In India, the tourism sector is expected to grow 6.9% annually to $460 bn by 2028, which is 9.9% of the GDP, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). Traveling has undergone a major transformation over the past two years since the post-pandemic era began. The National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) reports that tourism in India won’t return to pre-pandemic levels until 2026.
While India’s travel industry continued to rebuild after the second wave, more people are looking forward to traveling in 2022. This sentiment is supported by a vaccination drive as well as complying with all Covid protocols – that made it easier for travelers to get back on track.
The recent domestic reopening of various locations in India saw high demand for short-stay opportunities including workaways, staycations, driveaways, and those intended for affordable luxury. We will be following the biscations trend (working from a resort), which is gaining traction.
The best infrastructure in India, as well as the most competent healthcare professionals, make it an ideal destination for dental and medical treatments for international travelers. By 2025, medical tourism in India is expected to reach $50 billion.
