This report discusses tourism definitions, latest trends on international arrivals and receipts, changes in tourist profiles and behavior, and tourism policies.  According to the study, the number of global international arrivals will continue to increase from 2010 to 2030. The average grow will be of 3% per year. By 2030, these arrivals are expected to reach almost 2 billion.

“As more and more destinations develop tourism, arrivals spread more widely across the globe. Europe is expected to maintain its position as the top receiving region and to receive 744 million tourists by 2030 (out of which 577 million to EU28 destinations). However, its market share is forecast to drop from 60% in 1995 to 41% by 2030. Most tourists arriving in EU28 destinations will still originate from other EU28 countries. In fact, their share is forecast to increase”

Report 2 – “European Tourism in 2014: Trends & Prospects”, European Travel Commission, January 2014.

This report contains charts and graphs about economic indicators that suggest a strong performance from Europe’s biggest economies: Germany, the United Kingdom and France. According to the report, most destinations posted positive results from these Germany and the UK, with an important growth owed to good weather conditions.

“European tourism experienced a consistent stable growth driven by key events and the implementation of successful marketing activities by destinations. Nevertheless, Europe’s position as the world’s number one tourist destination is not incontestable. Half of all international arrivals to Europe are generated by only a few markets – mainly intra-regional – with modest growth rates”
