Religious tourism, also known as sacred tourism or spiritual tourism, is a category of travel that has two main subcategories: pilgrimage, which is defined as a journey made for spiritual or religious reasons, and examining religious monuments and artifacts as a form of sightseeing. Religious tourism, also referred to as faith tourism, is the category of tourism in which members of a particular religion travel on their own or with other believers in order to further their spiritual or religious interests or in search of a higher purpose. Missionary, pilgrimage, or recreational motives all apply. The market for religious tourism is driven by population growth, rising disposable income, increased consumer awareness of travel destinations, the popularity of low-cost air travel, leisure travel, and an increase in the number of foreign travel destinations.

The youth are increasingly visiting religious monuments and artifacts to learn more. Growing religious tourism popularity as a way for people to demonstrate their devotion to a particular religion and an increase in religious travel preference among people over 50 are two market-driving variables. Market expansion potential result from government initiatives and budgetary allocations to promote spiritual tourism in nations like India.

Because it benefits the culture and community of the destination, religious tourism can be regarded as a high-quality form of travel. Along with the financial benefits that can ultimately be spent in the conservation of the regional cultural and religious heritage, this type of tourism aids in increasing awareness of people's shared heritages, which aids in their preservation. The empowerment and development of communities can also be greatly facilitated by religious tourism. It helps to foster a sense of empowerment and pride in the local community, its culture, and its history when tourists show an interest in local values and communities. Naturally, religious tourism also helps to boost the local economy, create jobs, and improve the quality of life.

The COVID-19 outbreak has an impact on a number of areas, including travel bans and quarantines, restaurant closures, flight cancellations, restrictions on all indoor events, emergency declarations in numerous countries, declining business confidence, significant supply chain sluggishness, stock market volatility, escalating public panic, and uncertainty about the future. The epidemic has negatively impacted the religious travel industry. Many pilgrims place a great deal of trust in their spiritual guides, which may make them less inclined to follow preventive health and hygiene practices that might stop the coronavirus from spreading. These are some of the market's limitations, but key competitors are also providing recurring customers with a variety of personalization options and extra perks.
