Saudi Arabia Catering Services Market

Contractual Segment to Hold a Dominant Share in the Market

Between the types, the market for contract catering services has expanded significantly over the years and is anticipated to hold a significant share of the Qatar Catering Services market. This was witnessed by the growing need for contractual catering contracts from end-user industries like business & industry, commercial spaces, and other leisure activities. Additionally, the rising religious tourism in Saudi Arabia, due to the presence of several sacred places such as Makkah and Madinah, etc., have further augmented the demand for contract catering services by the tourism authority to ensure the availability of food services to the visitors. Moreover, in order to increase the visitors tally, the government, in 2023, announced the removal of the limit on the number and the age restriction for Hajj pilgrims. This would also result in constant demand for contract catering services in the Kingdom during the forecast period.

Business and Industry to Gain Notable Traction in The Forecast Period

Among the End Users, Business and Industry have seen substantial expansion in recent years as businesses worldwide have chosen Saudi Arabia as a location for their corporate headquarters because of the nation’s openness to international trade and advantageous location as a regional gateway. Additionally, the expansion of corporate catering services in Saudi Arabia will be aided by the increased foreign direct investment in the country by companies, including Aramco, etc., to promote the development of the private sector and lower taxes for office environments.

For instance, according to UNCTAD’s World Investment Report 2022, FDI inflows in Saudi Arabia rose from around USD 5.39 billion in 2020 to over USD19.28 billion in 2021 and are expected to continue to grow owing to the rising initiatives of the KSA government promoting flexible FDI laws.
