China’s potential in dive tourism is immense and set to continue rising in the foreseen future. According to PADI’s recent market report, China is the fastest-growing market in dive tourism. On average, the annual growth rate of newly certified divers in China is 35-40%, much higher than the overall global rate of 10%. The market also shows a strong interest in freediving and mermaid diving.

Before the pandemic, the Diving & Resort Travel (DRT) Expo in Shanghai recorded an average 30% yearly growth rate of exhibitors since 2014; this number jumped to 76% in 2017.


Localising your brand is crucial to breaking down cultural barriers and connecting with the Chinese audience.
