Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "China Hotel Market Report, 2006-2007 (English Version)" report to their offering.

After twenty years of rapid growth in the economy, China has now become one of the world’s most attractive destinations for tourists, which means great opportunities for the development of hotels. China, along with its entry into WTO, will further open its tourism market; meanwhile, the negative affects from excessive expansion in the 90’s have been gradually digested by the market and the hotel industry is recovering. A new investment peak in the hotel industry appeared in the 2004-2005 period: international hotel groups surged into the Chinese market on a large scale while domestic hotels reacted harshly.

China had 120.29 million inbound travellers in 2005, increasing by 10.3% over 2004. Over 46.81 million of the inbound travellers stayed overnight, increasing by 12.1%. With further execution of reform and open policy, the national economy will continue to develop rapidly and peoples living standard will also improve. China is pacing up towards internationalization, for example the Beijing Olympic Games, Shanghai World Expo and Guangzhou Asian Sports Meeting are to be held soon, all of those factors are creating a good environment for hotel industry development in China.

Generally speaking, the hotel industry shows a strong momentum in China. IBFCMF of all five-star hotels in China increased by 42%; as for four- and three-star hotels, the increase rate was 52% and 24% separately.
