Why Import Cars From The USA to the United Arab Emirates?

The UAE imports more cars from the US each year in containers than any other country in the world. The UAE imported an estimated 83,122 cars from the US in 2018.

Why are there so many vehicles being shipped to the UAE each year?
The biggest reason is the wide range of pre-owned vehicles available on the US market. With auctions like Manheim and Adesa, importers can pick from millions of cars for every budget.

Another large segment of the UAE import car market are salvage cars from Copart and IAA auctions. Despite the registration of salvage vehicles in the UAE being banned recently, neighboring countries continue to use the UAE as a point of entry for salvage vehicles. These salvage cars are imported in containers, unloaded in the UAE, and then are repaired in the UAE or are shipped directly to buyers in surrounding countries.

There’s also demand from UAE citizens and students who are returning home and want to take their vehicles with them.
