Kuwait Building Construction Industry December 2011
Description

Notwithstanding the setback witnessed in the early half of 2011 owing to the prevailing global economic conditions, political crisis in the nation and regional civil unrests, growth in the Kuwait’s construction sector continues to gather pace backed by its strong economic growth. The major driver behind rapid expansion of construction industry has been government spending, which registered noteworthy increase in the recent years. Its young and quickly growing population base and the Sultanate’s economic diversification programme are the key driving forces behind the construction sector developments.

Kuwait’s real estate market is a pillar of strength for the local economy, as its health is tied to the Kuwaiti population as a whole. Aside from Oil sector, Kuwait has two major markets that are stock exchange and real estate. Notwithstanding the setbacks witnessed as a consequence of the global economic downturn and political crisis, the country’s building and construction sector still holds potential and the market is slowly beginning to recover from the impact of the turbulent economic times. The real estate sector and related sectors have been contributing more than seven percent to the gross domestic product (GDP) over the past decade. Legal restrictions introduced post 2008 in terms of laws prohibiting mortgaging and trading of residential property in addition to the global economic slowdown had caused a dent in the growth curve with the market experiencing a near one-third contraction in 2008 and the following year. Nevertheless, the future for this market remains excellently positioned for recovery and growth with the Government plans for addressing the demands for low cost housing projects in tandem with private sector investors and introducing measures to ease the stringent project financing policies.

Stability of oil prices, high income, low inflation and low prices of construction materials, and attempts by real estate companies to address consequences of global financial crisis have contributed to a healthy boost for the real estate sector in Kuwait. Heavy government investment in building social infrastructure is also expected to drive the sector. The government's projected spending of KD 37 billion during the 2010 - 2014 within the development plan is expected to boost real estate, coupled with housing facilities offered by banks.
