The increasing number of tourists due to various tourist destinations, growing preference for multi-cuisine, and rising culture of on-site catering are expected to fuel the UAE Catering Services Market through 2027.
According to TechSci Research report, “UAE Catering Services Market – By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2017-2027,” the UAE Catering Services Market is forecast to grow at an impressive CAGR of 6.71% in the forecast period due to the year-round execution of numerous events in the UAE, including expo and trade shows, and due to the rising number of tourists visiting the UAE. Additionally, the growth in air travel passengers has strengthened the UAE airlines' focus on growing their fleet size. This would subsequently lead to forming alliances between catering service providers and airlines, which is projected to significantly contribute to the expansion of the UAE catering services market in the projected period.
Furthermore, due to intense competition in the UAE's catering market, catering service providers emphasize serving meals made with fresh ingredients and lessening their dependence on frozen prepared dishes. Additionally, the growing popularity of theme-based parties and weddings among foreign embassies in the UAE is fueling an increase in the demand for catering services all around the nation and the convenience of catering services in cafeterias, offices, restaurants, etc. Rising population, per capita wealth, and the widespread availability of reputable caterers like Emirates Flight Catering, National Catering Services & Foodstuff, Royal Catering, etc., have seen a surge in the catering services market in UAE. Due to the more significant number of oil rigs in the country, the UAE has a working population, and since most people have 9 to 5 jobs, they prefer to dine at small restaurants during these hours. The UAE population is becoming more health conscious, and as a result, they want to eat food that is freshly prepared in home-based kitchens. By having a contract for catering food, this catering trend among the working population would expand the market for catering services.
The COVID-19-19 pandemic had a significant negative impact on the UAE Catering Services Market in 2020. Though caterers have always prioritized food procedures, the pandemic has introduced new dynamics and crucial safety protocols to professional commercial aircraft kitchens because the previous protocols were primarily intended to prevent foodborne illnesses. The pandemic has also raised the standard for catering in terms of hygienic practices, cleaning, and sanitizing, but this has cost in-flight caterers more money to maintain the highest standards.
