A few weeks ago we sat with Dunia Othman of MrUsta to discuss her business and the state of the UAE’s services industry. After our chat we felt that there was more to the story of Usta’s in this region and we wanted to learn more about what has traditionally been a very opaque industry.
We reached out to Dunia for help and she provided us with a wealth of information about both MrUsta and the services industry. As we started looking through the data we were surprised to see just how big the services industry is in the UAE. Did you know that nearly 25% of the countries SMEs are in the services industry? Or that 87% of these businesses aren’t currently marketing online?
After spending some time looking through data we knew what we needed to do, it was time for an infographic. This week, in partnership with MrUsta, we’re sharing some of the latest data on the UAE’s service industry, check it out below:
