Now Available: Croatia Tourism Report Q4 2014

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Croatia's tourism market will continue to demonstrate strong growth as inbound travel increases, due to sustained growth in the major EU economies and the relaxation of travel restrictions to Croatia. The forecast period will also see increased investment in infrastructure and the tourism sector, with EU funds now readily available to the Czech government. The relatively low rate of growth we predict for the Croatian economy will have the effect of keeping prices low and further increasing inward travel and spending .

We expect to see year on year growth in inbound arrivals reach at least 5% over our forecast period to 2018, when arrivals will reach 14.1mn. This growth will be dependent on the economic health of key EU countries which provide the bulk of the Croatian tourism industry's supply markets. Outbound travel will also grow but this will be more modest, owing to a lack of disposable income as the country's economy fails to grow significantly. This sluggish growth will act as an upward pressure on tourist arrivals, as prices will remain low. We expect to see outbound tourism increase to Europe as EU membership loosens travel restrictions, from around 1.9mn departures in 2013 to 2.4mn in 2018.

Newly available EU funds will provide sorely needed investment in the country's transport infrastructure and E membership will see a boost in inward investment in the tourism sector, the country's largest industry. Furthermore, the country's rising reputation as a spectacular shooting location for television and film will increase its appeal to tourists even more. Challenges and opportunities lie in extending the value of the tourism sector beyond the traditional summer season, for example through culinary tourism.
