CURRENT MARKET TRENDS

Complimentary to the vehicle sector, there is an auto parts and components sector that has been growing rapidly. It is estimated that about 65% of the auto parts and accessories, that have been imported, are re-exported to other countries. They are among the top 10 re-export products of Dubai and have been growing annually by about 20%. The main destinations of these re-exported products are the Middle East, Africa and East Europe.

The relatively high living standards in the Arab Gulf countries, the rising oil prices, the booming economies and the growing population are the driving forces behind the growth of the automotive sector in the UAE and the gulf region. The developments in the region, such as the situation in Iraq, will have an influence on the re-exports of motor vehicles from UAE.
