Indian Tourist Growth Stalls Amidst Spate of Gang Rapes
The pace of foreign tourist growth in India has accelerated rapidly over the past five years. 1.96 million visitors arrived in India in 2008, a number which grew to 2.43 million by 2012. Unfortunately, confidence among holidaymakers has been shaken by a spate of gang rapes across the country.
As a result, growth has almost ground to a halt. Between 2009 and 2010, foreign tourist visits to India grew 13.8 percent. The pace of this growth slowed down slightly to 9 percent between 2011 and 2012. Between 2012 and 2013, it slackened off dramatically with an increase of just 1.8 percent.
This chart shows the number of visitors and percentage growth in foreign tourism in India (January to April).
