Singapore Tourism: Sector Forecast and Spend Analysis – Drivers and Restraints
The Singapore government’s initiative in branding the country’s story has deeper roots in its cultural and historical identity. Such brand stories are giving wider scope to appeal to the more demanding consumers. This factor is particularly creating promising growth in the tourism sector in Singapore.

Another notable effort by the Singapore government includes targeting the right tourists – working millennials who include young single tourists or couples who are employed, families with kids, senior citizens, and business travellers. This is creating robust development in the growth of Singapore tourism. Apart from governmental initiatives there are various other factors that are creating robust development in the country’s tourism sector.

Singapore is safe, clean and efficient. It is one of the safest cities because of its stringent laws. There are no religious or racial tensions. More importantly citizens of Singapore can communicate in English, and tourists therefore do not have to face any language barriers. All these factors are attracting a large number of tourists and as a result, tourism is growing at a very fast rate in Singapore. However, there are few things that are restricting tourists from visiting Singapore.

One of the main restraints is the cost factor. Singapore is very expensive. Compared to other Asian countries, hotels, shopping, taxis and eating is very expensive in Singapore. Tourists also feel that the beaches in Singapore are not happening as in Australia. These factors are hampering the growth of the Singapore tourism industry.
