Find the right retail channels in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia, the largest country in the Middle East, has a population of about 35 million as of 2023. It is the world’s largest oil exporter, deeply influencing its culture, economy, and politics.

With a high GDP per capita of approximately $23,000 USD in 2023, Saudi Arabia’s economy is heavily dependent on oil, which accounts for most of its export earnings and government revenues. The country is diversifying its economy, with significant investments in sectors like tourism, entertainment, and technology.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest economy in the Arab world. It accounts for 25% of the Arab world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Saudi Arabia has an oil based economy with strong government controls over major economic activities.

Saudi Arabia market opportunities

Strengths of the Saudi market include:

  • No taxation on personal income
  • Proximity to other Gulf markets
  • Key member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)
  • Largest economy and population in the Gulf region

Challenges include:

  • Identifying suitable sponsors for initial entry into the market
  • Finding an appropriate Saudi partner for joint ventures
  • Lead time to establish legal entities and obtain licenses from appropriate ministries

You must apply through the relevant government ministries for licenses to do business in Saudi Arabia.

Look for a business partner in Saudi Arabia

You must have a physical presence in Saudi Arabia to be directly involved in the buying and selling of goods. Under Saudi investment law the establishment of a physical presence requires a joint venture with a Saudi partner. You should evaluate your business partner thoroughly. You should take local legal advice and consult.

Here are some practical guidelines:

  • Prospective partner has the necessary legal entity in Saudi Arabia
  • Prospective partner works in the same field that you are working in
  • Choose the partner who will have an added value for your business
  • Be professional. Do not base your partnership on friendship or personal relationship
  • Have all legal contracts and MOUs reviewed by a local lawyer and an experienced consultant working in the same industry as yours
  • Do all necessary due diligence prior to signing a contract
  • Define clearly the roles and responsibilities of each party
  • Always include an exit strategy in your contract
  • Invest in finding the right partner. Visit them and meet them in person before making any commitment

Our structured approach: scan - Launch - Grow

The best way to learn about a market is to start reaching out and adjust your sales pitch on-the-go. This is what we do in our Scan-Launch-Grow approach. 

1st month

We scan the market

We dive into your product and what sales strategy has worked for you in other countries. We show your offering to various potential distributors or brokers to collect feedback. And we review your competition so that we can determine the best market entry strategy. 

2nd month

We launch your product

Together with you we develop a first pitch for your target group. We extend our long-list of potential targets further and start reaching out, getting to the right decision makers and pitching your product. And we discuss the results with you, in order to optimise your strategy further.

3rd and next months

We grow your sales

We keep searching for new distributor candidates and reach out to them. We also follow-up on previous contacts we had and on leads that you bring in. We introduce you to interested parties, but we can also support in meetings or close deals on your behalf. Every month we review our results.
