Market research in Egypt

Egypt provides you with incomparable opportunities in key sectors. From services and tourism and  agriculture, to the booming financial and telecommunications sectors, Egypt’s economy is diverse and alluring. For example, the FinTech and general tech field is booming, and provides opportunities for both local and external players to meet the insatiable demands of the market. Egyptian business environment is difficult, and the government sometimes difficult to navigate, but the market of both its urban centres and rural areas are extremely attractive and worth developing into.

About Egypt

The Nile, the longest river in the world, allowed for the development of one of the greatest civilizations of all time in Ancient Egypt. The country holds coastlines on the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, both on its Eastern coast and the Sinai Peninsula. Its  African neighbours are Sudan and Libya. Egypt now has the largest population in MENA, which is heavily distributed along the Nile: around 95% of the country lives within 20 km of the river and its delta at the mouth. 

Egypt’s already high population is growing very rapidly, putting stress on the country’s natural resources, education, and health care. Despite its tough geographic conditions, Egypt has a dynamic and diverse economy. Extractive industries, tourism, and agriculture are three very important contributors to the GDP.

Why conduct market research in Egypt

The country, with over 4 billion barrels of oil reserves, is a significant player in the global market. Agriculture, despite its impressive capabilities, is not sufficient to fill the local demand, resulting in an essential place for the import of grains and foods.
