The hotel sector in China: preferences

The Chinese hotel sector, especially hotel chains, has experienced steady growth in recent years.

According to Zhiding Yuemei Technology Co. this dynamism was generated by China‘s continued rapid economic growth and strong domestic travel demand.

Above all, the increase in the penetration rate of hotel chains and the improvement in consumption and transformation of consumer preferences stand out as key trends.

On the one hand, the total number of rooms offered by hotel chains increased with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.5% from 2016 to 2021 in China.

Meanwhile, the penetration rate of hotel chains stood at 34.4% in China’s hospitality market in 2021, much lower than the average penetration rate of hotel chains of 42.7% in the global market and the penetration rate of 73.0% in the more mature U.S. market.

But the penetration rate of chain operations in the Chinese hotel sector is expected to continue to increase.
