UAE Real Estate Market Outlook: Ken Research

by Rati Ram Business Developer

Increasing Demand for Co-Working Office Space and Integration of Technology will Drive the UAE Real Estate Space in the coming years: Ken Research

Based on global growth in co-working space, it is anticipated that UAE will experience an addition of co-working space between 320,000 square feet to 530,000 square feet in the coming years.

The direct contribution of travel and tourism is forecasted to rise by 4.9% per annum to AED 264.5 billion which would be 12.4% of GDP by 2027. The travel and tourism sector directly supported 317,500 jobs in the UAE which is 5.4% of total employment. This is expected to rise by 2.4% per annum to 410,000 jobs which would be 5.9% of total employment by the year ending 2027.

In the UAE, PropTech has been gaining popularity and it is being supplemented by increasing investments in the market. In 2017, approximately USD 12.6 billion was poured into real estate technology; i.e. almost 3 times as much as amount invested in 2016 and it is anticipated that with increasing Proptech adoption and emergence of new players, the investment will only rise in the future.

Global Marketing Campaigns for Real Estate Gains Momentum: Along with policies and frameworks becoming more conducive, prominent real estate developers in UAE and Dubai Land Department have been proactive in collectively promoting real estate of the country. Recently launched properties were showcased in international property shows around the world such as Emaar properties were put on exhibition. Special consumer targeted promotions have been launched to attract investors from different nationalities to appeal to a wider investor base.

Rent-to-Own Schemes Gaining Traction: Another key strategy that has been employed by developers that could boost investment from millennials is the introduction of rent-to-own (RTO) schemes. A RTO agreement is a deal in which an individual commits to renting a property for a specific period of time, with the option of buying it before the lease runs out. These schemes offset the need for large cash deposit and would appeal to buyers who don’t have 25% down payment or are unsure of future market trends. RTO deals can now be availed in areas such as Jumeirah Village Circle, Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Sports City.

Impact of E-Commerce on the UAE Retail Real Estate: E-commerce market of UAE reached approximately USD 10 billion in 2018. According to the UAE Ministry of Economy, E-commerce industry contributed around 10% of total consumer sales in the country in 2018. Traditional store based retailers are rising to challenge of Amazon's domination by improving the online shopping experience for their customers and as well expanding their warehouse and delivery system.
