Germany Hospitality Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Germany Hospitality Market according to our research experts:

International Brands and their Chains are Occupying a Major Share of the Market

There used to be a huge difference between domestic and international brands in the past years. However, during 2018, the scenario changed. The international brand penetration increased by 15% and reached 131 while the domestic brand penetration was zero and remained at 89. The international chains added more rooms to their existing supply, which was observed to be 7%, whereas domestic chains managed to add 3% more. Mergers and acquisitions helped international brands to record such a growing number in 2018. The new hotel project construction pipeline is also more inclined toward international brand penetration. One of the leading international brands, IHG, announced its plans to add around 85 new IHG brand hotels in the country. If this plan is executed, it may double the brand’s supply in Germany.
