HVS Shanghai Announces publication of Taiwan Market Outlook: Hotel Market Poised for Growth “Signs of Rejuvenation Sparkle in Taiwan’s Hotel Sector”

HVS Shanghai has released the Taiwan Market Outlook: Hotel Market Poised for Growth.

HVS Shanghai has released the Taiwan Market Outlook: Hotel Market Poised for Growth. According to this research, limited high-end hotel supply in Taiwan, coupled with a positive tourist arrivals outlook, provide opportunities for Taiwan’s hotel market to bloom.

Since the signing of Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) between mainland China and Taiwan, mainland Chinese tourist arrivals to Taiwan have surged, registering a constant annual growth rate (CAGR) of 63% between 2008 and 2010. This number is expected to grow as further relaxation on the travel restrictions on mainland Chinese tourists is administered. According to the Taiwan Tourism Bureau (TTB) total visitors to Taiwan are expected to reach 10 million by 2016.

In 2012, Taipei witnessed the vigour that W Taipei brought into the Taiwan hotel scene. “As one of the few new hotels-- and a management contract-based hotel -- W Taipei may inspire more management contracts in Taiwan as developers and owners see the benefits,” comments Jonathan Jaw, Associate at HVS Shanghai, and author of the Taiwan Market Outlook. “Furthermore, due to the shortage of upscale hotel supply in Taichung and Kaohsiung provinces, and an improved tourism infrastructure, we may see more new properties in the near future.”

“Supply growth is imminent as tourist arrivals increase at the fast pace it observed in the past. We are finally seeing a robust energy in the Taiwan hotel market.”
