Amazon’s acquisition of Souq is the biggest digital deal in MENA to date, at a rumored value between $650M-$850M. Souq has been investing heavily in the technology and infrastructure to power its business, so the acquisition gives Amazon a powerful platform to enter the region; add to that Amazon’s inventory, cash flow, brand power and experience, and it could dominate the market overnight. A potential competitor could be the ambitiously-funded and much-publicized Noon, but it has yet to launch. That being said, according to BigCommerce’s 2016 research, even in the US market where Amazon is a clear leader, 55% of all ecommerce sales are done through branded stores, vs. 45% via marketplaces (Amazon, eBay, etc). This panel explores how existing retailers and eCommerce players view the MENA eCommerce opportunity after the entrance of Amazon (and Noon), what investments they will be making to remain competitive, and how they see the market developing over the next 12-18 month.

Marketplaces are similarly dominating the MENA commerce landscape, with the landmark acquisition of Talabat for $170M, and the even bigger acquisition of Turkey’s Yemeksepeti (FoodOnClick) for a whopping $589M. These marketplaces are booming across domains: for service like transportation and peer-to-peer loans, and assets like real estate and cars. The region’s biggest pure e-commerce player, Souq.com, is rumoured to be raising $300M at a valuation of more than $1B, likely making it the first Arab unicorn. This session investigates what it takes to build a successful marketplace in the MENA region with some of the top players in this space.
