Hotel & Restaurant

The Indian hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key industries driving growth of the services sector in India. It has evolved into an industry that is sensitive to the needs and desires of people. The fortunes of the hospitality industry have always been linked to the prospects of the tourism industry and tourism is the foremost demand driver of the industry. The Indian hospitality industry has recorded healthy growth fuelled by robust inflow of foreign tourists as well as increased tourist movement within the country and it has become one of the leading players in the global industry. Foreign tourist arrivals (FTAs) into the country increased steadily from 2002 to 2008. FTAs dipped in 2009, due to the global economic slowdown; however, the impact on the Indian industry was much lower than that on the global counterparts. FTAs are expected to increase in 2010. On the other hand, domestic tourist movement within the country was the highest in 2009.

The prospects for the hotel industry in India are bright. With revival in the global economy, international tourist inflow into the country is expected to rise. Additionally, hosting of international sports events and trade fairs and exhibitions in the country are expected to aid both inflow of international tourists and domestic tourist movement.

While there is immense potential, concerns for growth of the industry remain. These include high real estate prices in the country, security threats, shortage of manpower, high tax structure, and non-uniformity in taxes.

Opportunities

The fortunes of the hospitality industry are closely linked to the tourism industry and hence tourism is one of the most important growth drivers. In addition, all factors that aid growth in the tourism industry also apply to the hospitality industry. The Indian hospitality industry has recorded healthy growth in recent years owing to a number of factors:

Growth drivers

The upcoming industrial parks, manufacturing facilities and ports across the country provide a good opportunity for budget and mid-market hotels. Although around 89,500 additional rooms are expected to come up in India in the next five years, the supply of branded/quality rooms in India is much lower compared to other countries across the globe. Hence, there exists huge potential for investors and operators across all the segments of hotel industry in India. The increase in room inventories is expected to make the hotel industry more competitive and hotels would be under pressure to maintain quality and service levels at competitive prices. Competitive pricing amongst the branded hotels along with the addition of more budget and mid -market hotels would make the hotel industry cost competitive with other destinations. This would aid the growth of segments such as MICE, amongst others

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It recorded healthy growth in the past few years, at more than 9% each during FY06-FY08. Despite the global economic slowdown, the Indian economy clocked growth of 6.7% and 7.4% in Fy09 and FY10 respectively. Attractiveness of India has encouraged foreign players to set up their operational facilities in the country. Domestic industries have also made heavy investments to expand their facilities through greenfield and brownfield projects.
