"UAE - The Future of Foodservice to 2021", published by GlobalData, provides extensive insight and analysis of the UAE's Foodservice market over the next five years (2016-2021) and acts as a vital point of reference for operators or suppliers.

Value generated in the UAE’s profit sector foodservice market grew at a substantial CAGR of 5.4% between 2014 and 2016, outstripping many European and American markets. Spiraling operational costs, declining population growth and the introduction of a 5% VAT tax from 2018 have, however, created considerable risks for potential entrants to the market.

Whilst frequent out of home meals remain an inescapable aspect of everyday life in the UAE, an abundance of choice has made competition fierce. Operators have been given some respite from the UAE’s large expatriate population, with Western food trends transitioning well. This has largely negated the need for costly rebranding or product development.

Meal delivery plans are expected to gain prominence over future years owing to both a culture of long working hours and the development of a recognized postal system.
