"United Kingdom Tourism Report Q2 2016" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

The UK has a large and mature tourism market and attracts high number s of inbound arrivals from a range of source markets, as well as a great deal of investment. Growth is expected to be low and stable over the next five years, with 2016 slightly better than the low growth in 2015. Infrastructure is continuing to be invested in, although the failure to commit to airport expansion is suppressing the industry's potential. Additionally, the potential exit of Britain from the European Union in mid-2016 creates uncertainty for inbound investment and the threat of terrorist attacks throughout Europe could damage short-term inbound arrivals.

Key Updates And Forecasts

Inbound arrivals are set to achieve moderate growth of 1.4% in 2016, following a disappointing 2015. Total inbound arrivals will reach 33.0mn by the end of the year. Expansion of air travel to and from London has received another blow with the announcement that a decision on when and where to expand London's airports has now been delayed until mid-2016. The UK's busiest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, are campaigning for the construction of a new runway.
