"Bottled Water in Saudi Arabia" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Aug 13 2014

The rising population of Saudi Arabia is driving retail expansion in the country. New neighbourhoods are being created to cater for the growing population, which is resulting in the growth not only of hypermarkets and supermarkets, but also independent small grocers. During 2013 Carrefour opened another branch in the city of Jeddah in a densely populated location. On the other hand, Savola Group's Panda launched its own convenience store format in 2013, and continued to expand, with 23 new stores in the country. This explosive growth in retail infrastructure contributed to the continued growth of bottled water.

Competitive Landscape

Makkah Water led bottled water in 2013 with a 17% volume share and a 20% value share (off-trade). The company's flagship brand Safa benefits from a strong distribution network, which ensures its presence across all channels within Saudi Arabia, even in the remotest corner shops. The brand enjoys attractive eye-level shelf positions in retail channels, particularly supermarkets and hypermarkets, and hence rapid retail development helped it to strengthen its position further.

Industry Prospects

The retail expansion that is currently taking place in the country is expected to intensify in the near future. With the population growth rate expected to hover at around 20% per year until 2018, Saudi Arabia remains a country with one of the highest birth rates in the world. Population growth will eventually lead to stronger retail infrastructure development. Savola Group has extensive plans to open new Panda stores in all formats, namely hypermarkets, supermarkets and the newly created convenience stores format. This is in addition to independent small grocers, commonly known as baqalah, which are expected to grow hugely in number in the wake of new neighbourhood developments. These factors will play an important role in the growth of bottled water in Saudi Arabia.
