BMI View: The short- and medium-term outlook for India's tourism market remains positive with steady organic growth prospects on the horizon. The government is placing emphasis on developing policies to promote the tourism industry and a number of initiatives - such as the introduction of electronic visas - are already yielding fruitful dividends. Furthermore, ongoing efforts to improve transportation infrastructure in the country will witness sustained investments in the railways network as mega railroad projects aimed at overhauling Indian Railways get underway. Key drivers of tourism sector growth will be growing international demand for tourism among crucial source markets, rising spending powers in the region and improvements in domestic and international transportation services. Furthermore, steady improvements to household income levels will bolster the country's massive domestic tourism market. India's wide range of attractions, large labour market and positive growth prospects mean it will continue to attract developers and we expect to see strong investment in the market.
