This is a great indicator of the sign of good times and also shows that the industry is growing at a faster pace as compared to previous years," Falaknaz added

Sharif also mentioned that in addition to the printing and digital signage sector, car enthusiasts in the UAE also witnessed live car wrapping demonstrations

The car wrapping industry has witnessed rapid growth in the UAE in recent years and this market is very much in the growth phase and has a tremendous potential. This medium definitely enables wide marketing outreach, and the effectiveness of the advertising as well as its aesthetic appeal has been the reason behind the recent surge in demand for car wraps.
