Mobile Bookings to Immensely Rise

With a rising number of Asia Pacific travellers having access to the Internet and digital banking via their smartphones, the mobile will be the fastest-growing online platform in the region, according to Phocuswright's Asia Pacific Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition.

It is predicted that combined mobile gross bookings of China, India and Japan will reach USD105.9 billion by 2020, up 325 percent over 2015.

Chetan Kapoor, research analyst, Asia Pacific, Phocuswright, said, "Mobile share of the Chinese online travel market will almost double between 2015 and 2020 to 77 percent, significantly dwarfing even the Western mobile markets."
