CiR has launched their new, in-depth report into Asian Cruise Travellers Duty & Tax Free Retail 2015.

Asian Cruise has become one of Asia’s fastest growing Duty Free & Travel Retail sectors, driven by factors including rapid passenger growth.

Between 2012 and 2014, Asian Cruise passenger numbers expanded at an average annual rate of 34%, driven by strong annual growth of 79% among Chinese travellers. As a result, tour operators have not only expanded passenger capacity, but also tailored services to incorporate high-end shopping to meet the high retail expectations of the Asian cruiser.
