Fast Market Research recommends "Russia Tourism Report Q1 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2015 -- Negative developments in the Russian tourism market, starting in 2014, are likely t o continue into 2015 and beyond . The Ukraine crisis in particular has damaged Russia's reputation amongst key tourist source markets in the EU and North America and the exchange of sanctions between Russia and the EU in particular is likely to inflict further damage on tourist arrivals to Russia if sustained. The FIFA World Cup in 2018 will provide an opportunity for the country to regain ground lost since 2014. The associated investment is sorely needed in a country with an outdated accommodation sector and aging transport infrastructure.

The ongoing crisis in Ukraine is the primary reason for our view that the Russian tourism industry will continue to contract in coming years, especially if there is no rapid resolution of the conflict or a significant shift in Russia's foreign policy, neither of which look likely outcomes in late 2014. Sanctions from European countries, a key source market for Russian tourism, have severely affected arrivals alongside reputational damage caused to Russia through its controversial foreign and policies. The crash of Malaysian Airways flight MH17, and the perception of Russian involvement in the events leading up to the crash, have also caused specific damage to inbound travel. International arrivals to Russia are expected to continue to fall in 2015 to around 22.2mn, down from an estimated 24.6mn in 2014, and then drop even further to 16.5mn by 2018 as tourists continue to stay away. This will have a knock-on effect on tourism-related receipts and hotel numbers, and BMI expects both to decline over the forecast period. Despite experiencing an overall drop in arrivals to Russia, the Asia Pacific region remains likely to increase its share of arrivals to Russia as a result of this as the effect of the fallout from the Ukraine crisis will be felt less strongly outside of NATO countries.
