Global Ecotourism Market to Grow at 12% During 2024-2032, Impelled by the Growing Popularity of Immersive Travel

September 27, 2021 | Other Reports

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Ecotourism Market Report by Traveler Type (Solo, Group), Age Group (Generation X, Generation Y, Generation Z), Sales Channel (Travel Agent, Direct), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global ecotourism market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% during 2024-2032. Ecotourism is a form of travel that aims to conserve the environment and sustain the well-being of local people. It involves traveling to a fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural area where the flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the attraction centers. Ecotourism holidays are intended to have a lower impact than commercial mass tourism as it aims to ensure the protection of the local flora and fauna. In recent years, ecotourism has gained traction as it educates tourists and creates awareness about the social conditions while honoring the local culture, providing financial assistance, and promoting recycling and energy efficiency.

Global Ecotourism Market Trends: 

The market is driven by the growing environmental consciousness and expanding tourism sector. The rising awareness regarding the adverse effects of tourism, such as soil erosion, increasing pollution levels, and loss of natural habitat, is escalating the demand for ecotourism. Besides this, with rapid urbanization and increasing disposable income levels, there has been a rise in immersive travel, solo trips, and outdoor recreational activities. In addition to this, the introduction of niche activities, such as bird watching, wildlife tourism, and coral reef explorations, is attracting many travelers, thus contributing to the market growth. Besides this, the market is also fueled by public-private partnerships in the form of subsidized airfares, improved transport capabilities and ease of access. Furthermore, key players are promoting ecotourism in natural, untainted, and pristine areas that facilitate the preservation of natural resources and accommodation of tourists without causing environmental damage.
