Abounding with opportunities and innovative developments, Asia is where it’s all happening. 

The Asia Pacific area is striving to become the growth leader for the international hotel and tourism industry. The vast investment opportunities throughout the continent and rising demand from domestic and international travellers uphold the attention for Asia Pacific becoming the centre of the hospitality world.



Asia Pacific maintains the largest pipeline in the world

The region opened +100,000 rooms in the last 12 month, of which 24,000 rooms became available in the first quarter of 2014. Despite the increase in supply (+3.4%), Demand saw an even stronger growth with +4.2%, along with a positive occupancy growth rate in Q1.

Asia Pacific overall pipeline is growing by 15% compared to the existing rooms count. This translates to +500,000 rooms under contract. APAC is therefore the strongest continent in terms of pipeline room count. Approximately half of the pipeline is currently under construction, of which +160,000 rooms are in North-Eastern Asia.

China remains the country with the largest pipeline under contract (+280,000), followed by India and Indonesia. 
Asia Pacific's Performance Outlook

Coming from a strong base in 2012, Asia Pacific closed 2013 with a negative RevPAR growth of -4.7%; and performance had by Q1 2014 shifted to -2.9% compared to the same time period the previous year.

In 2013, South East Asia achieved the highest levels in the three main KPIs for all of Asia. A general positive RevPAR trend can be seen in the Upper Upscale and Luxury class for major tourism destinations.

According to STR Global, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney are expected to grow RevPAR in 2014, which is mainly driven by increasing ADR.
