Key Market Trends

Increasing Number of Vehicles to Drive the Demand

United Arab Emirates’s automotive fleet has increased significantly over the decade. This is expected to create greater demand for fuel stations in the years ahead.
The compact stations aim to serve the consumers living in remote residential locations. These fuelling stations can be placed in the parking areas of urban locations with an anticipated capacity of 30,000 liters. The compact fuel station is equipped with a fuel tank set up above the ground, and facilitates to reassemble and move to a new location.
The refined petroleum product sales in Abu Dhabi registered over 6,522 thousand metric tonnes and the Other Emirates registered around 2,836 thousand metric tonnes in 2019. There has been significant demand for petroleum products from vehicle fleets in the country. This is expected to create opportunities for operators to provide mobile fuel stations as per the convenience of the customers.
Further, the increasing number of vehicles on road in the country is likely to inrease the demand for compact fuel stations during the forecast period. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the total sales volume of vehicles (includes all types of vehicles) in the country reached 90,631 units in H1 2021, witnessing a 12% rise from 80,838 units in H1 2020.
ENOC Group has piloted its first compact fuel station concept in Dubai in 2018.
The pilot station is designed to cater to the need of residents living in residential communities and is equipped with one above tank fuel dispenser and a vending machine. The fuelling unit is distinguished for its mobility as it can be dismantled, relocated, and re-installed at locations without easy access to fuel in just 30 days.
Furthermore, in December 2021, ENOC Group announced a partnership agreement with Nakheel Group to open 14 mobile fuel stations in Dubai, to provide customers with fast, convenient, and simplified refueling services.
Thus, technological advancements are expected to drive the fuel station market in the United Arab Emirates during the forecast period.

Increasing Adoption of Electric Vehicles to Restraint the Growth of the Market

With a desire for greater decarbonization of transport in the United Arab Emirates, the government is expected to encourage further technological and economic improvements in electric vehicle technologies for their use in each level of vehicle hybridization and electrification.
In the current market scenario, supportive policies are the major factor driving electric vehicle adoption. The policies enable market growth by creating awareness to consumers, reducing risks for investors, and encouraging manufacturers to develop electric vehicles on a large scale.
For instance, the United Arab Emirates government is planning to launch a free charging station for electric vehicles in Sharjah. The Sharjah City Municipality (SCM) and the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) partnered for this project. ION a United Arab Emirates-based company will be supplying, installing, and operating the EV charging stations in the emirate.
Furthermore, in August 2021, the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy (DoE) announced a new governance framework for charging electric vehicles (EVs) in the Emirate. It aims to enhance vehicle-grid integration and encourage the private sector and consumer participation to scale up EV use in Abu Dhabi.
Thus, based on the above-mentioned factors, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles is expected to hinder the growth of fuel station market in the country.
