Global travel and tourism sector deal activity down by 32.7% YoY during January-November 2023

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals that the deal activity within the travel and tourism sector for all the regions and most of the countries suffered setbacks during January-November 2023.

A total of 666 deals (mergers & acquisitions (M&A), private equity and venture financing) were announced in the travel and tourism sector globally during January-November 2023, which is a year-on-year (YoY) decline of 32.7% compared to the announcement of 989 deals during the same period in the previous year, finds GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The global travel and tourism sector persistently exhibited a declining trend in deal activity throughout the year. Geo-political tensions, ongoing wars and associated macroeconomic challenges largely affected the deal-making sentiments in the sector.”

North America witnessed 43.2% decline in deals volume during January-November 2023 compared to the same period in the previous year. Similarly, the number of deals announcement in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and South and Central American regions too fell by 36.7%, 15.2%, 20.5%, and 42.3%, respectively, YoY during January-November 2023.

Meanwhile, key global markets such as the US, the UK, China, Japan, France, South Korea, Australia, Spain and the Netherlands witnessed YoY decline in deals volume by 44.1%, 29.5%, 4.5%, 46.9%, 20.7%, 26.7%, 30%, 56.8% and 35%, respectively.

Bose adds: “All the deal types under the coverage also recorded YoY decline in volume during January-November 2023.”

For instance, the number of M&A deals declined by 34.6% while the volume of private equity deals and venture financing deals registered YoY decline of 31% and 26.3%, respectively.



Note: Historic data may change in case some deals get added to previous months because of a delay in disclosure of information in the public domain.
