The GCC dropshipping market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 28.40% during 2023-2028. The rising internet penetration, increasing utilization of smartphones, favorable government policies, rapid advancements in logistics and development of secure payment gateways represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment model where a store does not keep the products it sells in stock. The store buys the product from a third-party supplier, who then ships it directly to the consumer when a customer purchases. It eliminates the need for a physical warehouse, reducing overhead costs and operational complexities. Dropshipping is versatile and is employed in various sectors like fashion, electronics, beauty products, and home furnishings. Dropshipping has numerous benefits, including its low upfront investment requirement, making it accessible to entrepreneurs with limited capital. Additionally, it offers a wide range of products without the need for inventory management, thus providing flexibility in business operations. Dropshipping also facilitates quicker order processing and shipping, improving customer satisfaction.
