BMI expects healthy growth in Turkey's tourism industry, as we forecast positive developments across all of the country's key indicators for tourism between 2014 and 2018. Some domestic and regional risks remain around security issues, but our confidence in the future of the market is reinforced by a swathe of new hotel developments across the country.

We expect to see a boost to arrival numbers of about 5mn between 2014 and 2018, taking the number of journeys to Turkey in 2018 to 39.3mn. This will be due to economic growth and increased consumer spending across most of Turkey's key source markets for arrivals, as well as continued investment in tourism and transport infrastructure in the country and the prospect of the effective marketing of Turkey's many tourism assets.

Several of the world's leading hotel chains are opening dozens of new hotels across the country in light of these positive indicators for growth. Work is also under way to significantly boost Turkey's air travel infrastructure, which delivers the majority of arrivals to the country, through the construction of a new six-runway airport servicing...
