At a country level, GCC countries hospitality sectors are expected to range from 6 percent to 12 percent, with the UAE on the higher end in part due to Expo 2020 Dubai. GCC Countries are making significant investments into the development of tourism and hospitality infrastructure including airport expansions to increase the handling capacity of anticipated visitor inflow over the next two years. An increase in market penetration by mid-market hotels through 2022 is also predicted, along with the adoption of Airbnb-type renting models.
