Two 2009 studies have focused on the fractional markets in Brazil and Australia.
According to an article on FractionalLife.com, a study presented at the first South American Shared Ownership Investment Conference found the vacation ownership market in Brazil “is poised for rapid and long-term growth for many years”. The study was undertaken by Sarah Rezak, Associate Consultant of Luxury Leisure Properties International. Among the finding were that vacation ownership weeks sold in Brazil experienced 38% year-over-year growth in 2007, 52% year-over-year growth in 2008, and a record 61% year-over-year growth in 2009.
Meanwhile, a report commissioned by the fractional exchange company The Registry Collection, titled “Australia and New Zealand Fractional Market 2010” shows that the potential market for fractionals sits at over 470,000 households and possible sales revenues of $60 billion (USD). The report included a survey of 400 wealthy Australians and found that 60% were familiar with fractional ownership and 58% saw fractionals as a viable alternative to other vacation options.
