The hotel industry is growing in all global markets. We look at the biggest winners and the fullest pipelines.

Worldwide, the hotel industry will continue to grow in the coming years. Over 6,600 projects are planned and will bring over 1.4 million new rooms.

The biggest winners: top growth regions worldwide

With 2,333 hotels in the pipeline, Asia will remain the fastest growing market over the next few years. North America with 1,735 and Europe with 1,497 new projects are ranked 2nd and 3rd.

In the Middle East, 579 new openings are planned, while Africa and South America will see 288 and 216 new launches respectively.

Looking at the fastest-growing countries, it is unsurprising that the United States with 1,390 and China with 1,130 new hotels in the pipeline share first place.

Germany is in third place with 369 openings, closely followed by Great Britain with 315 new hotels. The United Arab Emirates have an impressive pipeline of 193 projects, especially considering the market’s already large offering.

While Australia and India will open 167 and 161 new hotels respectively, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia are opening 150 and 141 hotels each. With 130 upcoming projects, Mexico is the final member of the top ten growth markets worldwide.

Rapid growth in the world’s busiest cities

Dubai is the clear leader with 136 hotels and over 41,000 rooms in the pipeline. London is far behind with 85 projects but still in second place, followed by New York with 62 new openings.

Apart from the Big Apple, the American cities of Los Angeles (41) and Atlanta (38) are in the top ten. Three Chinese cities have also made it onto the list, namely Chengdu (53), Shanghai (48) and Hangzhou (38).

International brands set the tune

There are few surprises when looking at the fastest growing brands.

For the company’s 100-year anniversary Hilton is doubling down and leaves its competitors in the dust. Among the top ten growing brands, four are from Hilton.

The fastest growing one is Hilton Hotels & Resorts, with 146 new projects and 40,831 rooms. One of them is the Hilton Lagos Airport Hotel with 350 rooms. The impressive architecture and over 2,600 square meters of event space create a strong USP.

Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and DoubleTree are also expanding by 105, 101 and 98 new hotels. Of these, the Hilton Garden Inn Umhlanga Arch is especially interesting. It is due to open in autumn 2020 near King Shaka International Airport in Durban, South Africa.

Marriott International is pushing Marriott Hotels & Resorts with 105 openings, Four Points by Sheraton with 87 and Courtyard by Marriott with 86.

Among them, the Four Points by Sheraton Zhangzhou in Jiaomei, which will open this year, is notable. The 278-room hotel is ideal for business travellers thanks to its extensive meeting and events facilities.

IHG also has two chains in the top ten, namely Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts and Holiday Inn Express, while Radisson Hotels Group is represented only by Radisson Blu Hotels & Resorts.
