Top Growth Opportunities: Meat in Saudi Arabia


Recent political and economic developments, such as the National Transformation Plan, aim to diversify Saudi Arabia’s economy by encouraging the expansion of the private sector and reducing unemployment among Saudi nationals. Prominent members of the ruling family have also suggested an expanded public role for women in Saudi society. All of this points to a more favourable business environment for investors, underpinned by growth in wages and domestic demand.

Saudi Arabia ranks amongst the smallest markets in the global Meat sector in terms of average consumer spend on meat products. Though the population and disposable income are both increasing, average consumer spend is forecast for only modest growth in the five years to 2021.

Saudi Arabian Meat market recorded high growth at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2011 and 2016, from US$2.69 billion in 2011 to US$3.50 billion in 2016. The market is forecast to register strong growth at a CAGR of 8.2% in the five years to 2021, and is expected to be worth US$5.20 billion by 2021. An expanding working age population combined with rising disposable income will fuel growth in the Saudi Arabian Meat market.

Saudi Arabia’s population is expanding rapidly, and life expectancy has also improved dramatically since 1990. Economic and social changes, particularly regarding the role of women in the economy, will expand the working population and boost domestic demand for meat products.

Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan both aim to modernize Saudi Arabia’s economy and prepare Saudis for life beyond oil. Structural reforms are intended to reduce the weight of bureaucracy and push more young Saudis into private sector jobs, thereby boosting wages and domestic consumption. The government’s plans to increase revenue and outside investment in key national industries are a boon to foreign investors, and will create numerous opportunities for producers and exporters of meat products.
