KSA accounts for 39 per cent of GCC's total construction sector
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is one of the most lucrative construction markets in the Middle East, accounting for almost 39 per cent of GCC projects. The country’s construction sector is expected to grow by almost 7.2 per cent in 2014, driven by huge government investments into the development of large-scale infrastructure and construction projects. With a gradual easing of labour and material shortages during the second half of 2014, Saudi construction sector is predicted to further its ongoing growth during 2015 onwards.
To be held from November 10 to 13, 2014 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center, Saudi Build 2014 – the 26th International Construction Technology and Building Materials Trade Show - will present an eyed platform to position the KSA as the biggest construction market in the region. The show will gather international and local companies over four days to showcase the latest industry solutions to the local and regional markets.
