FitchConnect’s BMI service includes reports and daily analysis on 200 countries and regions of the world. Use the ‘Sectors’ menu at the top of the screen to view all content on Tourism. Country reports include a country-specific SWOT analysis and forecasts, along with information on major players.

Use the ‘Interactive Charts’ option on the ‘Data Tools’ menu to source and download industry specific data, such as number of hotels and establishments, and total arrivals and departures.

Reports updated quarterly.


IBISWorld provides in-depth analysis across the whole travel and tourism sector. UK, US and global reports are available, with each providing a detailed analysis of the current industry performance, competitive landscape, key players and future outlook.
