Top 12 Vendors in the Adventure Tourism Market From 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top 12 leading vendors in their recent global adventure tourism market report. The report only lists the key vendors in the market and does not present the market share of all vendors in the market.

Fluctuating global economic conditions, political unrest, diseases, and environmental disaster are some of the major reasons hampering the revenue growth of the global adventure tourism market. The adventure tourism activities are categorized into soft and hard adventures. In the last three years, only 3% of the total adventure tourists have participated in hard adventures and the rest preferred soft adventures.

New Zealand, one of the top-ranked countries in the adventure tourism market, is losing its reputation due to the frequent occurrence of adventure sport mishaps in the past five years. Failure to ensure the safety of the tourists has slowed down the international tourist arrivals in the country.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global adventure tourism market is highly competitive due to the presence of numerous operators in the market. Intense competition, consumer spending pattern, demographic trends, and frequent changes in consumer preferences present significant risks to operators. Operators are competing on the basis of types of adventure activities, service portfolio, pricing, government licensing, and safety measures. This competition is expected to intensify during the forecast period with an increase in product extensions.

Operators are also investing in designing, planning, developing, branding, expanding existing products and services, and acquiring new players in the market. Technological innovations and creativity play a significant role in driving market growth,” says Ujjwal Doshi, a lead media and entertainment services analyst from Technavio.

Therefore, to remain competitive in the market, vendors need not only to develop new ideas and technologies but also stay up-to-date with the emerging technologies and current affairs that could influence their service lines.
