Although the metaverse is still in the early stages of development, it’s already possible to see its potential in areas like educationgamingwellness and commerce. These opportunities, and others that will emerge as metaverse technologies are more widely adopted — opening up new markets and business models, creating better ways of working, and transforming training and development – are the focus of a new series of research reports, that examine the economic potential of the metaverse across the world including in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

According to ‘The metaverse and its potential for MENA’, this region is on a journey of economic transformation and digitalization, and their businesses and governments are showing an appetite for new digital and immersive tools. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia (KSA) are taking a leading role, actively investing in metaverse ecosystems.
