Dublin, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Business Travel Market by Service, Industry, Traveler: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast 2021-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global business travel market was valued at $695.9 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $2,001.1 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2021 to 2028.

Business travel is a division of regular tourism in which people travel for a business-oriented purpose. It includes transportation, accommodation, business work, entertainment, and other activities. Global travel & tourism industry is one of the largest industries with global economic contribution of more than $9000 billion. According to World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), the global travel & tourism sector contributed to around $9.2 trillion to the global GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2019. The business travel segment witnesses the highest growth rate in this industry, as employees working in multinational organizations are often required to travel across various countries for business purposes. In business tourism, destinations are commercial places, which are well-developed and suited for trade work.

Numerous companies operating in the global business travel market are trying to provide well-managed and cost-effective programs to the customers with the rise in demand for business travel management. The business travel market growth is driven by the expansion of the travel & tourism industry, surge in government initiatives for the development of meetings, incentives, conferences, and events (MICE) segment & small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) sector, and increase in globalization of businesses. However, surge in adoption of advanced technology such as video conferencing hampers the market growth, as it is cost-effective and less time-consuming as compared to travelling. Conversely, increase in infrastructural investment and rapid growth in the travel retail market are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the business travel market.

The outbreak of COVID-19 emerged as a major threat to the global travel & tourism industry that severely deteriorated the business travel industry. The pandemic led to cancellation of almost all the major business travel activities and MICE events across the globe. Moreover, the wide spread penetration of online video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Google Meet, due to travel restrictions is expected to compete with the players operating in the global business travel market in the future. The adoption of video conferencing platforms is serving the needs of many companies for meetings and conferences and is also adopted by them as a cost control measure as companies are avoiding the costly business travel expenses. In this way, COVID-19 has changed the competitive landscape of the global business travel market and is anticipated to have a long-term effect.
