The Sightseeing Transportation industry provides a variety of ground, nautical and aerial sightseeing transportation for everyday consumers. Industry operators generally offer services such as bus tours, whale watches, helicopter rides, boat and dinner cruises and locomotive excursions. Over the five years to 2020, the industry benefited from improving economic conditions, including rising levels of per capita disposable income, which resulted in many consumers increasing their recreational expenditure. However, travel activity during the five-year period decreased, most notably in 2020 due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), which restricted consumers from international and domestic travel. This severely affected industry operators and dragged down performance for the current period. As a result, over the five years to 2020, industry revenue is expected to decrease at an annualized rate of 9.7% to $2.5 billion, including a decrease of 41.5% in 2020 alone. As an industry that generates revenue through nonessential vacation and recreational expenses, industry operators benefit significantly from rising disposable income, which is estimated to increase an annualized 1.5% over the five years to 2020. This trend has enabled consumers to take more vacations, purchase more sightseeing tours and upgrade to luxury forms of sightseeing transportation. Moreover, nearly all industry operators switched to online booking platforms during the five-year period, reducing their operating costs, while the price of diesel, a large purchase cost incurred by operators, declined. Thus, industry profit, measured as earnings before interest and taxes, increased over the past five years and is expected to account for 11.8% of revenue in 2020. Over the five years to 2025, the industry is anticipated to continue to grow as the greater economy and tourism sector recover from the fallout of 2020, resulting in more consumers enlisting industry services. Moreover, travel activity is anticipated to increase rapidly as a result of pent-up demand. Most notably, international travel to the United States is anticipated to grow at a much faster rate than during the previous period and at a more stable rate. International customers are more likely to purchase high-margin services due to their unfamiliarity with tourist locations, benefiting industry operators. Therefore, industry revenue is forecast to increase an annualized 13.4% to $4.7 billion over the five years to 2025. --IBIS World
