This has been a steady trend for several years now, with the entire industry de­pending on this segment for a major chunk of its business (78 percent of hospitality Giants had luxury-hotel projects last year). The next largest percentage of hospitality-fee income was restaurant projects at 14 percent.

The hotel trend shows no sign of falling off, as 91 percent of hospitality Giants expect to work on hotel projects in the coming year (almost the same number as 2011).
