Real Estate & Construction
Industry Overview

In a regional market where demographic and economic conditions are constantly changing, it is inevitable to take into consideration the appealing untapped potential in the real estate industry.

On one side, the region is characterized with a young but fast growing population. This demographic feature nourished the housing needs and increased demand for quality retail space. These forces combined together, stimulated the construction industry, already fed by other effects. Consequently, most of the Middle East and GCC countries are characterized with real estate growth that is still based on housing shortage rather than mere speculation.

On the other side, the real estate and construction industry rely heavily on government spending generated by the natural resources income of the region (such as oil, gas, mineral resources...). Although the global recession has seen its turbulent effects reach the region, the announced public actions lead us to believe that the construction industry will prevail and remain thriving for the next years to come. Additionally the abundance of the region's resources will make sure that liquidity keep flowing long after the recession is behind us.
