UAE Bottled Water Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

High Health Consciousness Among Consumers

The increasing health consciousness among consumers is emerging as a major driving factor for the UAE bottled water market. Bottled water is considered safer compared to ground and tap water. They also contain high nutritional value compared to other drinks. Bottled mineral water also helps in lowering blood pressure and supporting heart health. Due to such health benefits, the demand for bottled water is projected to surge, especially among the younger demographic across the UAE. Also, UAE Food Safety Authorities regulate bottled water to ensure consumer rights are protected, which further propels the market’s growth.

The UAE’s Flourishing Tourism Sector

Tourism is one of the most important industries in the UAE, generating jobs and boosting GDP. UAE ranks 24th in the world in terms of tourism. With the expanding tourism sector, the demand for bottled water is projected to surge during the forecast period as tourists prefer bottled water over normal tap water. Consequently, the growth of the bottled water market in the UAE is expected to be fueled by the increasing number of tourists in airports, hotels, restaurants, cafes, etc.

Restraints

Monopoly of Multinational Corporations

The presence of multinational bottled water brands, such as Masafi, Nestle, PepsiCo., Mai Dubai, etc., makes the UAE bottled water market highly monopolistic, which in turn restricts the entry of new players in the UAE bottled water market. With only giants dominating the market, they have the power to control the price, which puts the consumers at loss. Additionally, the monopoly in the bottled water market in UAE also limits the options for consumers, resulting in a weaker market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on UAE Bottled Water Market

The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in strict lockdown measures, which negatively impacted the overall economic growth of the UAE. As a result of consumers' panic buying, the UAE’s bottled water market saw a shortage of stocks in its off-trade channels. This resulted in a huge demand and supply gap during the COVID-19 period, which sabotaged the overall bottled water market of the kingdom. The shortage of workforce in the production plants and restrictions on supply chains are estimated to restrict the UAE’s bottled water market growth in the post-COVID-19 period as well.
