  • Hospitality & leisure , European Cities Hotel Forecast 2015 and 2016: PwC
    At the other end of the scale Geneva Zurich and Moscow s hotel sectors are not best placed to grow as the removal of the Swiss franc cap and the ongoing geopolitical crisis Moscow cast long shadows Moscow sees a decline driven by occupancy falls in 2015 as a result of international sanctions Geneva and Zurich also see declines 2016 forecasts In 2016 the most positive RevPAR stories are Dublin Madrid and London In Dublin a lack of new supply and strong ADR growth over 7 is driving up RevPAR Geneva and Zurich are expected to see further marginal declines What s driving growth It is a mixture of ADR and occupancy growth but in many top performing cities like London or Paris which operate at around over 80 occupancy it s ADR driving the most growth The strongest ADR growth in 2015 and 2016 is found in Dublin around 7 each year London is also expected to see robust gains in both years 3 and 4 4 respectively Madrid Edinburgh and Barcelona also see growth on top of growth Rome Lisbon and Porto see healthy occupancy growth in 2015 Rome Madrid and Milan see solid growth in 2016 What could cast a shadow over growth The changing balance of global growth and geopolitical risks will determine the global economic outlook for 2015 and this will have implications for travel and hotels in the cities analysed The supply pipeline also has the potential to accelerate further in some hot spot cities and this could impact trading should demand weaken 5 predictions and their implications for hoteliers in 2015 1 Politicians strike a global climate deal in Paris this year In 2009 troubled by the global economic slowdown politicians failed to agree a strong global climate deal in Copenhagen as they worried about the impacts on jobs and investment This year as they head to the UN Climate Summit in Paris a growing global economy may alleviate some of these concerns At the national level lower prices will also give governments the opportunity to implement carbon pricing or remove fossil fuel subsidies with less resistance from business and consumers These alongside vocal commitments made by many governments and businesses in 2014 make striking an international deal to curb emissions increasingly more likely Implications for European Hotels Carbon taxes could limit reductions in flight prices If politicians at the UN Climate Summit take this opportunity to implement carbon taxes the market a major global emitter will likely be negatively affected Both the introduction of carbon taxes and the removal of fossil fuel subsidies would lead to increased costs to airlines pushing prices in the opposite direction to lower oil prices However we expect any measures would likely be introduced gradually and are unlikely to cause a major impact on the hotels and travel sector whilst oil prices remain low 2 US recovery to pick up In what would be quite a coup for Obama given criticism over his stewardship of the economy during his first term we expect US growth to be its fastest since 2005 One of the Americans oft quoted economic metrics unemployment fell during 2014 to below 6 and we expect this figure combined with lower oil prices to contribute to rising household consumption We are projecting economic growth of 3 2 in 2015 and for the US to contribute around 23 of global GDP growth in 2015 This would represent its largest contribution in a single year since the financial crisis Implications for European Hotels Hotels will benefit from rising US household consumption Expectations of the fastest US growth since 2005 coupled with unemployment now below 6 and low oil prices mean households in the US will have rising disposable incomes In addition US tourists purchasing power in Europe has increased thanks to the recent dollar appreciation These two forces should together encourage trips abroad and release the pent up demand for travel from the recession Increased US tourism to Europe will be great news for European hotels in 2013 US tourists spent 38 million nights in hotels 2 of all nights booked and spent 246 per night France and Germany will be particularly affected as US tourists account for 13 and 10 of nights spent respectively 3 The contribution of the BRICs to global economic growth will fall for the 2nd year in a row but growth in Sub Saharan Africa will continue to outpace the global economy We still expect China to make a major contribution to global growth in 2015 but its projected GDP growth rate of 7 2 would be its slowest since 1990 and its high debt levels pose some downside risks to growth In Russia we expect GDP to shrink in 2015 on the back of low oil prices and economic sanctions while in Brazil we expect growth to be sluggish at only around 1 On the other hand Sub Saharan Africa should continue to outpace global growth for the 15th year in a row We expect the combined GDP of the region s 4 largest economies Nigeria South Africa Angola and Ethiopia to overtake that of Italy in 2015 in purchasing powerparity terms Implications for European Hotels Shifting focus to Sub Saharan Africa With France Italy and Switzerland in the top 10 most travelled to destinations by Chinese tourists news of the slowing down of BRIC growth could be a cause for concern for European hotels Tourists from China tend to spend a large amount on for example luxury shopping and hotel accommodation As they see their slowest GDP growth rate since 1990 there may be some concerns for Europe However Russia s economy will be of greater concern this year In 2012 Russia was the fastest growing tourism market in Europe Now with the current economic problems this is expected to change France and Germany have 3 and 4 of their tourists coming from Russia and so a slowdown in numbers will be bad news for hoteliers In the long
