BMI View: Rising household spending will support growth in Kuwait's food and drink industry in 2016 . A significant number of high - earning consumers will drive growing demand for discretionary products and sustain p remiumisation across the sector. Food retailers will benefit from an increasingly sophisticated consumer base, which will increase demand for larger store formats such as supermarkets and hypermarkets .

Key Trends & Industry Developments

  • Demand for staple foods will remain resilient in Kuwait, with rice and meat sales driving growth.

  • We believe the introduction of a soft drinks tax in 2017 across the Gulf Cooperation Council will not hit the Kuwaiti carbonated soft drinks market over our five-year forecast period to 2020.

  • We expect an increase in investment into supermarkets and hypermarkets in Kuwait, as consumer spending rises and consumers have more purchasing power for premium products.

Each of the country markets are scored using a sophisticated model that includes more than 40 industry, economic and demographic points. These provide indices of highest to lowest appeal to investors, with each position explained.

Food Forecasts

  • Industry Forecast Scenario: Historical data series and a forecast to end-2019 for growth of key indicators within a market’s food industry. Indicators include food consumption, food consumption as % of GDP, canned food sales, confectionery sales and food and drink imports and exports, among others.

Segmented the same way as BMI’s food chapter, the drink section provides insight into each market’s drink industry, centred on a forecast to end-2019 for the sector. Forecast indicators include alcoholic and soft drink sales by value, volume and sub-sector and tea and coffee sales, among others.

Mass Grocery Retail Forecasts

Segmented the same way as BMI’s food and drink chapters, the mass grocery retail section provides insight into each market’s grocery retail industry, centred on a forecast to end-2019 for the sector.
