About this Report

Executive Summary


  • While below other developed markets, a record number of Americans now hold passports, allowing for growth in the weak outbound travel category. The US government estimates that there are 110 million US passport holders in the country, up from 48 million in 2000. While added security regulations on North American travel may have precipitated some of the increase, a slow but steady recovery in the US economy and consumer confidence have allowed the first sign of a rebound in outbound international travel.


  • Outbound international tourism trips are expected to increase by 11% over 2012-2017, surpassing the previous 2007 record high in 2015 and reaching 66.9 million in 2017. Outbound tourism expenditure is expected to rise to US$126.7 billion the same year.
