Wellness Tourism Market

Traveling to places and facilities, such as hospitals, clinics, wellness SPAs, fitness centers, and wellness resorts, to enrich the mental as well as physical health is a part of the lifestyle of people now-a-days. This shift in choice makes way for wellness tourism, which involves the promotion of health and personal well-being through various physical, psychological, and spiritual activities. It also includes various services such as transport, lodging, food & beverage, shopping, and others. 

Inclination of tourists to socialize with local people and learn about their nature and culture to maintain healthy lifestyle, reduce stress, prevent disease, and enhance their wellbeing resulted in increase of number of such travelers, which, in turn, is expected to drive the wellness tourism market growth.

With the increase in e-literacy, the adoption of mobiles, computers, and other networking devices is rising notably. Online travel service providers aim to ease travel planning and bookings for travelers, as consumers are gradually shifting from traditional reservation to online reservation. Moreover, quick & convenient flight and hotel bookings, activity booking, rise in customer trust in online payment, and ability to compare various available adventure travel options drive the online travel industry growth, which, in turn, fuels the growth of the market.  

Growing terrorist attacks, political unrest, and civil riots acts as a threat for the future growth of the travel industry. Attributed to the risk associated and warnings issued by government authorities to avoid such travel, the tourism industry has witnessed decrease in travel booking. Traveler’s safety concerns act as a major setback for travel destinations with higher safety risk. For instance, growing terrorist attacks across the globe has spread fear among people; hence, they have started to opt for destinations, which are less exposed to terrorism and political unrest. Change in travel destination due to safety issue acts as a threat to the growth of the overall wellness tourism market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted nearly every consumer category, influencing new consumer behaviors, stifling entire industries, and inspiring growth in others, including pockets of the health sector. Rise of telemedicine, at-home fitness, and digital therapy has driven the growth of the wellness tourism market during the pandemic. The key players in sectors, such as telehealth and home fitness, have made significant gains throughout the pandemic, shaping the future of consumer behavior and the wellness sector. 

According to the wellness tourism market analysis, the market is segmented on the basis of service type, location, travelers type, and region. By service type, the market is divided into transport, lodging, food & beverage, shopping, activities & excursion, and others.
