UAE Retail Continues Exponential Growth

The retail market in the UAE has not only grown to be the top shopping destination in the region,

but also continues to attract global shoppers, as highlighted in Knight Frank's UAE Retail Focus Autumn 2015 report.

Matthew Dadd, head of retail, UAE, Knight Frank, noted, ‘‘Though retail supply per capita in the UAE is one of the highest in the world, the market is still performing well and has a lot of potential over the next decade.”

Dadd emphasised that shopping is a popular leisure activity in its own right among locals and GCC visitors and both Dubai and Abu Dhabi have responded to evolving demand by expanding their retail offering and enhancing entertainment attractions.
