UHERO State Forecast Update

Already weak, Hawaii’s prospects look increasingly dicey

From UHERO, September 20, 2019

Hawaii’s slowing has deepened in 2019. Two years of population decline have undercut demand in many sectors.

While tourism is generating impressive visitor numbers, there has been a sharp pullback in international markets. Add to that the crackdown on Oahu home vacation rentals, and prospects for further tourism growth look poor.

Construction remains a bright spot, at least for now.

We expect Hawaii to tread water over the next few years, vulnerable to waves that could well pull us under.
