According to Axiom report, application development industry is making ripe ground for UAE’S young, tech-savvy innovators with huge possibilities for growth. And 60% of Middle East’s smartphone app business was caught by the UAE.


In another research conducted by Google in 2016, the UAE ranked number one in global smartphone penetration at 73.8 percent, the same growth in mobile application is continuing in this year also with the enormous uptake of smartphone in the UAE.

The Dubai Smart City activity, launched by Dubai’s e-government, intends to change the Emirate into a global smart city in the upcoming years. As of now, everyone in this country depends on smartphone for things like ticket booking, food delivery, tracking location, laundry, and what not! A lot of governments as well as private organizations are searching for various markets to invest. Because of this expansion, Dubai is turning into a hub for tech innovations. Hence, mobile apps have a huge demand in the upcoming years.

“What we are witnessing now is a lifestyle evolution, one in which errands are transforming into services, all with the help of mobile apps,” says Faisal Al Bannai, one of the most prominent businesspersons in UAE.

Particularly, every tech start-up coming up in this region intends to develop a mobile app that can fill the gap that exists in the market. The demand for mobile apps among the tech-savvy ones is huge and that is what’s driving the app development growth at such staggering pace. As relatively few mobile app development companies have still not wandered in Dubai and local regions, you will find a good scope to take over the market.

Numerous UAE-based tech start-ups have just hinted at early achievement, for example, Careem, Fetchr, and ReserveOut. Yet many other innovative UAE-based start-ups apps are influencing a strong presence in the market, from on-demand laundry service provider, washmen, InstaShop, grocery, and various online food delivery platforms, for example, Eat Easily, Talabat, and Food on Click.

The cost of app development is different for each app’s design requirements. However, it is evaluated that the development costs range of complex or recognised brand apps ranges between $50,000 to $150,000, and that small apps can cost between $3,000 to $8,000.

A report from Accenture indicated that tech start-ups and digital entrepreneurs can possibly contribute altogether to the UAE’s economy. Figures from the consultancy show that digital change, or improving the utilization of digital skills and innovations, can include about AED 51.4 billion to the country’s GDP.

However, the hidden purpose behind the success of Dubai’s app industry is verifiably that app developers started focusing on app market and implementing what potential clients need.
