Hotel Gift Card Market to Reach US$ 133 Bn by 2030; Demand Taking a Hit Due to Covid-19 Pandemic Lockdowns and Restrictions


  • Published On : May 13, 2020

The hotel gift card market thrives on festivals and appreciation for employees. These cards are neither directly given to the customer or are given through online platforms like e-gifting. Gift cards are prepaid payment cards containing a specific amount of money, and render the same role as that of paper gift cards. The hotel gift card market is majorly driven by the younger generation across the globe, and product innovation along with hotel and entertainment trends are driving its growth. Increasing demand from developing countries is aiding overall market growth. However, with the current lockdown situation and quarantine measures due to outbreak of coronavirus, corporates and holiday makers have been impacted, which is hampering the growth of the hotel gift card market up to some extent.

The global hotel gift card market is projected to be valued at US$ 133 Bn by the end of 2030, expanding at a healthy CAGR of 14% over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.

Key Takeaways of Global Hotel Gift Card Market Study

  • North America is expected to be a prominent region in the global hotel gift card market, as increasing awareness of the e-Commerce sector will offer immense growth opportunities.
  • Innovative and discount offers with hotel gift cards are offered by companies, which, in turn, attracts middle-class customers toward purchasing them. On the other side, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, there has been a decrease in the sales of hotel gift cards, as consumers are shying away from any type of outdoor activities - a factor hindering market growth.
  • Increasing concerns regarding the environment have encouraged hotel gift card companies to manufacture ecofriendly and biodegradable gift cards. Thus, physical gift cards that are made from recycled PVC, wood, and other biodegradable materials are now trending. These, ecofriendly cards are attracting customers, which, in turn, is fueling the growth of the hotel gift card market.

“The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine measures taken by government bodies across the globe have drastically impacted the tourism industry. Hotel gift card market growth industry will be comparatively slower than the growth of most other sectors,” says a PMR analyst.
