Consumer preferences and purchase behavior in the MEA have changed rapidly due to increased digital adoption. The internet penetration in UAE is expected to reach 96% by 2025, with 67% of Middle Eastern consumers shifting to engage with brands over digital channels. 47% already primarily use smartphones for online purchases. This increased digital adoption is the key driver of the 31% increase in online spending in the Middle East. Online retail sales are poised to grow by 20% in 2022, outpacing brick-and-mortar sales. 

As companies increasingly focus on data-driven digital growth and customer-oriented marketing, the MoEngage e-CENS partnership will help augment this transformation.

e-CENS will leverage MoEngage’s cross-channel campaign management capabilities and its robust mobile marketing platform to help its clients improve data insights and customer experience. Through e-CENS’ wide client reach, MoEngage will deliver its services to the MEA market, and help enterprises become future-ready.
