Travel Type Insights
The domestic segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 66% in 2021. The segment is estimated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Rising expenditure by domestic travelers for wellness activities is contributing to the segment growth. Furthermore, COVID has helped increase the number of domestic visitors as international borders were closed. As a result, tourists went to destinations within their home countries.
Domestic travelers have less difficulty visiting nearby attractions. Furthermore, due to budgetary constraints, budget-conscious visitors and low and middle-income workers often avoid international travel. This is anticipated to foster the growth of the segment. Domestic and local travel, outdoor activities, and preference for nature-based products are among the key travel trends augmenting the segment growth.
The international segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to increased spending per trip and increased travel to overseas destinations. According to the UNWTO, overall international tourist arrivals in 2022 could increase by 30% to 78% compared to 2021. However, this is 50-63% less than before the pandemic. Furthermore, increasing spending on social and physical well-being, especially due to concerns over a healthy lifestyle, is propelling the segment's growth.
North America dominated the market with a share of over 36% in 2021. This is due to the increasing emphasis on physical and mental health and high disposable income. The active marketing of top players on the importance of physical and mental wellbeing achieved through yoga, rejuvenation therapy, herbal remedies, meditation, agritourism, and spa therapies at exotic destinations is increasing the number of trips to North America. Europe emerged as the second-largest regional market in 2021. The rising need for wellbeing services owing to increasing cases of stress-related health issues is expected to boost the market growth in the region.
The market in the Asia Pacific is estimated to witness lucrative growth due to the growing popularity of various exotic destinations such as China, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore. In addition, the proliferation of hotel chains with centers offering massages, spa treatments, herbal treatments, and rejuvenation programs is projected to positively impact the market growth in the region.
In February 2019, Aman Spa Amanpuri, a wellness center that also provides medical services, opened in Thailand. Moreover, in July 2018, Evolution Wellness Holdings, a company based in Malaysia, launched a new wellness resort named Fiveelements Pte. Ltd.
