Brazil is rich in natural heritage and vast biodiversity. However, the country’s tourist potential is affected by weaknesses in societal safety, infrastructure, and labor, among other factors. Though fluctuations in its local currency negatively affected outbound tourism, it led to growth in inbound tourism, which contributes significantly to the total travel and tourism of the country.
The country’s inbound tourism expenditure increased at a CAGR of 1.8%, from US$6,858.4 million in 2012 to US$7,357.8 million in 2016, and is expected to rise at a CAGR of 2.2%, from US$8,132.4 million in 2017 to US$8,886.6 million in 2021. Growth in tourist numbers was driven by the 2016 Rio Olympics, along with the depreciation of the local currency (Brazilian Real).

Growing investments in the hotel industry to drive hotel revenue over the forecast period (2017-2021)
The total revenue from hotels declined at a CAGR of -11.8% over 2012-2016, from US$18.6 billion in 2012 to US$11.2 billion in 2016.

However, it is forecast to increase at a CAGR of 2.1%, from US$12.1 billion in 2017 to US$13.1 billion in 2021 due to increase investments in the industry.
