Why Sell into United Arab Emirates?

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a wealthy nation with high internet and smartphone usage, digitally savvy consumers, and a projected double-digit increase in ecommerce revenue through 2022. More than 60% of shoppers in the UAE have completed an online transaction and the average purchase is $150, which is comparable to shoppers in the U.S. and UK. UAE shoppers don’t make as many purchases as their U.S. counterparts (19 annual purchases in the U.S. compared to 2-4 annual purchases in the UAE), which suggests there is room for revenue growth. The UAE ecommerce market is projected to grow by 31% annually, reaching $9 billion by 2022.
