Experts and scholars from home and abroad have made multi-angle exploration and research on the tourism market forecasting, attained a lot of research achievement and also laid a solid foundation for the completion of this article. In China, as an important channel of foreign exchange earnings in trade in services, tourism industry has an important duty of expanding foreign exchange earnings. Derived from the expenditure of foreign tourists, international tourism revenue is a part of national income from other countries which flowing into the destination country or region and is used to compensate for the value of tourism products (services). The development of China’s tourism industry and tourism market can not only attract domestic and foreign idle funds flowing to the tourism industry, but also to attract a large number of tourists that come from the country (territory) outside, thereby increasing our foreign exchange earnings. So, international tourism revenue becomes an important indicator to measure tourism especially inbound tourism. This study applied the regression model to analyzing and forecasting the rules and trends of tourism development.
