Singapore has been recording a rising number of travelers from the past decade. In 2009, the total number of international arrivals was around 9.6 million which almost doubled in 2019 to approximately 19.1 million. According to a report by DBS Bank, there has been a gap in the supply of hotels or different forms of accommodations to match the growing number of travelers to the country. The total number of visitors per country is growing at an average of 6% from the past 10 years whereas, the hotel room supply is growing at only 4.2% especially in the past four years which is challenging the tourism industry in the country. However, in order to reduce this gap, the country is making efforts to increase its hotel project construction pipeline which holds various projects which are at different stages of construction of which more than 90% of new hotel rooms are slated for opening in 2021-2023 are upper-midscale and luxury hotels. Also according to the latest rankings of ease of doing business, by World Bank in 2019, Singapore has been ranked second in it which further explains the opportunity for hotel industry expansion.

Rising Number of International Visitors are Driving the Market

The number of international tourist arrivals to Singapore has been increasing since 2000 with only 3 instances of contraction which were short-lived. Even with increasing competition from Indonesia, Vietnam and, Thailand, the number of visitor arrivals to the country is expected to be moderate and continue to grow at healthy rates in the forecast period owing to the Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) marketing campaigns to attract tourists from various locations across the world. For instance, STB has proved successful in attracting tourists from tier - II and tier - III cities of China.
