Qatar Retail Restaurant Industry-07611e51

Favorable Demographics and Income Levels: Qatar’s economy has grown by over ~150% (inflation-adjusted) over the last decade. More than 2Mn people in the country lying between the age group of 20-49 yrs while ~99% population living in urban areas having a median income of ~QAR 20,000-QAR 25,000 per month. This has translated into a boost in per capita expenditure levels on discretionary activities such as eating out in the country. It has become a major source of entertainment for cultural reasons as well as a climate that impedes outdoor activities for most of the year.

Impact of COVID on Retail Restaurant Market: Many Restaurant chains in Qatar shut down their outlets in 2020 due to shifting in consumer behavior from Dining out to cooking at home with a preference for more healthy and organic dishes. Restaurants such as Cheesecake Factory laid off their workers due to loss of revenue and difficulty in cash flow management. All types of Retail Outlets started focusing on Online Food Deliveries as well as protective measures such as face masks, regular checking of temperature, and more.

High Diversity in Qatar Population: Qatar has observed one of the highest rates of growth in the world with its population growing fourfold in the last 15 years. Economic blue-collar migrants from Asia and Africa as well as professional and managerial staff from across the world account for more than 80% of Qatar’s population. Middle income and high-income expatriates are key customer segments for Casual, QSR, and Fine Dining Outlets while cafeterias target blue-collar customers. This ethnic diversity of the workforce has led to the introduction of a range of cuisines from all across the world in the country.

Construction Projects are undertaken by the Government: Construction of new malls, supermarkets, metro stations as well as purpose-built, family-friendly entertainment locations with heavy tourist influx, such as Souq Waqif, Katara, and the Pearl have provided ample space for expanding dining facilities such as QSRs, Cafes, and Casual/Fine Dining Outlets in the country.
