With increased environmental awareness, the global tourism industry is experiencing a paradigm change. As a result, industry leaders are promoting sustainable, unadulterated, and pristine destinations as a way to attract visitors, propelling the growth of the ecotourism industry.

For instance, in Kerala, India, the ecotourism industry works in conjunction with the local forest departments, with the state having multiple ecotourism centres catering to the industry.

In the coming years, the market growth is expected to be propelled by the growth of sustainable hotels. Hilton, one of the biggest hotel chains, has multiple eco-friendly and sustainable locations, such as its Hilton Lake Taupo, New Zealand location.
