“According to our recently released GfK Consumer Pulse MENA3 Study 2022, consumers in Saudi Arabia are receptive to exciting new things entering their lives: they are considering acquiring an EV, their lifestyle is becoming more digital, not only in the sense of online shopping, but they are also beginning to investigate AR or the Metaverse,” revealed San Martin.

“The Saudi consumers are similarly affected by global trends and are concerned about inflation as they are becoming more price-sensitive and willing to trade down, resulting in more strategic purchasing decisions,” he added.
