The Q110 BMI UAE Retail report forecasts that the country’s retail sales will grow from US$107.26bn in 2009 to US$150.52bn by 2014. Key factors behind the forecast are strong underlying economic growth, increasing household consumption, growing acceptance of modern retailing concepts and expatriate wealth.

The UAE’s nominal GDP was US$230.61bn in 2009, with last year’s decline of 2.9% expected to translate into growth of 2.8% in 2010 as the economy begins to recover. BMI predicts average annual GDP growth of 3.4% between 2009 and 2014. With the population increasing from 4.7mn in 2009 to an estimated 5.5mn by 2014, GDP per capita is forecast to rise by 33.5% by the end of the forecast period, reaching US$65,941.

Average household spending power in the UAE stands at US$14,400 per annum, according to property consultants Colliers International. READ MORE >
