The increase in consumption of the functional food and beverages will be a key driver in the growth of the consumer expenditure.

The Dubai government has organized a campaign called “Welcome to Future” for the event. More than 25 million people will be visiting the country during April 2020 to October 2020 as per the government estimations 70% of these visitors will be from different European nations. This inflow of people will help in stable the market for functional beverages in the country which has been declined little after the implementation of Excise Duty on the energy drinks.

Key initiatives undertaken by the government: The government of UAE is proactively participating in the development of health and wellness awareness in the region. Healthcare is one of the key focus for government in the Vision 2021. It has also formed National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031 focusing on improving the health and wellness scenario in the region. In addition, to this the government has also added excise duty on certain product categories which the government deems to be not good for the consumption.
