Top Growth Opportunities: Confectionery in the UAE

Summary

Confectionery sector witnessed consistent growth between 2011 and 2016 and this is set to continue in the next five years to 2021, with an estimated CAGR of about 7.5%. This growth is due to a range of economic and political adjustments. Investment in oilfield development has led to the rise in oil production, thus allowing economic growth to slowly recover, projected to reach 3% in 2018. More importantly, the rise in oil prices has caused confidence and financial conditions to pick up, meaning the effects of fiscal consolidation are reduced and non-oil growth is boosted. Yet, society demands further economic diversification, meaning the UAE now considers implementing higher taxation and announced a nuclear energy project.

UAE ranks seventh among the top 10 confectionery markets in terms of per capita expenditure (in US dollar terms), higher than Saudi Arabia, China, and Malaysia. The per capita expenditure on confectionery products is expected to grow at a high CAGR of close to 6% during 2016-2021. This growth during the forecast period is primarily attributed to the growing demand for premium confectionery with new and innovative flavours offered in attractive packaging as a gifting item for festivals and other occasions.

Chocolate is the most valuable category in the UAE’s confectionery market, which recorded high growth at a CAGR of about 5.5% during 2011-2016. Furthermore, it is expected to record strong growth at a CAGR of around 6% in the next five years and will be worth just over US$400 million in 2021. Sugar confectionery, the second largest category in the market, is expected to record the fastest growth at a CAGR of almost 11% during 2016-2021 and will reach around US$150 million in 2021. It is followed by gum, the smallest value category, which is forecast to record a CAGR of over 8% in the next five years and will be worth over US$75 million in 2021.
