About the Market

Luxury hospitality is a fast-growing market, especially with the growth of tourism and travel industry. The worldwide travel & tourism industry continued to see strong growth throughout 2015 and international tourist arrivals are predicted to grow by 3-4% per year, to reach 1.8 billion in 2030, according to the UNWTO report. Its long-term outlook ‘Tourism Towards 2030’ sees substantial potential for further growth coming from emerging economy destinations in Asia, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, growing at double the rate (+4.4% per annum), than the advanced economy destinations (+2.2% per year). In the past, raising a hotel company required enormous capital investment, but over the last two decades, many hotel groups have expanded by adopting an “asset light” model of management, rather than owning properties, by just franchising their brand to a third-party operator against a fee. Due to the continuous growth of the labor-intensive and productivity-reliant travel and tourism industry, the sector is expected to experience some difficulties in providing enough qualified talent for the forecasted 80 million new jobs created over the next ten years, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). Some of the major luxury hotels include Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Four Seasons Holdings Inc., InterContinental Hotels Group PLC, ITC Hotels Limited, The Indian Hotels Company Limited, Mandarin Oriental International Limited, Jumeirah International LLC, Shangri-La International Hotel Management Ltd., Kerzner International Resorts, Inc., and Marriott International Inc.

About the Geography                  

Nigeria is a presidential republic located in West Africa. It is the second largest economy and the highest producer of oil & gas in Africa. Nigeria has the third largest FDI stock in Africa,since the country remains Africa's largest producer of oil.

Nigeria has a privatized economy, low cost of labor, and abundant natural resources. The government promotes public-private partnerships and has liberal economic policies, which help maintain good relations with foreign firms. Being the seventh largest population in the world it is also the largest market in Africa. Foreign companies can own 100% of the business in all sectors except for industries critical to the nation’s security. Widespread corruption, poor infrastructure, terrorism, inefficient judicial system, and political instability have reduced the influx of foreign investment.

Despite these challenges, Nigeria received USD 80 billion in FDI in 2015. Bilateral trade agreements and treaties with many countries and tax incentives in all major industries have motivated investors to invest here.
