Luxury Hotel Market is Booming globally with Marginal Growth

Posted by Mrudula Anil Karmarkar on April 5th, 2022

The global luxury hotel marketsize is expected to reach USD 115.80 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 4.3% CAGR during the forecast period. The market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to the increasing purchasing power of consumers and the rising number of international as well as domestic tourists on business or leisure trips.

Travelers opting for lavish vacations look chiefly for comfort and quality of service, while hotel tariffs may make for a secondary consideration. To compete in the luxury hotel market, companies are focused on providing unique customer experiences by investing in infrastructure and technologically advanced appliances. Building customer relations by extending the highest degree of hospitality is also a key area of focus.

Major players in the market are integrating room control systems through the Internet of Things (IoT) platform. As a result, guests can control cooling, heating, and lighting in their rooms wirelessly through mobile-based applications. Furthermore, simplified hotel reservation processes have upped demand in recent years. Online hotel bookings are supplemented by readily-available information in the form of photos and videos of the property, along with customer feedback.

Hosting of sports events by a city or country has also been a major factor pushing the demand for luxury accommodations. Sports teams, as well as spectators traveling from various destinations for the tournament, tend to book their stays in luxury hotels, thus leading to a rise in the number of bookings. For instance, luxury hotel chains in Russia are believed to be gearing up for FIFA World Cup 2018.
