As 2009 is coming to a close, the big question on the minds of many is the outlook for 2010 and 2011. Travel’s slump appears to have hit bottom in 2Q09, as transaction volumes declined and prices flattened by the end of the first half. Some segments are showing modest indications of an upswing in the second half.
PhoCusWright’s U.S. Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition reveals key trends affecting the recovery of the U.S. travel market. The recovery will likely be slow, bringing only incremental improvements over several years. As a result, PhoCusWright projects very modest growth of 1% for the total travel market in 2010, as consumers and corporations gradually increase their travel spending. Online travel will continue to benefit from its positioning as a discount and distressed-inventory channel amid soft overall demand and a weak pricing environment for travel suppliers, especially hotels. Online travel will grow 5% in 2010, far outpacing the total market.
