Recommerce Industry in the Middle East & Africa to Flourish Due to Increasing Initiatives for Environment Sustainability

The Middle East & Africa Recommerce Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 10.5% during the forecast period of 2024-30, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. The recommerce industry is experiencing a notable surge in popularity within the Middle East & Africa region, driven by growing consumer awareness of sustainability and eco-consciousness. Consumers are increasingly inclined to purchase refurbished and pre-owned items, ranging from electronics to fashion, as a means to reduce waste and minimize their carbon footprint. This shift toward recommerce aligns with global sustainability goals and reflects a broader trend toward responsible use of products.

Increasing governments’ focus on environmental concerns and e-waste management is driving a revolution in the Middle East & Africa Recommerce Industry. As seen by current trends, governments and regulatory organizations in the MEA region are emphasizing environmental sustainability and appropriate electronic waste disposal, which in turn is encouraging the use of refurbished or pre-owned products. Consequently, the region's market participants are seeing new prospects as a result of the government's increased emphasis on sustainability.

Additionally, the recommerce industry in MEA is benefiting from increased access to technology and digital platforms. The proliferation of smartphones and the expansion of e-commerce have made it easier for consumers to participate in recommerce activities. Companies like Jumia in Africa and similar platforms are providing user-friendly interfaces for recommerce transactions, further driving consumer engagement. These trends, coupled with the region's youthful population and rising disposable income in developing countries, are expected to create a conducive environment for the growth of the recommerce industry in the Middle East & Africa region.

Moreover, while the general picture for the recommerce industry appears promising, the Middle East and Africa region's inadequate infrastructure and logistics provide significant obstacles for this market. The success of recommerce operations is heavily dependent on logistics and effective supply chains, as highlighted by current market trends. Businesses in this industry struggle with insufficient warehousing and transportation infrastructure, which leads to longer delivery times and more expensive operating expenses, further states the research report, “The Middle East & Africa Recommerce Market Analysis, 2024.”
