"Chile Tourism Report Q3 2015" is now available at Fast Market Research

We are forecasting tourist arrivals to reach 4.09mn in 2015, representing growth of 7%. This expansion of the tourism sector is creating opportunities in the accommodation sector, with international hotel groups currently under-represented.

BMI holds a positive short-term view on the tourism sector, with tourist arrivals forecast to grow by 7% in 2015, to 4.09mn arrivals. We believe this reflects Chile's geographical variety, positive economic and political fundamentals, and strong government support for the tourism sector. We expect this rate of growth to continue until 2018, when it will decline to 1.4%, before picking up again to 4.3% in 2019. We not believe that this lower forecast growth rate reflects any deterioration in Chile's attractive fundamentals, but more a natural moderation following a period of unusually high growth between 2014 and 2017.

With the tourism sector expanding at a high pace in the short term, our view is equally positive for the accommodation sector. BMI is forecasting the number of hotels in Chile to total 5,990 by 2019, up from 4,380. Over the same period, we expect hotel and restaurant industry value to rise from CLP2,248bn (USD3.63bn) to CLP2,385bn (USD4.18bn). We see particular opportunities for international hotel chains, which have historically not maintained an extensive presence in Chile. Beyond Santiago, we anticipate that international hotel chains could benefit from expanding in second-tier cities and particularly in the country's relatively under-developed northern and southern regions.
