Middle East Online Travel Overview Second Edition
Between 2011 and 2014, the Middle East lost an estimated US$4.5 billion in annual travel revenue in the wake of the Arab Spring. In the coming three years however, the affected markets will start to recover. Offline bookings will rebound from their fall and regain a high share. The Middle East travel industry is forecast to rise to $98 billion by 2017, but from $71.8 billion in 2014. Online penetration is expected to catch up to Asia Pacific, and reach 32% by 2017.
