Published on Jul 01, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Business Travel Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the India business travel market reached a value of US$ 31.7 Billion in 2021. Business travel is generally undertaken for work or business purposes, including meetings and conferences, business expansion, employee training and development, promotion of products and services and strengthening company relations. It involves a wide range of services, such as planning and booking, sourcing and procurement, measuring and reporting and account management. It is usually paid by the organization via in-house travel departments and external service providers that include meals, airfare and lodging, transport services and expenses for communication devices. In India, there has been a considerable increase in the popularity of business travel due to a considerable decrease in airfares on account of the introduction of new airlines.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
