Riyadh – October 18th, 2015: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) construction industry is expected to continue its growth for the next few years, fuelled by massive construction projects, particularly around social and transport infrastructure that offer multi-billion-Saudi Riyals opportunities to contractors and investors. The local market is set to witness a pick-up in project activity supported by increasing private and public investments, boosting the projects’ numbers and values. Currently, the KSA’s general real estate sector is valued at SAR 2250 billion, while infrastructure amounts to SAR 1312.25 billion and on-going projects represent 82.4 per cent of total construction activity, showing the continuous development and growth.
Hailed as the largest business-to-business construction fair in the Kingdom, Saudi Build plays a leading role in the transfer of technology between the KSA and its trading partners. Throughout its 27-year history, the exhibition has provided a dedicated avenue for tens of thousands of leading manufacturers and exporters from all over the world and hundreds of thousands of importers and industry professionals from across the region. It has facilitated the leveraging of numerous opportunities in the KSA’s construction market, proving to be the focal point for its growing and diverse construction market.
