TTC Special: Wellness tourism improves health and economy

By Frank Martin

If you live in the Caribbean or like the islands tourism offers you will easily recognize that the well-being that is enjoyed on its beaches mainly improves vacations.

The most beautiful Caribbean places not only have the blue sea, which perhaps would be enough to give a good time for tourists who come from cities.

That part of the world also has nature of all kinds, hot springs, incomparable landscapes, paradisiacal places and healthy products for lunch.

Probably for this reason the international leisure industry on those islands knows also perfectly well that well-being also improves the local economy.

This is what happens with the “wellness modality” in almost the entire world.

International studies published in 2023 indicate that the wellness tourism market is acquiring a considerable dimension in terms of health and economy.

Its applications specialize in treatments for women as well as for men and for a wide variety of natural and more sophisticated treatments.

By 2030, the size of the global wellness tourism market is projected to reach several million dollars.

Experts believe this result is because the world suffered from the Covid-19 pandemic but also, and mainly, had to defend itself against it.

The amount of the worldwide health defense that was raised against Covid-19 has established a growing global market for well-being linked to other modalities.

Experts added that the global wellness tourism market will increase at a considerable rate during the period from 2022 to 2030.  That’s why growled strongly since 2021.

Studies prove that the size of the global Wellness Tourism market was valued at USD 18,694.55 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 15.92% during the forecast period, reaching USD 45,351.02 by 2027.

That is money and health at the same time, despite the fact that sometimes it is claimed that both rising concepts fight.

Parameters to which it aspires are high. And attract the attention of industry players, investors, researchers, consultants, business strategists and all those who have some kind of participation or plan to enter the market in any way.

The Caribbean is still looking for solid spaces in the modality, dominated by the United States, Canada and Mexico and in other parts of the world such as Europe, Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy.

Among tourists from all over the world it is becoming increasingly attractive to link vacations with the achievement of a significant improvement in the years of life.
