Egypt: Retail Foods

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2022-0018

Egypt imported some $3.8 billion worth of consumer-oriented products in 2021. This is a decrease of 8.67 percent from 2020 imports of $4.1 billion. The United States was the third largest exporter to Egypt with approximately $243 million in exports accounting for roughly 6 percent market share. This is an increase of about 19 percent from 2020 export value of $204 million. E-commerce has seen a noticeable increase in the Egyptian retail sector, despite the dominance of traditional grocery stores. Online retailing platforms are growing in number and popularity. U.S.-origin food exports to Egypt face competition from European, Middle Eastern, and increasingly African-origin exports. Free trade agreements, shipping proximity, and lower production costs often provide exporters in these countries an advantage over U.S.-origin food products.
