• Understand the demand-side dynamics within the Singaporean travel and tourism sector, along with key market trends and growth opportunities.
• Domestic tourism in Singapore is limited due the small size of the country and the residents' preference for domestic daytrips instead of overnight stays. The total number of domestic trips increased from 97,510 trips in 2009 to 136,596 trips in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of 8.79%, driven by an increase in mean household income and the spending power of domestic consumers.

For example, Singapore Sports Hub, developed in place of the National Stadium (which was closed in 2007), opened in June 2014. The sports hub, developed with an investment of US$1.3 billion, is expected to become a leading sporting and entertainment events arena.

Additionally, except for land accessibility from Malaysia, the country is accessible only through air and sea.

Business car rentals also recorded the highest review-period CAGR of 6.53%.
