Driver, Trend, and Challenge

The strong global economic recovery and an increasing number of high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) in developed and developing economies are driving the global cruise tourism market growth. The growth is attributed to an increase in domestic consumption and trade and an uptick in investments since the global economic recession in 2008. Moreover, the increase in the number of working women has further contributed to the high income levels of individuals and their families. Such factors are expected to support the market growth in the coming years.

Growing consumer adoption of repositioning cruising, owing to tourers' inclination toward exploring different destinations by availing best cruise deals, is a trend that is expected to impact the industry positively during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the availability of cost-effective one-way flights, the inclusion of exotic itineraries, and cost advantages associated with repositioning cruising compared with regular.

The rising environmental concerns are challenging the global cruise tourism market growth. This is due to the presence of many passengers and crew members. For instance, an average one-week cruise voyage with 2000 to 2500 passengers along with crew members generates around 2,00,000 plus gallons of sewage stream, including oily bilge water, greywater, and hazardous waste. Such factors are projected to hamper the growth of the current market during the forecast period.
