The hospitality sector is one of the key drivers of growth among the services sector in India. There is little doubt of the sheer potential this industry holds going forward…. Yet heavy is the head that wears the crown. Faced with stringent government regulations and constantly changing policy related issues, coupled with red tapism and increasing infrastructure costs, the path to profitability is a tough one. Lack of proper trained talent and an increasingly demanding customer further compound these issues. Needless to say the brick and mortar hospitality sector is facing its toughest competition ever from the virtual world of AirBnB’s. The tough balancing act between the Owner and Manager and a stark increase in insolvency and bankruptcy cases are further headwinds the market has to contend with.
