Why Sell into Kuwait?

In spite of being a huge market and home to many shoppers, the Middle East market hasn’t made a big headway when it comes to ecommerce. Mall culture is prevalent and the experience customers received from ecommerce players in the past was not on par with global standards. Consumer awareness about e-commerce is low with only 50% of internet users being aware of ecommerce platforms. Shoppers also have difficulties in assessing the quality of products and ease in returning goods. Savvier customers prefer international online platforms, which offer more choices and easier shopping.

Revenue in the ecommerce market is projected to reach $1,231 million in 2021 and is expected to show an annual growth rate of 6%, resulting in a projected market volume of $1,562 million by 2025. The market’s largest segment is fashion with a projected market volume of $358 million in 2021. The average revenue per user is expected to be $487.62.
