October 24, 2015: The KSA’s construction sector will continue its growth for the next few years in light of the value of ongoing and planned projects for transport, infrastructure, utilities, education, and healthcare collectively worth an estimated USD 1 trillion-plus. Driven by strong demographic expansion and the Saudi Government’s capital investment programs, the industry will continue its regional dominance as the biggest construction market for some time. The burgeoning Saudi construction sector has given a tremendous boost for both local and international private sector companies to be key players in its growth and expansion.
The number of ongoing and planned mega projects, including economic cities, airport expansion, healthcare facilities, and railway network expansion will continue to attract many multinational corporations to establish their presence in the KSA.
