IoT in Travel and Tourism Sector – Impact Analysis
IoT when combined with other emerging technologies, such as AI, 5G, and cloud computing can offer various benefits in the travel and tourism sector including increased operational efficiency, reduced costs, improved decision-making, and enhanced customer experience.
Reduced Costs: Greater automation reduces the need for workers or simply makes the workforce more efficient, resulting in cost savings. For example, IoT in the travel and tourism sector can create personalized experiences for consumers, such as in their hotel rooms, without the assistance of staff members. Travelers can control appliances or services through a centralized device, such as a tablet or mobile application or companies can use IoT sensors to store customer preferences and automatically apply them. With the help of IoT, this personalization can occur without the need for extra staff thus reducing overall costs for travel and tourism companies.

IoT Value Chain Analysis
The key components in the IoT value chain analysis are the physical layer, the connectivity layer, the data layer, the app layer, and the services layer. These layers are logically discrete, although large-scale IoT use cases will likely blur these logical boundaries. For example, while there will continue to be an identifiable data layer towards the top of the stack, a growing proportion of the data processing occurs within and at the edge of the network.
Physical Layer: Today, most connected devices—such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops—have a physical dimension controlled by humans. In the IoT, most connected things will be run by other connected things. For manufacturers of washing machines, door locks, light bulbs, aircraft engines, or cars, the key question is not whether their things should be connected to the internet—that is a given. Instead, the challenge is whether they can retain the bulk of the added value during the transition to IoT and how they can use the data collected by various embedded chips, sensors, antennae, and beacons. Some industry profits will likely be siphoned out by technology companies that increasingly provide IoT solutions as a service.

This thematic report provides an overview of the impact IoT has on the travel and tourism sector and the challenges it can help to address. The report further recommends how travel and tourism companies can deploy IoT solutions and where they should invest to stay ahead of this disruptive technology.
Several case studies are included in this report to analyze the multiple ways travel and tourism companies have used IoT thus far. The report also features alternative datasets to highlight the impact of IoT.
IoT is essential to digitalization in travel and tourism. Airlines, for example, can deploy the predictive maintenance capabilities of IoT systems to reduce the cost and downtime of aircraft repairs. This is just one of the many transformative use cases of IoT with this emerging technology ready to be employed across the travel and tourism value chain, for example, to manage crowds at popular attraction sites, personalize hotel stays, simplify airport navigation, and much more.
IoT can also assist in travel and tourism companies addressing ESG challenges. In the last decade, COVID-19 appeared as the top existential threat to the travel and tourism industry, but as companies recover, the challenge of ESG has returned to center stage. IoT can address ESG concerns in a host of ways from sensor-enabled smart lighting and thermostats that monitor and adjust the environment of lodgings to improve energy efficiency to IoT-enabled smart buildings that integrate energy-efficient technology throughout cities.

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
