Despite its recent economic slowdown, air travel demand in China remains high and the country is expected to become the world’s largest air travel market by 2020, according to Beroe Inc., a procurement intelligence firm.
Meanwhile, global airline prices are expected to grow by 2.6 percent with an increase in oil prices, competitive pressure from the shortage of pilots, potential trade wars, and increasing fare segmentation to improve yield.
“Chinese economy witnessed a recent slowdown, but is expected to remain the largest business travel market, with a sustained high growth rate. However, growing trade tensions between China and the U.S. could potentially impact the business travel between the two countries,” Beroe Inc’s Valekumar Krishnan, Practice Head -- APAC and Middle East.
The global market for corporate travel is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5-5.5 percent to reach a net value of $1.7 trillion by 2021. The travel and expense market is also projected to reach $2.5 billion by 2020, with Concur expected to be the leading market player. Factors such as a need for enhanced operational efficiency, visibility, and transparency are the major growth drivers, the report suggested.
