According to a senior executive at NLB Services, a global provider of technology and digital talent solutions, the travel and tourism sector in India is poised for substantial growth, with predictions indicating the creation of 5.82 crore jobs by 2033.

Travel and Tourism Sector in India Expected to Create 5.82 Crore Jobs by 2033

NLB Services CEO Sachin Alug underscored the sector’s resilience amidst challenges, noting its significant contribution of 39 million jobs in 2020, constituting 8% of India’s total workforce. Notably, talent demand in tourism surged by 44% in August 2023, with an expected addition of 1.6 million jobs in that year alone.

Alug emphasized the sector’s robust growth trajectory, projecting an additional 58.2 million jobs by 2033. Travel and tourism have played a pivotal role in India’s economy, contributing Rs 15.9 lakh crore in 2022 and an estimated Rs 16.5 lakh crore in 2023.

Among the top states attracting domestic tourists are Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Maharashtra, with cities like Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, and Kochi driving hiring growth. Tier II cities such as Jaipur, Ahmedabad, and Chandigarh have also experienced increased activity in the sector.

Alug highlighted key job profiles in demand, including sales, business development, chefs, travel consultants, tour operators, hoteliers, guides, wildlife experts, and transportation providers. He noted the sector’s evolution, with emerging subsets like destination wedding travel, religious tourism, adventure sports tourism, ecotourism, cultural tourism, and rural tourism gaining prominence.

Sustainable tourism has emerged as a significant trend, boasting a global market value of USD 180 billion. Alug pointed out the adoption of the gig model by companies to address talent shortages, with gig roles such as translators, photographers, and tour guides witnessing a 14% increase since January 2023. This trend is expected to continue with an anticipated growth of 18-20% in the next two years.
