Key Highlights
The UAE is one of the fastest-growing economies, and the third-largest construction industry in the Middle East. The construction industry in the UAE is the third-largest industry after oil and trade. More than 6,000 construction companies operate in the country, with most construction activities taking place in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. According to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the construction industry is expected to contribute 11.1% to the UAE’s GDP in 2015, as compared to 10.3% in 2011. Public sector investments in energy, communications and transport infrastructure are expected to be the key drivers for growth in the industry over the forecast period. Private sector investments are likely to remain subdued in 2013, due to low consumer and business confidence.

According to the IMF, in 2011, the UAE topped the list in terms of project value in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region with a 51.1% share, followed by Saudi Arabia with 35%, Qatar with 8.9%, Oman with 3.2%, and Kuwait with 1.8%. The UAE accounted for total value of AED1,171.7 billion (US$319.1 billion) of projects in the industry. The UAE has major construction projects in residential and infrastructure markets. The most prominent projects are the expansion of Dubai international airport, and the redevelopment of Abu Dhabi international airport.

According to the IMF, the population in the country is anticipated to increase from 5.4 million in 2010 to 6 million by 2015, in line with the increase in the expatriate population. Expatriates account for 80% of the total population in the UAE, emerging as the major key driver for growth in the demand for residential and commercial buildings in the country. The residential and commercial markets in the UAE’s construction industry recorded an increase in the number of units, but, over the forecast period, it will gain momentum with strong economic growth, increasing disposable incomes and a rising population.

The UAE is a popular destination for business and leisure. The commercial construction industry has been flourishing, as a number of high-profile projects have either been announced or are underway. In May 2013, Meeras began the construction of its Bluewaters Island in Dubai, at an estimated value of AED5.9 billion (US$1.6 billion). Construction is set to be completed in the first quarter of 2018. The UAE’s retail sector is a strong component of the country’s commercial industry. According to AT Kearney’s 2012 Global Retail Development Index, which ranks the 30 best-performing developing countries in terms of retail expansion, the UAE emerged as the fifth-strongest market.

In November 2013, the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) announced Dubai as the host city for the world’s Trade Expo 2020. UAE’s construction industry will record quick growth as a result, driven by increased spending on infrastructure.

A number of key projects have recently been announced. In February 2013, Arabtec announced that it had won a AED1 billion (US$272 million) contract from the National Investment Corporation to construct a 39-story tower in Abu Dhabi. The hotel will include 563 rooms and 249 apartments, with construction set to be completed in 2016. In November 2013, Arabtec was awarded a AED1.8 billion (US$490 million) contract to build a 77-story, 369m tower in Dubai. Construction is underway and is set to be completed in 2017. In December 2013, Flora Hospitality announced plans to construct four new properties in Dubai, to a value of AED750 million (US$204 million), during 2014 –2016.
