Qatars government is focusing on improving tourism infrastructure, and plans to finish many projects by 2020 through an investment of US$210 billion. These infrastructural developments are part of the Qatar National Vision 2030 strategy which aims to diversify projects associated with the 2022 Fifa World Cup to stimulate economic growth.
Domestic tourist volumes in Qatar increased by 29.5%, from 409,954 trips in 2009 to 530,686 trips in 2013. An increase in the disposable income of consumers supported the rising number of domestic trips taken by Qataris during the review period. Domestic tourism trips taken by residents are limited due to the size of the country.
Since Qatar is a business-led tourism destination, business trips alone accounted for 66.0% of the total inbound tourism in 2013. The number of international arrivals to Qatar increased from 1.5 million in 2009 to 2.6 million in 2013. In addition to the increase in inbound tourist arrivals during the review period, inbound tourist expenditure also substantially rose at a review-period CAGR of 20.67%, to reach QAR10.4 billion (US$2.8 billion) in 2013.
Outbound tourist volumes from Qatar grew, as the number of international trips rose from 1.4 million in 2009 to 1.8 million in 2013. Leisure emerged as the primary purpose for outbound travel, accounting for 70.1% of all outbound trips. An increase in the disposable income of consumers, new code-share agreements and the introduction of more flights by Qatar Airways encouraged outbound trips during the review period.
The Qatari aviation market is expected to post a CAGR of 6.00% in revenue terms over the forecast period. The number of seats sold is projected to reach 21.9 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 3.91%. The new HIA airport will support the market alongside the expansion of international routes, an increase in airline capacity and more codeshare agreements. Qatar is also well placed between developing continents such as Africa and Asia to take advantage of new business.
Total hotel revenue is expected to post a forecast-period CAGR of 5.74%. Tourism infrastructure developments, large-scale hotel development projects, and more business related visitors will support the market. Qatar is slowly being transformed from a destination for business travelers to a leisure, luxury and cultural destination. The QTAs promotional efforts and the 2022 Fifa World Cup are expected to aid its transformation.
