GCC INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET OUTLOOK 2016

Construction in the GCC infrastructure sector is driven by major infrastructure projects being developed in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar. As per BNC project intelligence database, the GCC infrastructure market has an estimated value of over USD 400 billion. Some of the notable projects in these countries include the Madina Metro in Saudi Arabia (USD 8.0 billion), the Midfield Terminal Building in the UAE (USD 3.6 billion) and the Gold Line Underground Doha Metro Network in Qatar (USD 3.5 billion). The GCC infrastructure market is expected to undergo positive growth over the next few years as the GCC region prepares to host global events such as Dubai Expo – 2020 and FIFA – 2022. Executive Summary This report begins with an overview of the GCC infrastructure market, looking at the market size of each country. It also looks at the pipeline of projects at different stages of the construction life cycle (i.e., concept, design, tender, on hold and under construction). The report then discusses some of the growth drivers supporting a healthy infrastructure market before turning to specific infrastructure market segments such as aviation, rail, marine and road development projects. The final section highlights a series of mega infrastructure projects at different stages of the construction life cycle.

The main construction activities in the GCC are happening in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. A high number of infrastructure projects are in the initial stages of construction, which is an indication of future growth. According to the BNC project intelligence database, there are over 1,500 infrastructure projects that have a combined estimated value of USD 407.9 billion. The main growth is coming from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. The total value of infrastructure projects in these three countries is estimated at USD 317.3 billion and makes up approximately 74% of all infrastructure project values in the GCC.

THE FOUR KEY GROWTH DRIVERS

Key growth drivers continue to support a healthy infrastructure market.These drivers include urbanization, tourism, global events and long term government planning.

GROWTH DRIVER 1: URBANIZATION

Urbanization is one of the important factors driving infrastructure development in the GCC. The total population of the GCC is estimated at 47 million people in 2015, and is expected to reach 53.5 million people over the next five years. The majority of residents in GCC countries are concentrated in a few major cities. Residents of Saudi Arabia are primarily located in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam as well as the holy cities of Makkah and Medina. Similarly a high portion of the population in the UAE resides in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. The population in Oman mainly resides in the northern cities. The majority of residents in Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait are in or around the capital city of each country.

GROWTH DRIVER 2: TOURISM

The fact that GCC governments are committed to reduce their dependency on oil is causing them to invest in other sectors, such as tourism. GCC countries are promoting either luxury tourism or religious tourism in order to attract visitors. The 18 million tourists that visited Saudi Arabia in 2014 made up only 2.5% of the country’s GDP. This is much lower than that of the neighboring UAE which reported in April 2016 that the contribution of tourism to GDP is expected to reach 8.5% by the end of this year. The number of visitors to Dubai has steadily increased over the last few years, reaching just over 78 million passengers in 2017. By 2020, Dubai is expecting to reach 100 million passengers.

GROWTH DRIVER 3: GLOBAL EVENTS

The infrastructure market in both Qatar and the UAE has tremendous growth potential. Hosting global events is a major driver of construction activities in both countries. Qatar is expected to spend anywhere upwards of USD 200 billion on new infrastructure projects to host FIFA 2022, an amount almost equivalent to the country’s GDP, which stood at approximately USD 227 billion in 2015. Similarly in the UAE, the total spend on infrastructure projects related to Expo 2020 can reach up to USD 18 billion with estimated development costs of the Dubai South Area, which is where the event will be held, to be between USD 8.1 billion and USD 8.7 billion.

GROWTH DRIVER 4: LONG-TERM GOVERNMENT PLANNING

GCC countries are faced with a common challenge of managing sustainable growth over the long term. This inevitably involves reducing their dependency on oil. Each country has announced plans to target “high potential” sectors through state-led initiatives. Most countries have translated long term plans into specific economic and social objectives with measurable targets that can be linked to various development projects.
Most infrastructure development in the GCC is coming from rail, road, tunnel and bridge projects. The combined estimated value of these projects is USD 336.8 billion and constitutes 83% of all infrastructure project values in the region.
