Income levels in Asia have surged since the past decade, with the region’s per capita GDP almost doubling, from USD 3,190 in 2005 to USD 5,960 in 2015.

The luxury travel market is growing, backed by consumer spending, growing Chinese millennials, and expansion of the tourism sector.

The Asian consumers are rapidly spending on travel based on celebration & special events strongly supported by increased disposable income.  In addition, the rising affluence and a relaxation of visa restrictions on Chinese travellers by the Chinese government are rapidly boosting the market growth.

As the working populace is growing with a greater number of women in working-class, consumer’s expenditure on travel is on a rise. As a result, the market has seen an upsurge in more women travellers, driving the market growth. As per the statistics, in- terms of future spending options, luxury travel has become popular and a top priority of most of the people. To capitalize and attract more consumers, market leaders are formulating unique strategies to target the growing middle-class segment.
