What is this report about?
GCC countries have been constantly striving to diversify their economy away from being solely dependent on the oil & gas industry. In this sense, the retail industry has proven to be a prudent and effective choice. The GCC consumer market is composed of two distinct categories, the growing nationals and increasing expatriates (especially in UAE & Qatar). Higher per capita income and younger demographic profile of the nationals has a positive implication for the demand of high value luxury goods and electronics goods, while the working expatriate population supports the surging demand for consumer goods. In this report, we have analyzed the GCC retail sector, the growth opportunities, the impact of the rising e-commerce retail segment, and the growth of retail space across the region.
