Market Segments
Segmentation of market in
- low price/bad quality mass market
For the “Europe-from-the-Coach-Window” mass market there is still a queue of
at least 100 million Chinese waiting for their turn to get their photo in front
of the Eiffel tower.
and - “FIT” / “Semi-FIT”, ”MICE” high-end market
"We didn't want to go on a group tour since these can be very rushed, taking in too
many countries over a short period of time. We think we handle independent travel
quite well since we were all in Singapore last Spring Festival when we also went to
Thailand. We think we will be able to get around Italy by ourselves.”
(China Daily 28- 01-2011)

China Outbound Tourism 2011:
Good news – not only because of quantitative growth
but also because of qualitative developments:
1.Political support for outbound tourism
2.Greater interest in in-depth travels
3.Easy access to passports and hard currency
Exhibitors Workshop April 12, 2011
Powered by
China Outbound Tourism Research Institute
China Outbound Tourism 2011:
1. Political support for outbound tourism by
Chinese Central Government:
• On November 25th 2009, a State Council executive meeting
chaired by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao adopted the “Statement
on Accelerating the Tourism Industry Development” which
declared a planned annual increase of 9% for outbound tourism.
• In the 12th Five-Year Plan for the first time the development of
outbound tourism is actively promoted instead of being
hindered by the Chinese government.

China Outbound Tourism 2011:
2. Greater interest in in-depth travels:
“… one of the remarkable characteristics of China tourism in 2010 was the detailed market
segmentation. When the normal tourism market was still the main component of tourism
section, special interest groups were forming as well. Some special attractive long-distance
and niche market focused tourism products which were offered by tour operators both
inside and outside China turned out to be very successful.”
Prof. Zhang Guangrui

offer opportunities to attract Chinese visitors

3. Less bureaucratic problems from the Chinese side:
• 140 ADS agreements with all important destinations signed
• Access to passports and hard currency relatively easy
• Individual tourist visa agreements with Asian and some
European countries
• More choice of destinations and tours than ever

China Outbound Tourism 2011:
But complaints about many destinations:
• Visa problems still existing
• (Perceived) Safety problems given extensive media
attention in China
• Quality level often not according to Chinese
expectations
• Not enough visible dedication to Chinese market
