The rising number of health-conscious people is contributing to the increasing demand for wellness activities at popular travel destinations.
Key Industry Insights & Findings from the report:
In terms of service, the lodging segment dominated the market in 2021. This can be attributed to the rapid expansion of large hotel chains that provide exotic therapies including rejuvenation programs, spa treatments, and other services.
Based on travel type, the domestic segment accounted for the maximum revenue share in 2021. This can be attributed to the increased expenditure by domestic tourists on wellness activities.
North America is estimated to dominate the market throughout the forecast period. This can be attributed to the high demand for physical and mental health, increasing disposable income, and growing awareness about spa benefits.
Marriott International, Inc. established an all-inclusive platform in August 2019 to cater to the growing demand during the holiday season. Marriott International also announced that it has secured management agreements with hotel developers who aim to invest over USD 800 million in five new all-inclusive resorts, underscoring its confidence in its size and client base.
Marriott International launched a hotel development program named “Marriott’s Bridging the Gap” in June 2022.
The increase in lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and high cholesterol due to busy work schedules and sedentary lifestyles is propelling the market growth. The market is heavily influenced by factors such as increasing awareness regarding healthcare tourism and the rising burden of disease. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, rise in disposable income, increasing adoption of online travel services, growing influence of social media, and raised government investment to attract tourists are propelling the market growth.
The overall tourism industry was adversely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The market witnessed a significant decline in the number of travellers owing to restrictions on travel and the entry of international tourists. According to Global Wellness Institute, the number of wellness trips in North America declined by 43.8% in 2020. Increasing number of secondary travellers and resume of activities by spas and resorts are expected to boost the market growth post-pandemic.
