The rapid development of shared homestays has made the hotel industry feel a sense of crisis and chose to launch an offensive in the homestay field. Can shared homestays be able to resist this? The growth trend of the shared homestay market in recent years has caused anxiety in the hotel industry. According to the "2017 Homestay Industry Development Research Report" released by the China Tourism Association, the number of homestays in my country has grown from more than 50,000 at the end of 2016 to 200,000 at the end of 2017.
The number of direct employees of homestays has reached nearly 2 million, and the homestay industry is open for business. Revenue reached 36.28 billion yuan. According to data from the State Information Center and China Business Industry fax number database Research Institute, the revenue of my country's shared accommodation market in 2018 was about 16.5 billion yuan, accounting for 6.1% of the country's accommodation industry room revenue.
An increase of 1.4 percentage points over the previous year. In the United States, this figure has accounted for more than 25%. The hotel industry counterattacks, will shared homestays embark on the old road of shared leasing? Airbnb also released data earlier. In the second half of 2018, Airbnb’s business in China is expected to nearly triple, and Airbnb’s domestic travel market has grown rapidly, accounting for more than 50% of its total business volume.
