Increasing Demand for Agri-food Tourism is Emerging as a Significant Market Trend

Agri-food tourism is getting rapid recognition across several communities and is expanding at a significant pace. Agri-food tourism has a great potential to augment the earnings and profitability of agritourism farm owners, along with promoting their regional or local cuisines. In agri-food tourism, visitors are allowed to tour across rural areas and farms and taste specialty food produced or prepared by the locals of the place. Agri-food tourism offers agrotourism farms to display their history, culture, and landscape through local cuisine, food and drinks, and agriculture products. Furthermore, agri-food tourism enables producers, artisans, and farmers to improve their skills and develop their brand and products among the local visitors, as well as tourists coming from overseas.


Governmental Support to Agritourism is Projected to Strengthen Growth

The governments across various economies are focusing on improving the agriculture economy by promoting agritourism, which is predicted to be a crucial growth driving factor for the market.

  • For instance, in Thailand, the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives works closely with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports for promoting domestic agriculture tourism, as well as to encourage local tourism across the country.

Moreover, the incorporation of agritourism departments and the launch of agro-tourism projects by the governments of different economies are expected to further augment the global market size.

  • For instance, in 2005, Agri Tourism Development Corporation was incorporated in India with the focus to encourage farmers for taking up agriculture tourism, conducting research & training programs for them, and various other industry related activities.

Enhancement of Rural Economy Through This Tourism is Positively Influencing Growth

High revenue generation associated with tourism and recreational activities at the agricultural farms is significantly driving the market. Farm-owners are getting increasingly inclined towards developing their properties into agriculture tourism destinations to achieve higher revenues.

  • For instance, according to the Census of Agriculture data, agrotourism revenues from farms tripled between the year 2002 and 2017 in the U.S.

For farmers suffering from losses due to lower crop productivity, investing into agriculture tourism business is becoming a significant option to support their livelihood and boost income, which is further projected to augment the market growth across the globe.


Prevalence of Less Organized Industry Across Developing Economies to Hinder Growth

A major restraint for the growth of the agritourism market is it’s unorganized structure. The concept of agrotourism is niche and it lacks legal definition across several economies, which is restricting the speedy growth of the market. The lack of awareness about these type of tourism destinations and lower number of established tour agritourism operators in this industry, especially across the developing countries is acting as a major obstacle for the market growth.

Event & Recreation Segment to Lead Attributed to Rising Consumer Interest in Rural Holidays

The event & recreation segment is expected to hold a prominent share in the global market. This can be attributed to a significant increase in the demand for recreational tours & activities at farms and at places that have a rural ambiance. Growth of the on-farm recreation through the commencement of generic and specialized activities such as tours in orchard farms, fishing, and tea garden visits for leaf-picking in the western economies is beneficial for the segment’s growth. The rising number of comfortable and well-equipped farm stays in the rural areas across developed, as well as developing economies is playing a crucial role in luring tourists to spend their leisure at these places.

The direct-market segment is projected to exhibit significant rise during the forthcoming years due to the increasing government investments and efforts to boost the agricultural economy through farm product sales. Many tourists who admire the rural lifestyle prefer to purchase farm products and services during their visit to farms to help boost the economy of farmers. In recent years, it has been observed that the farm owners are inclining towards offering a range of fresh farm-grown products such as fruits, vegetables, and others to visitors in order to give a boost to their income. The factor is expected to accelerate the growth of the direct-market segment crucially.
