Summary
Due to a stronger US dollar, inbound tourism recorded slower growth in 2015 compared to 2014, while domestic and outbound tourism registered strong growth. As a result, trips to Canada in particular increased sharply in 2015. Moderate economic growth supported the rise in domestic and outbound tourism. Over the forecast period, domestic trips are expected to increase at an average annual rate of 1.7% while inbound and outbound tourist volumes are projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.3% and 4% respectively.

Key Findings
- The travel and tourism sector in the US demonstrated moderate growth in 2015. Domestic arrivals grew by 2.4% with 2.2 billion trips, while expenditure was up by 2.8% and stood at US$720.7 billion. This increase can be attributed to moderate economic growth and decreasing unemployment rates. Visiting friends and relatives (VFR) is the key purpose for taking domestic trips in the US. Due to a stronger US dollar, outbound trips recorded robust growth in 2015 while international arrivals' growth slowed in comparison to 2014. Canadian arrivals to the US plunged by -1.8% in 2014 and -4.4% in 2015. The growth of inbound trips slowed from 7.1% in 2014 to 2.9% in 2015, while outbound trips were up by 7.2% in 2015 and totaled 73.2 million. Outbound expenditure stood at US$238.9 billion in 2015 and inbound expenditure valued US$193.7 billion The consolidation wave that took place in the last decade resulted in fewer airlines dominating at several airports in the US. This has enabled them to charge higher prices; domestic airfares have risen by 5% over the last decade after adjusting inflation. Today, among 100 big airports, a single airline dominates at 40 airports in terms of seats available. One or two airlines currently dominate at 93 airports

- The expanding hotel industry in the US is attracting offshore capital and drove acquisitions in 2015. According to JLL, a global real estate services firm, acquisitions valued US$10 billion during the first half of 2015, an increase of 77% over the corresponding period a year ago. China's relaxation of restrictions on insurance firms' investments in the overseas market in 2012 and the ongoing slowdown in the domestic real estate market is encouraging Chinese insurers to look for attractive assets globally. In 2014, Anbang Insurance Group, which is based in China, bought Waldorf Astoria from the Hilton Hotel Group for US$2 billion
