Key Highlights
Increasing business and leisure travel to drive domestic and international trips in Australia

The depreciation of the Australian dollar against the US dollar over the historic period encouraged Australian tourists towards domestic tourism rather than outbound tourism. Domestic trips increased at a CAGR of 4.6%, from 74.4 million in 2012 to 88.9 million in 2016, and is expected to increase further at a CAGR of 3.4%, from 88.9 million in 2017 to 104.4 million in 2021. International arrivals registered strong growth, increasing at a CAGR of 8.5%, from 6.0 million in 2012 to 8.4 million in 2016. Furthermore, it is expected to increase at a CAGR of 6.7%, from 9.1 million in 2017 to 11.8 million by 2021. Government initiatives such as the Working Holiday Program, Approved Destination Status Scheme, and campaigns such as There’s Nothing Like Australia, are major drivers of inbound tourism, boosting international arrivals.

Full service airlines dominate the passenger airlines market

Full service airlines dominate the market and currently contribute an 82% share of total passenger airlines revenue. The market for full service airlines is expected to increase at a CAGR of 1.5%, from US$14.9 billion in 2017 to US$15.8 billion by 2021. The market for low-cost airlines is also increasing and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 2.0%, from US$3.2 billion in 2017 to US$3.4 billion by 2021.

Internet penetration and on-line portals to drive travel intermediaries’ growth
Australian travel intermediaries’ revenue declined over the historic period, from US$29.3 billion in 2012 to US$26.0 billion in 2016, owing to currency devaluation during the period and the country’s economic slowdown. However, the market value of travel intermediaries is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.6%, from US$28.1 billion in 2017 to US$34.9 billion in 2021.
