 Three markets reported less than 500 rooms in the total active pipeline: Osaka, Japan (274 rooms); Tokyo, Japan (160 rooms); and Brisbane, Australia (156 rooms).

There is a lot of development in Asia, but there are a couple of countries that are dominating, said Duane Vinson, vice president of content management at STR. One is China, where 108,346 rooms are in the active pipeline, 77,832 of which are under construction. The second is India, which has 45,323 rooms in the total active pipeline.

According to STRs data, about 60% of the projects in the region are in the Luxury, Upper Upscale and Upscale segments.

Within the Chain-Scale segments, the Upscale segment made up the largest portion of the total pipeline, with 23.3% of the total rooms (53,132 rooms).

 The Upper-Upscale segment also accounted for a large portion of the total pipeline for the region, with 22.5% of the rooms (51,099 rooms).

The Economy and the Midscale-without-Food-and-Beverage segments accounted for the smallest part of the total pipeline. The Economy segment made up 5.2% of the total pipeline with 11,843 rooms, and the Midscale-without-F&B segment made up 2.7% of the total pipeline with 6,119 rooms.
