Oman Online Shopping and eCommerce
The population of Oman sits at approximately 4.6 million of which about 2.1 million of them are expatriates. Expats often drive the numbers of packages being shipped from overseas by businesses and relatives as does online shopping.
Oman is a middle-income country, but with a relatively small population and there is no high-value consumer market beyond the capital area Muscat. The educated and largely bilingual workforce are familiar with buying goods from international suppliers and have their products delivered by premium couriers such as DHL and FedEx.
The money spent on online shopping in the Middle East is growing and by 2020 Oman is expected to have 12% share of the market in the region, which is understandable as 75% of the population are internet users. YouTube is the most preferred social media channel at 63% ahead of Instagram and Facebook.
Consumers in Oman use the internet to shop for clothes and beauty products and use websites such as eBay and Aliexpress to order products. Vehicle-related websites are often bought from by consumers in Oman looking to purchase auto spares from the United States
