  • Trends Developments And Restraints In Qatar
    Catering Services Market
  • The infrastructure development in Qatar has seen
    rapid growth in the last five years under the
    guidelines of Qatar National Vision 2030. The
    government has allotted USD billion for
    infrastructure, transport, hotels

and stadia as it prepares to host the 2022 FIFA
World Cup. Rising construction activities
increased the number of labour camps in Qatar.
Such camps required catering services for meals
a day at competitive prices and standard quality
of food and service. Qatar saw more than
million visitors in 2016 majorly during Eid
celebration events and the Qatar Summer Festival.
QTAs collaboration with the Ministry of Interior
and Qatar Airways has further facilitated
visitors entry to Qatar. Over the past 5 years,
growth in number of visitors averaged . Also,
with the recent introduction of a 96-hour free
visa scheme for travelers transiting in the
country, the number of tourists is consequently
projected to increase. Qatar has seen rising
number of health conscious people looking for
light and nutritious food. People have become
more aware about the need for a healthy
lifestyle. In order to fulfill the needs of the
customers, catering services are putting more
emphasis on using organic food ingredients. Due
to the changing preferences, many catering
services have restructured their production
process. Catering companies are now increasing
focus on locally produced raw materials to ensure
quality standards. There is a shortage of good
quality warehouses in
Qatar. Moreover, storage of food products require
extra care as many factors such as temperature,
humidity, pest control need to be
considered. Qatar Catering Services Market

2016 at a CAGR of . This will be majorly driven
by the rise in construction activities as major

new projects will create demand for catering
services at labour sites. The tourism sector is
expected to reach USD billion by 2025 with a
target to receiving million visitors by 2020.
This will be supported by USD billion
investments under National Tourism Sector
Strategy 2030. This will further create
opportunities for catering
  • services in hotels and hospitality sector.
    Catering services can use the experiential dining
    concept to gain competitive advantage by offering
    services such as theme food and extreme forms of
    design and décor.
  • Analyst Recommendation
  • As Qatar government has increased focus on
    infrastructure development in tourism, education
    and healthcare sector, catering services will
    majorly see rising demand from these end users.
    Catering services should keep tracking government
    tenders for capturing contracts for catering at
    remote industrial sites and mega infrastructure
    projects. Supply chain efficiency for catering
    service involves cost reduction, minimum wastage,
    storage and inventory management, integrating
    various departments in the manufacturing process
    and incorporating a proper monitoring and
    tracking system in order to avoid contamination
    and ensure quality and hygiene standards. Another
    important aspect is agility which means that a
    catering service should have the ability to deal
    with variable demand and production flexibility.
    Furthermore, technology and digital platforms are
    being increasingly used to enhance productivity.
    These apps can be used

by new entrants to improve their value
proposition. The Qatar catering services market
has seen a rise in number of players with large
players catering to big and luxurious clients
while small players providing lunch box services
to the corporate with variety of cuisines.
Initially, the company might chose to keep lower
prices to capture market share but once it builds
a brand name it can raise the prices. Moreover,
Qatar population is dominated by expatriates.
Special focus should be on Indian, Pakistani and
Filipino population as they account for the
highest expat population. Such employees prefer
food items according to their ethnicity and
culture. The most popular cuisines in Qatar are
Indian, Arabic, Pakistani and Filipino. Companies
