Key Market Trends

Health & Wellness Snacking on Rising

Consumers are developing a western-style snack trend, demanding healthier products for munching during breaks. The appetite for health-related packaged food recently started to take off in the country. The younger people are becoming health conscious, influenced by international food culture. The rising obese population is another major factor accelerating the demand for healthier packaged products. Around 66% of men and 60% of women in the country are overweight and are looking for healthy snacking. High per capita income, import dependency for food, obese population, and potential demand for healthy snacks offer potential opportunities to manufacturers. About 50% of the population in the United Arab Emirates is below 30 years who prefer snacking for fun and enjoyment. The large young population is shifting snacking consumption, thereby, driving the sales. Consumers are always on the move due to a growing busy lifestyle, which has also given rise to energy bar sales.


Convenience stores and Supermarkets and Hypermarkets holds majority of the share

Convenience stores and supermarkets and hypermarkets led the sales, with a combined share of more than 50% in the distribution channel. Online retail recorded an impressive growth rate of XX%, during the forecast period in the United Arab Emirates.
