Furthermore, the increasing popularity and growing opportunities for agricultural manufacturers in agro-tourism are expected to accelerate the market growth. In addition to this, according to the Census of Agriculture, in the U.S., nearly 28,575 farms are involved in agritourism and recreational services.

The outbreak of COVID-19 around the world had badly affected the global economy. In order to break the chain and spread of the coronavirus, lockdown and social distancing guidelines were imposed by various countries across the world. This had a devastating impact on domestic and international travel globally. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a deep impact on the global agritourism industry due to travel restrictions, closed borders, and cancelations of booking around the world. In addition to this, according to the World Tourism Organization's most recent data, the overwhelming effects of COVID-19 on the industry caused international visitor arrivals to drop by 93.0% in June as compared to the same month in 2019.

The gradually increasing popularity of farm tourism among children, urban families, and even the corporate world is expected to propel market growth throughout the forecast period. In addition, the rising demand for farm halts and growing curiosity about rural and farm activities among millennials and young minds across the globe is further boosting the market growth.

Moreover, farm tourism is expanding rapidly and getting a big push from the tourism ministry of various countries, which is anticipated to boost the market growth. Additionally, the growing digital innovation, constantly shifting consumer expenditure behaviors, and rising urbanization are collectively projected to drive the agritourism market growth.

Farm tourism, where people can experience a green, peaceful ambiance, rural lifestyle, and farm activities that the public cannot find simply in urban zones, is expected to boost the farm tourism industry. Nowadays, individuals are progressively finding innovative and new ways of entertainment and peace in their life and also finding alternate ways to go and stay in village areas, which is accelerating the market growth.

Agritourism is gaining the most important traction in the farmer community, as it not only offers added income to the farmers along with their farm production actions but also better sustainability across the globe. Farm tourism has huge potential to provide good business opportunities to the farmers and also offer cost-effective and family-oriented recreation surroundings, which is driving the market growth. However, unpredictable climate changes and environmental degradations are a few possible risks associated with the agritourism industry.

Activity Insights

The outdoor recreation segment contributed to the largest market share of around 35.0% in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.0% from 2022 to 2030. The growth of the segment is driven by rising tourist inclination towards sports activities, including hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and hunting, among others. The activities included in outdoor recreation have a lower risk level and thus have become popular among children and millennials, which is expected to accelerate the market growth during the forecast period. Additionally, rising demand for adventure activities and growing inclination towards agritourism among the older age group are the factors expected to further drive the market growth.

The educational tourism segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of 13.2% from 2022 to 2030. The growing educational tours across the globe are accelerating market growth. Many schools and educational institutes are organizing trips to such places where students are made to understand rural and agricultural lifestyles by spending time with farm animals like horses, cattle, birds, and even reptiles; these factors are propelling the market growth. Moreover, the rising interest of the new generation of people in farm activities and their eagerness to have some knowledge along with entertainment has projected to boost market growth throughout the forecast period.

Sales Channel Insights

The direct sales segment contributed to the largest market share of around 75% in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.1% from 2022 to 2030. This is attributed to the huge trips and travel packages offered by the agencies, keeping travelers’ budgets and comfort in mind across the globe, which is driving the market growth. Moreover, the increasing number of tourists booking their farm tours and packages through direct sales channels, owing to the convenience and tailored experience, is accelerating the market growth. Furthermore, key initiatives taken by market players such as online campaigns and social media advertising, which are expected to attract prospective customers to initiate their bookings through direct mode, is anticipated to accelerate the market growth.

Customers are encouraged to purchase their holiday packages through travel agents since they provide quick booking services and a chance to compare different accessible travel alternatives, which is propelling the market growth. Moreover, the increasing middle-class population in developing economies along with rising globalization and disposable income has been driving the market growth during the last few years.
