Asia-Pacific Wellness Tourism Economy

Released November 2018

Asia-Pacific’s wellness tourism market is the world growth leader. Revenues jumped from $111.2 billion in 2015 to $136.7 billion in 2017—and are forecast to grow a world-leading 13 percent a year through 2022 to reach $251.6 billion. (Which would make Asia-Pacific’s wellness travel market larger than North America’s today.) Wellness trips have grown an incredible 33 percent from 2015–2017, to reach 258 million annually. China and India rank #1 and #2 for growth: adding roughly 22 million and 17 million wellness trips respectively from 2015–2017. And both countries have shot up in the wellness tourism market rankings since 2013: China jumping from 11th to third today and India rising from 16th to seventh. You see eye-opening growth across the region: with the Philippines seeing its wellness tourism market grow 31 percent—Malaysia 29 percent—and Vietnam 23 percent—annually.
