United Arab Emirates Infrastructure Report Q2 2015

BMI View: We expect strong growth in the UAE's construction sector for 2015 and over the next five years.

The drop in oil prices will not have a significant impact on the UAE's project pipeline and the Emirate'scontinue to invest in their transport and energy infrastructure - particularly railways. The residential andnon-residential building outlook remains positive as measures to cool the market take effect.

Factors Driving Construction Industry Growth

Lower oil prices pose little threat to the UAE's construction industry outlook. Abu Dhabi has the largestinfrastructure investment programme in the UAE, with the water and power sectors securing AED17.5bn(USD4.7bn) in government financing over the next five years. Following this, the housing and socialinfrastructure sectors secured AED12.7bn (USD3.4bn). Dubai and the Northern Emirates' fiscal position,which is much less reliant on oil revenues, will be buoyed by our expectation for growth in the nonhydrocarbonssectors.

Although the market cooled somewhat over recent months, we do not expect any major risks to ourbuoyant outlook to the residential building outlook. Numerous measures have been undertaken, such asrent caps and requirements of about 50% payment before property transfers hands, in order to preventspeculative buyers from overheating the residential market. Additionally, tax increases for Indian buyersshould cool demand in the market.
