Premiumization in Travel and Tourism, 2021 Update - Thematic Research

Luxury travel has historically been centered around the use of premium products and material possessions to create a luxury holiday. As the millennial generation becomes a larger percentage of the luxury traveler population, their preference for transformational experiences over material goods will change the premiumization industry.

This thematic research report takes an in-depth look into the theme of premiumization and its role within the travel sector today.This report analyzes key leaders in this theme, the industry in the after-effects of COVID-19, alongside key macroeconomic and premiumization-specific trends in the theme.

This thematic report dives deep into the industry, whilst giving case studies as real-time examples of how premiumization has impacted the travel industry, especially after COVID-19. Recommendations are then offered for the travel sector on how to adapt to and maximize return from this theme.

“The Oxford Dictionary definition of premiumization is ‘The action or process of attempting to make a brand or product appeal to consumers by emphasizing its superior quality and exclusivity’. Premiumization can occur at many points of the travel process, however each different traveler’s perception of premium and luxury will be different. This gives scope within the theme to attract a wide, and new range of travelers. The overall identity of luxury has changed massively over past decades, where premium travelers are now looking for new ways to premiumize their trip”

Key Highlights
- Premiumization is linked with personalization, improving the service given in the travel and tourism space, something that is highly regarded by premium travelers.
- COVID-19 is the biggest macroeconomic trend to impact the theme in 2021. The effect it can have on the premiumization theme has the possibility be two-fold.
- Transformational travel is still at the forefront of the theme. With more millennial luxury travelers, the search for an experience and more meaningful travel is still present, and is even heightened amid COVID-19. This will allow for a future focus on health and wellness luxury tourism.
