Bahrain Retail Report Q3 2014 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jul 24 2014


Spending on non-essential items such as luxury clothing and jewellery is forecast to increase strongly over the next few years, fuelled by Bahrain's increasingly sophisticated urban population. This will result in a strong rise in household spending across all retail subsectors, with the growth prospects for food and non-alcoholic drinks and recreation and culture being particularly strong. Spending on personal care, communications, clothing and footwear and furnishing and home is also projected to increase significantly between 2014 and 2018. However, we expect housing and utilities expenditure to remain by far the highest throughout our forecast period.

The Bahrain retail report provides an extensive and comprehensive forecast of various retail indicators including household spending, and headline total spending across each retail subsector, household income and employment forecasts, demographic forecasts, and a detailed breakdown of household and per capita spending across a large number of retail areas including food and drink, healthcare and insurance, consumer electronics, toys, pets, gardens, household goods, and a number of other subsectors.

The Bahrain retail market is substantially less developed than those of Dubai or Abu Dhabi, with convenience stores still very much part of the retail scene and traditional markets ( souks) continuing to dominate the market for traditional services and goods such as gold, fabric and sweets. However, Bahrain's love affair with modern retail is intensifying, with 'super malls' such as the Bahrain City Centre development and the forthcoming The Lagoon and Dragon City revolutionising the retail scene. Bahrain's growing population, increasing levels of disposable income and proximity to Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia have all contributed to a significant increase in the size of the retail market in the past decade.

We forecast that the average net household income will be around USD70,954 in 2014,...
