However, it is expected that the volume will expand over the forecast period, recording a CAGR of 1.03% to reach 14.0 million by 2017. Domestic demand will be mainly driven by strong economic growth and government initiatives to promote tourism in the country. Over the forecast period, domestic tourist expenditure is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.14% to reach NOK52.2 billion (US$9.0 billion) by 2017.- A solid expansion in inbound tourism occurred during the review period, as the number of international arrivals increased from 4.3 million in 2008 to 5.1 million in 2012, at a CAGR of 4.04%. International arrivals rose by 9.7% in 2010 and a further 4.1% in 2011, compared to the slight decline of 0.02% posted in 2009. It is expected that inbound tourist volumes will continue to increase over the forecast period, at a CAGR of 3.80%.

In 2009, hotel revenue declined by 4.8%, due to the weak economic conditions globally. However, with the improvements in economic conditions, the hotel market recovered, growing at a rate of 4.2% in 2010 and 5.8% in 2011. The overall growth in revenue during the review period can be attributed to the large domestic and inbound tourist volumes.

At the end of the forecast period, the contribution of non-airport car rentals is expected to decrease slightly to 53.70% in 2017.- Revenue for travel intermediaries is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 5.55% to reach NOK48.2 billion (US$8.3 billion) in 2017, driven by an increase in leisure travel, rising business and conference-related travel. The online travel channels share of the travel intermediaries market is expected to increase from 46.77% in 2012 to 60.39% in 2017.
