The Travel and Tourism industry is one of the largest in the world, with a (direct and indirect) contribution to the global economy of approximately US$9.3 trillion, or 10.4% of the entire global GDP.
Emerging generations – Generation Z (born in the late-1990s to early-2010s) and Millennials (born in the early-1980s to mid-1990s) will both represent important market opportunities in the tourism sector by 2040. Both of these demographics have grown up with technology and were raised with the Internet, which will play a key role in how they access, navigate and interact with different tourism products and services.
400 million jobs by 2028
1.5 billion international tourist arrivals in 2019
