Posted Date:  September 13, 2019

Below are the findings of a recent travel research report by Phocuswright, which provides and compares total and online travel gross bookings for six regions: U.S./Canada, Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Latin America (LATAM).

As per the research the global travel industry performed better by beating GDP gains in most markets than most other economic sectors in 2018. Research reveals that, total travel bookings increased by a projected 7.3% to US$1.4 trillion. Critical to global travel companies, online travel bookings are growing twice as fast as the overall market.

Following are seven key developments and trends from the research report:

  1. Online bookings growing twice as fast as overall market
  2. APAC is now the world's largest regional travel market
  3. Online share of total bookings approaches milestone
  4. APAC to overtake U.S. online
  5. Suppliers lead online, but OTAs rule hotel segment
  6. Top travel markets remain unchanged (U.S., China, Japan, Germany, and U.K.)
