UAE – The Future of Foodservice to 2021

Summary

Politically and economically, the UAE is seen as one of the most stable countries in a highly turbulent Middle Eastern region. It’s relatively relaxed liberal attitudes combined with its geographical location have also helped it become a highly attractive destination for foreign investment. Having largely escaped unscathed from the years of global economic downturn and austerity seen elsewhere, the UAE has faced the challenge of navigating a significant fall in the price of oil in recent years. This has forced the country to accelerate its plans of diversifying its economy towards banking and tourism, lessening its dependency on oil.

In 2016, the UAE’s Quick service Restaurants (QSR) channel was valued at AED 11.9 Billion following substantial value growth of 5.2% over the previous two years. Despite this, pitfalls of the market remain vastly understated. In times of stagnation across Western foodservice markets, the UAE’s offer of significant market growth and a diverse audience has proved too attractive to ignore for many international fast food brands. To 2021, value growth of the QSR channel is forecast to accelerate, however outlet growth and average transaction prices are expected to remain largely stagnant.

Full Service Restaurants (FSR) channel represents the country’s second largest foodservice channel, accounting for 18% of total sales revenue. Historically (2014 to 2016), the channel has grown at a CAGR of 4.5% which, while strong, trails behind overall profit sector average growth of 5.4% during the same period.

Restrictions on alcohol sales as well as a relatively strong portion of the population being teetotal has largely restricted the country’s pub, club and bar channel, allowing ample market room for coffee shop operators. This has led to a proliferation of ‘third-wave’ international coffee shop operators entering into a ‘space race’ and expanding their presence across the market. Forward to 2021, operators are expected to promote fuller meal solutions within the channel to combat rising operational costs.
Experimental and novelty drinks are expected to become more prominent across menus as operators look to stand out from the increasing crowds.
