Construction in Saudi Arabia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2015 New Report


Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/24/2012 -- Saudi Arabia was relatively unaffected by the global economic slowdown. During the review period, the construction industry in Saudi Arabia recorded a CAGR of 5.70% between 2006 and 2010. This was partially attributed to the country’s oil based economy which represents 80% of the country’s revenue and is relatively unaffected by changes in the global economic market. Similarly, 45% of GDP and 90% of export earnings are contributed by the petroleum sector. However, the Saudi Arabian government is diversifying the oil based economy and this is creating opportunities for the construction industry. During the review period, the Saudi Arabian government started to promote private sector investment in the country and as a result, many construction projects have been planned to facilitate this during the forecast period.
