“Increasing imports of meat and seafood and pharmaceuticals and rising consumer retail spending has driven the cold chain market in Saudi Arabia”

Rising Imports of Food Products and Pharmaceuticals: Due to country’s arid climatic conditions, around 75.0% of the food requirements of country are met through imports from countries such as Brazil, India, Australia, New Zealand, USA, France and others. The country also imports a large quantity of pharmaceuticals as it lacks domestic production of pharmaceutical supplies. In the last few years, the market also witnessed an impressive incline in the consumer retail spending in the country. According to the Global Storage Capacity Report, 2018 by GCCA, the consumer retail spending on grocery grew at a CAGR of 9.5% over the period 2012-2017.

Rising Prevalence of 3PL Companies: The market witnessed a strong demand for full-fledged integrated distribution centres that included logistics’ facilities, cold storage, dry storage and supporting retail facilities, as a result, demand for new-generation logistics facilities (built-to-suit) increased in the market and increase growth potential for 3PL companies that could handle stock distribution for companies with large and sophisticated supply chains. Currently, majority of the cold storage warehouses are concentrated in cities such as Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam, however it was witnessed that many 3PL companies were planning to expand their operations across other cities as well to exploit the rising opportunities in the KSA logistics sector.

Increasing Investments in Infrastructure: The growing cold chain market of Saudi Arabia is simultaneously witnessing increasing number of new players and existing players expanding their current level of operations, and with the gates opening for the private sector including major players such as Al-Faisaliah, Abu Dawood, Tamer, Sunbulah, Al-Baik, Flow Progressive, among others, it is expected that these companies will upgrade and enhance the country’s logistical infrastructure to capitalize on the new opportunities. On the other hand, government initiatives such as Saudi Vision 2030 which encompasses a nine-point strategy of process streamlining, market liberalization, privatization, infrastructure enhancement, new free economic zones, governance and regulatory reforms has also maximized country’s strategic advantage to evolve into a “go-to logistics hub” for the Middle East region.
