• Rising Import and Export activity in future will increase the demand for Kuwait freight forwarding market.
• Kuwait freight forwarding industry is anticipated to grow due to rising e-commerce market with the increase in demand of online shoppers and imported electronic goods in the country.
• Road Freight is by far the most popular medium for moving freight within the country and will continue to grow owing to integration of regional economies.
In Kuwait, demand for freight forwarding will be dominated by oil and gas industry and FMCG industry which include food and beverage industry into it. There will be increase in demand of crude oil at the global level and Kuwait being a major exporter of crude oil among the OPEC countries will led to rise in export activity in the country which will automatically generate higher revenue for the Kuwait freight forwarding market. On the other hand, Kuwait is largely dependent on imports for dairy products, food items, fruits and vegetables. Since, country has a total arable land of 10,600 hectare which is 0.6% of the total area and the soil in Kuwait is low in nutrient and organic content along with it has poor moisture retaining capabilities. This has led to low production capacity which significantly increases the demand for importing vegetables and fruits in the country to meet the food requirement of people in the country.
E-Commerce industry in Kuwait will contribute a significant demand for Freight forwarding as e-commerce market in Kuwait is expected to reach USD 1.1 billion in 2020 owing to the rise in online shoppers. However, e-commerce industry contributes a minimal share in revenue generation for the freight forwarding industry, but with the growth in online shoppers and increasing demand express delivery for imported items in future will contribute a major share in expansion of freight forwarding market. Import of various electronic goods, fashion/apparels products, other grocery items and to delivery these imported goods end users will require more number of transport facility for domestic transportation of goods in future.
Road contributed the least share in generating revenue for the freight forwarding industry as it is generally used for the domestic shipments. in future, the increasing demand for FMCG products will positively increase the demand for domestic freight movement in the country as road remains the most popular medium for transporting goods within the country.
