PATA Visitor Arrival Forecasts: Asia Pacific Maintaining its Growth Potential to 2019

International Visitor Arrivals to Asia Pacific destinations will continue their growth momentum over the next five years, according to the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Visitor Arrivals Forecasts for the period 2015 to 2019. Preliminary estimates indicate that the rate of growth over that period will average between five and six percent per annum to generate an aggregate inbound count of more than 670 million by the end of 2019. PATA CEO Mario Hardy said, “According to the PATA Visitor Arrivals Forecasts, 38 destinations in the period 2015 to 2019 will see more than 158 million additional international visitor arrivals. Asia as a destination region will grow faster at between six and seven percent over that period and receive in excess of half a billion foreign visitors by the end of the forecast period.” Asia will not only benefit from this increased travel volume, but also will be a major generator of that demand both within the Asia region and well beyond. European source markets will also remain valuable to the Asia Pacific region and are expected to generate close to 50 million arrivals into the region annually by 2019.
