Top-20 Tourist Generating Countries

Data gathered from the International Trade Administration shows that nearly 74 million tourists, or non-resident persons, arrived in the U.S. in 2014. As expected, an overwhelming majority of those tourists arrive from neighboring countries—including Canada and Mexico, which are crucial markets for U.S. tourism. European countries, which encompass 8 of the top 20-tourist generating countries, are also vital contributors. In addition, over the years China has become an increasingly high-growth market. Thus it is no wonder that China, along with Colombia, India, Brazil, and Sweden, are forecasted to become major international markets for tourism by 2019.
