Construction Industry in GCC Countries Driven by Government Investments, Says M&M Report Available at

14 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Tourism industry growth, favorable macroeconomic conditions and positive demographics are some of major trends driving growth of the construction industry in GCC countries.

Governments across GCC countries have been increasing public sector employments and their spending on health, infrastructure and education over the years. This has led to the raise of the standard of living and has provided support to activity of the private sector.

In the UAE, the government has made investment towards the local affordable housing segment. Several hectares of lands have been allocated and developers who will set up affordable housing units have been invited in the country.

Saudi Arabia is a leader in the GCC construction industry. A number of planned projects are scheduled to commence by 2020. Key factors igniting growth of the local construction industry comprise: growth in religious tourism, expanding population of young citizens and infrastructure demand coming from different sectors.

The construction industry in GCC countries also faces some challenges, with a shortage of skilled labor and uncertainty over prices for oil being amongst them.
