SAUDI CONSTRUCTION MARKET UPDATE

OVER USD 800 BILLION INVESTED IN SAUDI ARABIA’S CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
More than 5,200 construction projects are currently rolling out in the GCC’s largest and most populous country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a BNC Network report shows. Valued at USD 819 billion, these account for 35% of the total value of active projects across the GCC.
Despite recent challenges faced by the sector attributed to low oil prices and a reported shortage of qualified workers, construction is recording a 4.1% increase this year in KSA. A recent BMI research forecasts the sector’s annualized average growth at 6.13% from 2018 to 2022.
The urban construction sector is the largest contributor to the construction sector’s expansion with 3,727 active projects valued USD 386.4 billion, BNC Network’s report indicates. The utilities sector is the second largest with 733 projects worth USD 95.6 billion, followed by transportation, with 500 projects valued USD 156.2 billion.

•Saudi Arabia hosts 23% of all active construction projects in the GCC, and in dollar terms, these projects account for 34% of the total estimated value.

•The second largest sector in terms of value is the transport sector, with 500 projects worth USD 156.2 billion.

SAUDI PRIVATISATION AND VISION 2030

(Produced in association with Jadwa Investment in July 2018)

•In 2018, the Council of Economic and Development Affairs (CEDA) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia approved the Privatisation Program Delivery Plan with the aim of privatising five government assets by 2020: The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) at Ras Al-Khair station; Four flour mills; Saudi sports clubs; Saudi Post services; A number of transport projects.
•The move is expected to generate SR35-40 billion (USD9.3–10.7 billion) for the government in non-oil revenues and create up to 12,000 jobs.
•Some initiatives will not be fully privatised, but will be corporatised instead. Assets including the ports, King Faisal Hospital & Research Center, and some transport projects will be transformed into government or non-profit corporates.
•One of the key outcomes is to improve and ease access to health services, increasing the private sector’s role in total healthcare spend from 25 to 35% by 2020.
•The transfer of ownership will be done in several forms, including full or partial assets sale, initial public offering (IPO), management buy-outs, public-private ownerships (PPP) and concessions/outsourcing.
•By maximising investment capabilities, the Saudi economy could be the main beneficiary with accumulated government proceeds from asset sales set to reach SR450 billion (USD120 billion) by 2026.

GCC URBAN CONSTRUCTION 2019 AND BEYOND

(Produced by BNC Construction Intelligence in November 2018)

Country Analysis – Saudi Arabia:
•In Saudi Arabia, the launch of the mega city – Neom – reflects the country’s plans to create new economic opportunities. Another project in Saudi Arabia which merits special mention is ‘Amaala’ – a luxury tourism destination spanning across 3,800 kilometers of an untouched nature reserve in Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast.
•Saudi Arabia also lifted a 35-year ban on cinemas in 2018. The Kingdom is therefore expected to host 2,600 cinema screens by 2030, providing massive opportunity to all industry stakeholders.
•The mega-urban development projects like Neom and Amaala tie in with Saudi Vision 2030, which focuses on increasing the role of private sector while diversifying the Kingdom’s economy by developing other sectors such as tourism, healthcare, infrastructure and education.
•In line with the realisation of the vision, Saudi Arabia presented a USD 295 billion budget for the year 2019 – the largest in Kingdom’s history.
•As per BNC Intelligence, there are over 700 projects worth over USD 24 billion in design and tender stages that will pave the way for growth in Saudi Arabia’s urban construction sector in the coming years.
