Saudi Arabia’s Top industries this year are FMCG, Telecommunication, and Automotive. Seeing Almarai’s 228M views through 271 videos produced throughout the year leads us to predict that they will continue their leading role next year as well.

Toyota Saudi and Saudi Telecom Company have achieved high viewership with 96 vs 94 million views. However, STC has produced a staggering total of 517 videos which didn’t seem to pay off!

Get yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy your dive into these numbers:
