2020 Revenue Forecasts Slashed by Nearly Half

Global mobility is one of the main drivers of the pandemic and is seen as the reason as to the virus’ rapid spread across the globe. As such the first action that many governments took is to close its borders from travellers in an effort to stem the spread of the virus. The dire health situation needed drastic measures in many countries but these same measures also had massive economic implications particularly for the tourism industry.

Forecasted revenue from tourism in 2020 before the pandemic took hold was at a rosy $712B but since COVID-19 that forecast has now been slashed to $369.4B – a decrease of 41%. The new forecast is also significantly lower than 2019’s recorded revenue which was at $685B.

European Tourism Hardest Hit

Europe, Asia and North America’s tourism are the most affected among the different regions. Europe’s forecast was slashed by nearly $95B – a 41.4% decrease while Asia’s forecast was slashed by 33.4% totalling over $85B.
