Market Report, "Oman Infrastructure Report Q1 2013", Published
BMI View: The construction sector in Oman remains robust and the outlook for 2013 is positive, with year-on-year growth of 5.5% forecast. Solid economic performance and an expanding tourism sector have provided drivers for this growth. However, risks continue to threaten our longer term outlook, as declining oil revenues are potentially tied to political unrest further down the line. The construction industry value is expected to reach US$4.3bn in 2013, rising to US$8.2bn by 2021.
