The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is located in Southwest Asia, bordering the Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf. UAE’s economy is likely to grow to $447.46 billion at the current prices by 2018 with good growth over 2013-2018. UAE is ranked 28th among 187 countries in the transparency index, and the country has a risk rating of AAA by different credit rating agencies, indicating a stable fiscal outlook.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis of UAE and presents its findings in “UAE Country Analysis 2013-2018: An Evaluation of Political, Social, Economic, and Business Risk.” This study provides a concise overview of the political, economic, social, technological, and business risk associated with the country.

Lucintel discusses the various challenges the country face in its path to higher economic growth and prosperity. UAE’s economy grew rapidly with the oil and real estate sectors contributing significantly. The economy, however, faces challenges in terms of problems such as a high unemployment rate and income inequality. In addition, UAE has a higher proportion of foreign labor than local labor. In 2012, the economy was on a decline as global oil prices fell. This will affect the debt repayment capability of the country.

Lucintel's study encompasses the major drivers of the nation’s economy. UAE ranks eighth in terms of per capita income in the world. This has a major impact on the country's development, as the growing middle class of the country is a source of major consumption of goods and materials. The total consumption to GDP ratio of UAE is at an average of 70% over the last decade.

This market research report highlights the different aspects of the country including its geopolitical situation, economic performance, quarterly trend, sectoral contribution, FDI by industry, trend of population, per capita income, trend of inflation, balance of payment, budget deficit, trade structure, foreign exchange reserve and exchange rates, and R&D expenditures.
