Saudi Arabia will face growing economic headwinds over 2016, with the non-oil sector under pressure on the back of reduced government spending. Food and Drink sales will gradually decline as consumer sentiment slows over this period. The Saudi Arabian market still holds positive long-term growth opportunities as the consumer outlook remains favourable owing to its young and growing population as well as rising urbanisation.
Key Views & Developments
