Restraints

Increasing Cost Of Production

This cost includes raw materials, labor wages, along with rising property prices. Saudi Arabia is heavily dependent on the import of chocolate from other countries since its production is not economically viable in the country. This significantly increases the cost of production. Moreover, the country is also dependent on migrants for labor, which is further acting as a financial burden on production.

Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia Chocolate Market

The Saudi Arabia chocolate market was negatively impacted by the sudden COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Although Saudi Arabia did not register many casualties like other countries, the monarchy still imposed strict social distancing restrictions during the pandemic. As a result, the supply of imported chocolates was cut down despite surging demand in the market. This created a huge demand and supply gap. Furthermore, the demand for premium chocolates also registered a significant decline during this period due to a halt in the operations of other industries such as hospitality.
