The country is focusing on boosting its digital industry as part of the National Transformation Program. The ongoing fintech boom is also aiding the growth of the e-commerce market in Saudi Arabia. The publisher expects the trend to further continue in 2024, driving registration numbers up across the Kingdom over the medium term.

The firm, in 2023, partnered with Amazon UAE and noon to launch brands like Villian and Pebble. Going forward, the firm is planning to launch the same brands for consumers in Saudi Arabia.

The expansion of global brands, through domestic e-commerce marketplaces, will further support the growth of the industry over the next three to four years. The publisher also expects an increasing number of brands to expand their presence over the next few quarters in the Kingdom.
