRW124.0 trillion (US$108.6 billion) on various road, rail and other transportation infrastructure development projects across the country.
  • The commercial construction market will be supported by a number of hotel and resort development projects. 20th Century Fox, one of the six major American film studios, is planning to construct a KRW3.8 trillion (US$3.5 billion) new 75-acre theme park in Changwon City, which is expected to be completed in 2018. Moreover, the French hotel group Accor SA is in the process of constructing a 300-room hotel in Seoul, which is expected to be completed in 2016.
  • South Korea’s housing market showed signs of recovery towards the beginning of 2014. According to the KOSIS, the housing purchase price index grew by 1.4% in the first quarter of 2014, when compared to the first quarter of 2013.

According to the KOSIS, the proportion of the population aged 65 years and above increased from 7.2% in 2000 to 11.8% in 2012, and is expected to reach 15.7% in 2020 and 24.3% by 2030. Moreover, the population’s median age increased from 31.8 in 2000 to 39.1 in 2012, and is projected to reach 43.4 by 2020 and 48.5 by 2030. A larger elderly population will put pressure on existing resources and facilities, as well as creating conditions for an increase in investments in new and refurbished healthcare buildings.

Singapore is Expecting High Growth in Infrastructure and Residential Construction Projects till 2018

Singapore’s construction industry recorded a nominal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.64% during the review period (2009–2013), with growth being driven primarily by industrial, infrastructure and residential construction activities, which collectively generated 78.0% of the industry’s total value in 2013.

Of the total value awarded in 2013, the value of contracts for the public sector was 14.8 billion (US$11.8 billion), while for the private sector it was SGD21.0 billion (US$16.8 billion).
  • Singapore has become one of Asia’s leading petrochemical and refining hubs. It does not have any domestic oil reserves, and depends on crude oil imports to meet the growing demand for petrochemical products, supporting growth of the petrochemical and refining sector. The government is promoting long-term growth in its refining capacity to maintain the country’s leading position in refining and oil trading, and offers tax breaks to companies investing in the petrochemical sector. Growth in the refinery buildings category will be driven by rising demand over the forecast period, and the country’s efforts to remain competitive in the refining sector.

The government aims to achieve a recycling rate of 65% by 2020, and 70% by 2030; this is likely to attract large-scale investment in the waste-processing plants category over the forecast period. In 2013, Sembcorp industries, a leading energy, water and marine group based in Singapore, announced plans to invest SGD250 million (US$200.0 million) to construct a waste-to-energy plant that will produce 140 tonnes of steam per hour from commercial and industrial waste.
  • According to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), energy demand in Singapore is projected to rise from 36TWh in 2009 to 51TWh by 2035. According to the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), the country’s renewable energy has potential to generate 10% of total electricity demand by 2020, without government subsidies), compared to present levels of less than 1%. For this, the country will need investment of SGD4.0 billion (US$3.2 billion) from private companies for 12 years.
  • In 2013, the government announced the first half of the 2014 Government Land Sale (GLS) program, comprising eight confirmed and 15 reserve-list sites. The confirmed list includes seven private residential sites and one commercial, while the reserve list includes 13 private residential sites. Together these sites will supply 11,600 private residential units, including 2,800 EC units. The government announced the second half of the GLS program in June 2014, which will supply 10,200 residential units, including 1,500 ECs. This will support the residential construction market’s growth over the forecast period.

Irish payment cards registered positive growth during the review period (2009-2013), recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.75%, to reach 6.3 million cards in circulation by the end of 2013. Improvements to banking infrastructure such as the increased installation of point-of-sale (POS) terminals in merchant outlets drove the growth. In terms of transaction value, payment cards valued EUR49.1 billion (US$65.1 billion) in 2013, after registering a review-period CAGR of -0.22%.

It collects feedback from users to understand their preferences and improve the service.

Therefore, AIB has generated separate accounts on Twitter and Facebook, AIB and AskAIB, one which is very much the bank’s corporate face, and one dedicated to customer queries. The bank also uses Flickr and YouTube to share images and videos of sponsored events and instructional videos.

To cater these customers, banks have introduced programs whereby customers can donate a percentage of their total credit card expenditure to charitable programs.
