Share Article

Growth in the Hotel industry in China has been volatile due to a number of macro-economic conditions, like the global recession in 2009, and non-economic factors like natural disasters and strict visa limits during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to experience steady development as China's economy develops and it the country becomes a leading tourist destination.

The World Tourism Organization forecasts that China will become the leading destination for international tourism by 2020.

In the five years through 2012, the Hotel industry in China has been growing 6.3% on average to an estimated $38.8 billion, according to IBISWorld research. However, growth has been volatile due to a number of macro-economic conditions, like the global recession in 2009, and non-economic factors like natural disasters and strict visa limits during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. A particularly bright year for the industry was 2010, due to the Shanghai Expo and the Guangzhou Asian Games, which resulted in a surge in foreign tourists entering the county.

The top four players in this industry–Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, InterContinental Hotels Group, Guangdong (International) Hotel Management Holdings, and Shanghai Jinjiang International Hotels Development–account for a combined market share of 4.1% in 2012, according to IBISWorld research. Market shares change every year in this dynamic industry, though, as the pace of investment in new capacity differs among players.

The World Tourism Organization forecasts that China will become the leading destination for international tourism by 2020. Development of the tourism sector will drive growth in the Hotel industry over the next five years. IBISWorld also expects foreign players to continue to have a significant impact on the industry's development. These companies have strong and dominant positions in the high-end market, but have recently started moving into the lower-star rated segments.
