UAE organic food market is
anticipated to witness rapid growth through 2025 owing to increasing number of standard
local organic food farms in the country. The rising health consciousness,
especially among younger population and increasing prevalence of various
lifestyle related ailments such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes
are acting as key growth drivers for UAE organic food market. Moreover, the
government is taking initiatives to lower obesity rate of the country, which is
supporting the demand for organic food products. Consumers are also paying more
attention to their diet and trying to include healthier options such as organic
fruits and vegetables, which are free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Additionally, the UAE government is
implementing regulations on organic farming and is coming up with certification
process to ensure that the locally grown organic fruits and vegetables meet the
international organic farming standards. The establishment of organic farming
department and Organic Farming Association in UAE is further acting as a major growth
factor for organic food market in the country. However, the market is also
witnessing some challenges. The climatic conditions and limited water resources in UAE is
making farming activities difficult and hence, the country is primarily
dependent on organic food import. Also, high cost of organic food and lack of
knowledge about their health benefits is expected to hamper the market growth
during the forecast period.
The UAE organic food market is
segmented based on type,
form, end user, distribution channel and region. Based on distribution channel,
the market can be segmented into supermarkets/hypermarkets, grocery stores,
e-commerce, convenience stores and others. Among them, the
supermarkets/hypermarkets segment held largest market share in 2019 owing to
the availability of organic food products in most major UAE hypermarkets and
supermarkets. However, the e-commerce segment is expected to undergo fastest
growth through 2025 as they are offer wide variety of fresh organic fruits and
vegetables at a relatively lower rate. The booming e-commerce industry in UAE
is further supporting the growth of this segment.
