Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/05/2014 -- BMI View: BMI expects slow but steady growth in the Romanian tourism market, with economic recovery in Western as well as Central and Eastern Europe indicating a gradual increase in inbound travel throughout our forecast period to 2018. Domestic economic growth is also expected to pick up, leading to slow but steady growth in the number of outbound travellers.
The expected growth in inbound and outbound travel is dependent on continuing economic growth in Europe, with Romania's inbound arrivals market dominated entirely by countries from within the region. Germany, Hungary and Bulgaria are particularly important source markets, and any return to the conditions seen in the global credit crunch would have an impact on arrivals to Romania. Currently the future is looking positive, and we expect arrivals to increase from 8.2mn in 2013 to 10.6mn in 2018, offering potential investors a substantial investment opportunity.

In the longer term, tourism would benefit from an expansion of long-haul travel capacity, in order to broaden source markets and lessen the reliance on Europe.
Investors are attracted to Romania as it is relatively underdeveloped, particularly along the attractive coastline, where there are many affordable real estate opportunities. With slow but steady growth expected in inbound and domestic travel we forecast an overall increase in the number of hotels in the country by the end of...
