Saudi Arabia Catering Services market is expected to reach USD8.87 billion by 2027F, growing at a CAGR of 6.91% during the forecast period. Saudi Arabia catering services market is mainly driven by factors such as growing preference for multi-cuisine, increase in working population, and government initiatives.

Catering is the business of delivering food to a location, such as a hotel, hospital, pub, aircraft, cruise ship, park, filming site or studio, entertainment site, or event venue. Caterers provide food for parties, events, and institutions. They can serve meals to many people in a banquet hall or deliver box lunches to a small business meeting. A caterer serves hot or cold food to clients at a remote location. The business may cater to food that consists of hot gourmet meals prepared on-site, buffet food served in chafing dishes, or party platters of cheese, meats, and snacks.

The lockdown due to COVID-19 has harmed the catering service business in the country by shutdown of schools, institutions, and offices. However, government attempts to enhance the building and tourist sectors are expected to improve the market. Government initiatives, such as Saudi Vision 2030 for infrastructure development and raising hajj pilgrim quotas, are likely to provide opportunities for catering service companies to expand. Due to the growing working population and the availability of numerous cultural and nutritional cuisines, the Saudi Arabia catering service industry is expected to reach USD8.87 billion by 2027.

Increasing Government Initiatives Aiding the Market Growth

Saudi Arabia's government has prioritized infrastructure development, which has resulted in an increase in manpower, allowing catering service firms to gain market share. The Saudi Arabia National Transformation Program, for example, comprises expanding infrastructure to accomplish the government's National Vision 2030. The Saudi Arabian Railway Master Plan (2010-2040) has also been introduced by the government, which will gradually grow the workforce involved in the program, allowing catering service firms to deliver food and services on a contractual basis.

Booming Healthcare, Tourism and Hospitality Sectors Driving the Market Growth

The tourism and hospitality industries are inextricably linked to the catering services market, and following COVID-19, the Saudi government has made a number of efforts to enhance tourism and Hajj pilgrims in the kingdom. For example, the government increased the quota for Hajj pilgrims in Makkah from 60,000 to 1 million to enhance the tourism business, which will inevitably grow the catering service market because the bulk of visitors and pilgrims rely on catering services for their meals. This trend is projected to continue in the next five years, presenting a huge opportunity for the food service industry to thrive. The tourism sector in Saudi Arabia is expected to grow by 3.7 percent by 2029, according to the Saudi Ministry of Tourism, for which the government has taken several steps, including establishing the Tourist Investment Fund with a capital of USD4 billion to promote and support tourism activities, allowing the catering services sector to evolve and capture market share. By increasing the quota for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, the government supported the catering service business. The Saudi Vision 2030 project has allocated over 65 billion dollars to healthcare facilities, increasing the demand for catering services in the hospitality industry.

Rising Demand for Nutritional Food Aiding the Market Growth

When the novel coronavirus damaged people's immune systems, they began to pay more attention to their health and favored more nutritional and healthier foods. The catering service sector has been able to deliver nutritional dietary items and capture the market in offices, college campuses, and restaurants as the need for nutritious and healthy food has increased tremendously in workplaces, schools, and restaurants. In addition, the Saudi government has created a National Healthy Food Promotion (HFP) Program to enhance people's eating habits and overall health. Because the country's young population has begun to seek lower-calorie cuisine, catering service businesses have expanded their nutritional offerings to capitalize on the market.
