The present bibliometric review of research intends to document and synthesize research trends in the domain of sustainable competitiveness over the past decade. Through bibliographical analysis of 1,259 Scopus-indexed documents, the literature published from 2010 to 2020 have been identified. Publication output analysis, citation analysis, journal analysis, geographical distribution analysis, and co-occurrence keywords network analysis are utilised in this study to identify the trending research and future direction of this specific field of study using VOSviewer software and Harzing’s Publish and Perish software. Findings revealed that the literature on both tourism sustainability and tourism competitiveness solely is in its growth stage. The most productive countries in this domain are the United States, China, and the United Kingdom. In the retrieved documents, the sustainable competitiveness indeed plays a pivotal part in the evolution of the tourism field and laid a solid foundation for future research. As this paper provides an understanding on the possible mutual reinforcing relationship between two concepts, a stronger linkage on sustainable competitiveness that may catalyst the tourism development can offer reference for future research through in-depth analysis.
