Cruise market will grow with new ships

It is expected that the world cruise industry, which will incorporate 75 new ships in the next five years, will experience rapid growth in the 2022-2026 period and exceed the income band of 4 billion Euros by 2026.

2026 forecast

According to the study, it was stated that the cruise tourism market will experience a serious growth in the 2022-2026 period. While the strong global economic recovery was effective in this forecast, it was emphasized that high-income passengers would drive the growth in cruise tourism. On the other hand, the tendency of tourists to visit more than one destination on the same trip is expected to increase.

75 new ships are coming

Over the next five years, it is expected to add 75 new ships to the cruise industry.

According to Cruise Industry News, by 2027, shipping companies are expected to purchase up to 75 vessels, 24 of which will run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). Thus, the current world fleet of 270 ships will increase by 27%. The total value of the new additions to the world fleet will be $48.5 billion, while 170,000 new locations will be added. With the existing fleet, 29.7 million passengers were transported in 2019. (Technavio)
