Destination Market Insights: Morocco – Analysis of source markets, infrastructure and attractions, risks and opportunities

Summary

Morocco is one of Africa’s leading tourist markets, with more than 10 million visitors in 2016. The country aims to grow the industry significantly, with the Moroccan Department of Tourism’s 2020 Tourism Strategy hoping to double the size of the tourist industry, and make Morocco one of the top 20 tourist destinations in the world. As tourist numbers rise quickly, there has been a consequent surge in hotel construction. Between 2016 and 2021, the number of hotels in Morocco is expected to increase by 30.8%.

France is by far the largest inbound market for tourists to Morocco, accounting for 36.1% of arrivals in 2016, followed by Spain (14.5%). Similarly, France is the largest outbound market for Moroccans. The main purpose for tourism to Morocco is currently visiting friends and relatives (VFR), accounting for 48.2% of arrivals in 2016.

In 2016, 74.7% of arrivals were from Europe, with the largest inbound markets being France, Spain, and the UK. However, the country has recently attempted to diversify its inbound market, and in 2016 witnessed a significant jump from tourist markets outside of Europe, including China, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and Russia.

Morocco’s largest inbound markets (France, followed by Spain, the UK and Belgium) have been badly affected by the recent occurrences of terror attacks in Europe. Witnessing these events in their home countries could instill a higher level of cautiousness in travelers when deciding where to visit; if tourists from these countries view Morocco as unsafe this will negatively impact Morocco’s tourist industry.
