Long summers and hot climate conditions have bolstered the growth of the UAE ice cream market. Ice-cream remains to be the favorite frozen dessert in the UAE as it has an arid subtropical climate with long hot summers and briefly warm winters, and is consumed throughout the year. It is a lucrative market for ice creams as the consumption is expected to grow amid the entry of a number of multinational ice-cream manufacturers, such as Mars GCC and Unilever Middle East. A large number of ice-cream manufacturers have been instrumental in introducing new ice-cream variants. Moreover, the growth of the tourism sector and restaurant businesses is also expected to support the growth of the ice-cream market in the country. The large presence of expatriates, tourists, and locals that are fond of eating ice-cream during the hot weather have been generating significant demand for ice-cream.
