2012-10-28 15:22:21 - New Consumer Goods market report from Business Monitor International: "Hungary Tourism Report Q4 2012"
The Hungary Tourism Report considers the current state of the tourism sector and assesses its potential over the next five years. Although growth slowed markedly at the end of 2011, the year was favourable for foreign tourism in Hungary. Growth in tourist arrivals (non-residents staying at least one night) was the strongest for many years, up by almost 8% on 2010. By contrast, domestic tourism demand was weak. BMI continues to expect a slowdown in foreign tourism growth in 2012, largely due to the grim outlook facing the eurozone - the major source region. Recovery in the tourism sector is anticipated from 2013.
The report analyses hospitiality sector data on overnight stays by both foreign and domestic tourists, as well as
reviewing key source markets in the accommodation sector. Aside from the traditional spa and health tourism sectors (a motivational factor for about 15% of foreign tourists), conference tourism - which recorded a strong rebound in 2010 - is also considered. Medical tourism is another burgeoning area. The bankruptcy of Malev Hungarian Airlines in February 2012 also presents opportunities for rival carriers.

Figures for Q112 show growth in foreign tourist arrivals was a modest 3% year-on-year (y-o-y). More recent data from the hospitality sector for January-May are more positive, particularly in rleation to growth in tourism from Europe. Key factors underlying the data are a turnaround in German tourism to Hungary (after declining in the previous three years), and buoyant growth from Russia and Italy.
Increased Russian and Italian tourists accounted for about 30% of the overall improvement in international tourism nights in all accommodation establishments in the five-month period.
Over the last quarter, BMI has revised the following forecasts and views:
* BMI has raised slightly its growth forecasts for foreign tourist arrivals in 2012 and 2013 to 3.8% and 4.4% respectively.
* Our real GDP growth forecast for the eurozone has been lowered slightly for 2012 to -0.6% from -0.5%, rising to only 0.9% growth (down from 1.2%) in 2013.
* BMI believes recent strong growth from key source markets partly reflects tourists seeking alternative holiday destinations due to the Arab Spring.
* BMI forecasts the Hungarian forint to appreciate modestly from its current position, ending the year at HUF275.00/EUR, and to go further towards HUF272.00/EUR by the end of 2013.
* We forecast growth in the number of foreign attendees at international conferences in Hungary is likely to remain subdued in 2012, as it was in 2011.
