Infrastructure Insight: Saudi Arabia
The report provides a detailed analysis of the infrastructure sector in Saudi Arabia, including the state of current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes, forecast spending across all key sectors and the major projects in the construction pipeline.
The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.
With a young and growing population, together with rapid growth in urbanization and industrialization, Saudi Arabia is expected to maintain its position as the Middle East’s largest construction market.
Demand is on the rise for industrial properties, including industrial cities and logistic facilities, and transportation and utilities projects are also being planned.
Having declined by 2.5% in 2016 amid the impact of lower oil production, weaker economic growth, and fiscal consolidation measures, the infrastructure sector is expected to rebound in 2017 due to higher infrastructure spending and a resumption of government payments to contractors.
According to Timetric’s Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), the infrastructure construction market’s value is projected to reach SAR124 billion (US$33.1 billion) in 2017 and SAR140.8 billion (US$37.5 billion) by 2021 (in nominal value terms). This is based on the assumption that a number of large-scale projects will proceed as planned, including a number of transport projects such as the Riyadh Metro, the Makkah Metro and the King Abdulaziz International Airport Expansion.
