UN Recognizes India as One of the Fastest-Growing Outbound Tourism Markets
India could become the world’s fourth-largest spender by 2030 as its travel industry grows post-COVID. The UN World Tourism Organization lists India, Indonesia, and Vietnam as fast-growing outbound tourist markets.
Indian outbound travel is predicted to reach US$ 60 billion by 2031, expanding 10.9 percent from 2023 to 2031. Foreign and local tourism in India have increased significantly. The Indian middle class will nearly double to 61 percent by 2047.
Indian travelers are expected to take five billion journeys by 2030, and their travel planning time is less than in other large markets. Indian outbound tourism is booming due to rising affluence, accessibility, and the appeal of tailored travel experiences, making the country a major player in the global travel sector.
The next generation of Indian visitors will be younger, varied, and seeking distinctive experiences. An estimated 50 million Indians will travel abroad by 2031, boosting the global tourism market.
