Qatar Warehousing and Logistics Industry Market
Analysis Ken Research
How Logistics Warehousing Market Is Positioned
in Qatar? The resurgence of the global economy
from the meltdown in 2009 continued to emerge
through 2011 and 2012, albeit at a sluggish pace.
Logistics providers with strong infrastructure,
efficient organization and processes benefited
from the improving business climate and were
resilient in challenging times. It was observed
that the opportunities were arising in different
regions and products owing to the improvements in
the business climates there was still a large
pressure on the profit margins of even the
largest players in the market. This was due to
the fierce competition with large number of
players trying to advantage from the growing
  • The growth in contract and express logistics lead
    the industry during 2015-2016. The market for
    logistics and warehousing increased to USD
    billion by 2016. The period 2015-2016 has been
    the period of adjustments with fluctuating oil
    prices and reduced investments. Even though,
    there has been a fall in oil and gas projects for
    the logistics providers, the warehousing segment
    has been on rise with improved warehousing
    solutions provided by major players such as Bu
    Sulba Warehousing Park and LVQ. It has also been
    observed that there has been a concentration in
    the competitive structure of the market with
    increase in strategic partnerships such as the
    one between GWC and UPS in 2015.
  • How Freight forwarding Market of Qatar is
  • Freight Forwarding has been the leading segment
    of the overall logistics and warehousing market
    over the past few years. During the period
    2011-2013, the freight forwarding segment has
    increased due to the expanding oil and gas
    projects along with burgeoning infrastructural
    developments in the country leading to further
    development in the market.

  • Retail and FMCG industry in the country has also
    played an important role in the growth of
    logistics market in Qatar. These industries
    demand freight forwarding services for
    transporting the goods from manufacturing point
    to the selling point. The years 2015 and 2016
    showcased low growth pace as compared to other
    years due to a fall in oil and gas projects even
    when the country remained the largest supplier of
    natural gas. Major projects were signed with
    major players such as GWC and GAC as long term
    contracts, especially in the oil and gas segment
    of the industry.
  • Sea freight movement has majorly dominated the
    market for Logistics in Qatar. High amount of
    imports and exports in the country has attributed
    to the increase in the percentage share of sea
    freight. The rising import and export value from
    other countries has triggered the demand of sea
    freight in Qatar.
  • In terms of domestic and international freight
    forwarding segmentation, international freight
    forwarding has largely contributed in the
    revenues of the industry.

What is the Role of Warehousing Market in Qatar
Logistics Warehousing Market? The warehousing
in Qatar has been an important revenue source
apart from the freight forwarding segment. The
country has witnessed the prices rise of around
in warehousing rental annually. The
warehousing industry in the country has hence
observed a growth in terms of revenues as well as
the volume handled by the warehouses in past few
years. Major players in the country have been
observed to increase their warehousing
capabilities such as GWC has recently completed
their fifth phase of expansion of LVQ. The
expansion of manufacturing and industrial
activities in the country has also aided the
market growth during the recent period. The
improvement in infrastructure and expansion of
construction sector has also increased the
requirement of warehousing facilities in the
What is the Role of Express Delivery market in
Qatar logistics warehousing industry? Due to
the high cost of express delivery as compared to
the normal delivery, the share of express
delivery remained low in early stages during
2011-2013. Moreover, the initial express delivery
started using the road transport which faced
major challenges owing to the border issues. The
express industry market has evolved from the
delivery of documents and parcels to specialist
items such as high-tech products, semiconductors,
fabrics and garments as well. The services
provided by the companies such as guaranteed
delivery services, door to door delivery, order
tracking and others have strengthened the growth
of the express logistics market in the country
During 2014-2016, the E-commerce market has grown
at a tremendous pace in the country and Qatar
been the highest e commerce spending country in
per capita terms. This has resulted in the
increase in the demand of express logistics in
the country. The rising number of E-commerce
companies has positively impacted the growth of
the express logistics services.
  • How is the Third party Logistics Market Evolving
    in Qatar?
  • Contract logistics in the country has been
    growing at a tremendous rate in Qatar with
    contracts being awarded out for freight
    forwarding and warehousing. During the period
    from 2011-2013, many major players entered into
    the space while major growth was brought in by
    the leading established logistics player which
    expanded their shares in the market. For an
    instance during 2011, GWC added a new facility
    named 33k into contract warehousing which has
    been the largest third party warehousing facility
    in Qatar with a square metres.
  • The third party logistics in the country has
    grown from a of the market in 2011 to around
    of the logistics market on the basis of
    revenues in 2016. The growth has been due to
    rapidly growing e commerce industry in the
    country. The ecommerce companies generally prefer
    to partner with a logistics provider and focus
    more on their functional area of expertise.

Moreover the growth in the third party logistics
has also spurred due to the increasing number of
contracts offered since more and more
corporations have not been able to manage their
complex supply chains and hence outsource the
contracts to their logistics partners. Key
