)-- High smartphone penetration rate drives online shopping in Saudi Arabia
B2C E-Commerce sales in Saudi Arabia are projected to rise at a high double-digit annual rate between 2018 and 2022, according to yStats.com. The major growth drivers include higher M-Commerce rates and the digital economy initiatives supported by the country’s government. With one of the highest smartphone penetration rates in the world, Saudi Arabia’s consumers turn to their connected devices to check product information and shop.
Cross-border players stand strong, but local E-Commerce is also growing
Another major market trend is cross-border E-Commerce. Close to 50% of the country’s market is attributed to sales on international platforms. However, Amazon, a prominent player in this category, plans to go local following its acquisition of the regional online marketplace Souq.com. Furthermore, Noon.com is a fast growing domestic player, supported by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.
