Hospitality Real Estate Sector in United Kingdom - Growth, Trends, And Forecast (2020 - 2025)
Published: February 1, 2020 Content info: 120 Pages

The hospitality real estate sector in the United Kingdom is anticipated to record slower growth in the forecasted period. This is primarily due to uncertainty over fluctuating economic trends and pound strengthening which is dampening the business investment growth, and the impact of high levels of new hotel rooms that are going to be added, particularly in London and also in other UK cities. But looking at the bright side the same is attracting the leisure travel and tourism, as it continues to be supported by the weaker pound followed by the short-term tax cuts that were announced in the budget, accommodative lending terms and low-interest rates. The buoyant international tourism trends, the record numbers of visitors that are coming to the UK and the revenue that is generating through it are shaping the market. The study period showed mixed trends for business travel which is a quite profitable and vital segment of the hospitality real estate sector as the Brexit negotiations were at a constant pace for the entire period. Yet, despite the Brexit uncertainty many of the overseas investors continued to be active, especially investors from Europe and the Middle East and continued with their confidence in the UK hospitality real estate market. In order the strengthen the pound and to stabilize the economy over Brexit, the taxes are forecasted not likely to turn upward soon. The market is also recording a growing number of expansions/extensions, refurbishments and renovations and is contributing more than 15 percent to the new hotel supply, whereas the new constructions are forecasted to continue to form the majority of projects, making a greater of the overall supply.
