UAE’s smartphone penetration gives huge opportunities to local SME’s

stewartcristan's picture

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.

Are you want to be part of this growth with your mobile app?

FuGenX will help you. So if you have any idea to develop your own mobile app for your customers in the UAE, then contact FuGenX, the best mobile apps Development Company Dubai.

stewartcristan's picture

Dubai is digitally the fastest developing city in the world and plans to becoming one of the most technologically advanced one in the world to provide world-class services in all sectors. With regards to its rapid growth and aims for the future, a 10-million square feet innovation hub will be made in the coming years, while the government effectively searches for powerful partners to help UAE tackle future challenges.

The UAE has always been at the bleeding edge of embracing new technologies and the UAE government has always been supportive of new innovations. Considering this, software development companies, including mobile apps development companies in Dubai started working on new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and etc. And Dubai has got big plans for 2018. Want a peek at it? Here’s what Dubai is up to in the year 2018.


In light of the Expo 2020, Dubai increased its endeavours to make strides towards environmental friendliness, with government planning to increase its green cover.

Also, the huge increase in population and the simplicity of car ownership has directly affected the number of car accidents. In 2016, pedestrians accounted for 30% of the city’s road deaths. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai aims to increase public transportation trips up to 30% by 2020. Several road construction and extra pedestrian bridges projects are also planned to increase safety and concern.

Also, the city wishes to adopt clean and environment-friendly fuels and use artificial intelligence. Most probably by 2020, Dubai will become a cyclist and pedestrian friendly city.

Advanced Biometrics

Online transactions are more popular and secure than ever before. Digital wallets and mobile payment options rose higher than ever this year.

Transaction Value in the Mobile Payments segment amounts to US$224,426m in 2017. The number of users is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2017-2021) of 40.1 % resulting in the total amount of US$865,535m by 2021.

There is continuous and progressive battle to make the online transactions more secure. One of the key innovations is the improvement of advanced biometrics. Advanced Biometric including all, voice scanners, iris scans, and facial recognition are on the whole outfitting to guarantee a cash-free, secure Dubai.


Earlier this year, the Dubai government had announced its Blockchain city plan and its intention to turn into the first blockchain-powered government in the world by 2020. Dubai has always been a frontrunner when it comes to adopting new technologies and to become the world’s first government to optimize business decisions with the help of Blockchain infrastructure.

The Dubai Blockchain Strategy will help Dubai to save 25.1 million hours of economic productivity, akin to 5.5bn dirhams, or $1.5bn, in savings per year.

Artificial Intelligence

The Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum says AI applications will generate incomes and give new chances to the economy. The UAE looks forward to become a major hub for developing AI techniques and legislation.

After Saudi Arabia, UAE became the first country to pass its citizenship to a robot and took artificial intelligence readiness to another level. The government has also recently appointed a State Minister for Artificial Intelligence.

Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammad said, “We want the UAE to become the world’s most prepared country for artificial intelligence,”
Dubai, for instance, plans to have robotic cops on the streets by 2030. While many specialists, most notably Elon Musk, are concerned about further AI development, the Emirates isn’t so much.

Self-Driving Cars

Recently, the Dubai police force introduced a self-driving car, and by the end of this year, it will start patrolling and scanning the traffic for anomalies. An amazing fact about these cars is that they will also be equipped with drones to follow targets off-road).

Sheikh Mohammed said, “By 2030, 25 percent of all transportation trips in Dubai will be smart and driverless. The strategy is projected to generate economic revenues and savings of up to Dh22 billion a year,”

Choose your bot’s features carefully

First you have to define the list of objectives your chatbot must require to consider. Chatbot conversation can help them in an efficient way.

Give bot personality

Making a personality is the most important part of chatbot creation. Your chatbot is an extension of your company’s brand image and customer services. So you have to give your bot a personality in order to provide the great user experience. The way a bot speaks to your customers is not the only thing you can change.

Opinion: The Future of Artificial Intelligence in the UAE

stewartcristan's picture

Artificial Intelligence is the science of programming machines or computers to get done activities that humans can do or aid humans to do the things better, which can be learning and decision-making.

AI is penetrating every aspect of business, so all sorts of technology services companies, including mobile apps development companies focus on artificial intelligence to leverage trends. On the other hand, Artificial Intelligence (AI) turned out to be a controversial technology as well.

However, AI is trending globally. Dubai as a global city is home for innovation and technological advances in fields such as healthcare and education and is formulating the consistent growth of the UAE.

Chris Schroeder, the author of ‘Start-up Rising’ and panel moderator at GITEX Future Stars, answers three quick questions on artificial intelligence in the UAE, tech entrepreneurship and disruption opportunities.

*You are moderating a panel about artificial intelligence at GITEX Future Stars. For what reason you think that Dubai and the UAE can rise as a focus for innovation in AI?

There are 3 things that are in support for Dubai and the UAE as a centre for any innovation in the Middle East and other growing markets. The country keeps changing the rules to make advancement and generate interest in AI, which is easier and more reliable than ever.
With a growing talent network, new legislation, and more venture capital interest, the UAE has all the key ingredients to emerge as a centre for technology start-ups.

Today, Dubai on the Persian Gulf has grown as a hub from which tech start-ups with roots across the Middle East look towards rising markets and create data sets solving unique and large problems.

*What are the difficulties entrepreneurs facing when trying to build an AI start-up in the region?

The power and speed of what is happening in AI in Silicon Valley and China is significant - So, it will be essential to find contrasting and scalable ways to optimize these new technologies.

*Are there any other local industries ready for technology disruption? What are some of those conspicuous start-up opportunities you see?

Each and every industry face challenges with new technology and the new opportunities it creates. In a way, the key is to concentrate on building solutions, solving the challenges.

From a start-up viewpoint, businesses that fill the gap in the society, and get hands dirty in solving complicated challenges emerge. AI has such opportunities for businesses. Dubai has many such startups.
Every new tech graduate now says since I am starting my career, I would like to shore up my maths and statistics skill, expose myself to as much data science as possible and even I would like to know about AI, VR, robotics innovations in health such as genomics, and about blockchain. But I would still study history, push myself to write and think critically.
