September 10, 2018: The global wellness tourism market is expected to reach a value of approximately USD 972.5 billion by 2023, as per a new report published by Mordor Intelligence LLP. The market is expected to grow owing to factors, such as the growing proactive interest of people toward health and wellness, emerging middle class, rising disposable incomes, and the ever increasing consumer interest in travel, health, and new experiences. But, the consumers’ perception of the wellness industry as a luxury travel sector is restraining the growth prospects of the market.

The mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and stress, are becoming more common among people, especially the young. With the growing awareness regarding health and wellbeing among people, the wellness tourism is snowballing across the world. Many programs related to the wellness of people are being introduced physically and mentally. For instance, sports, yoga, and meditation, are gaining momentum as tourist attractions. These programs are leading to the development of responsibility toward maintaining good health. This growing awareness and interest among people to be fit combined with their health routines during travelling, are, in turn, propelling the demand for the wellness tourism market.
