Optimal Opportunities In The Saudi Steel Market

Saudi Arabia is considering a wealth of business opportunities with multi-billion dollar projects. It is expected to sustain its leadership in construction activities in the entire Middle East as it has gained a significant share by USD 400 billion investments in the total GCC construction spending which is estimated by US$ 543 Billion in the upcoming 5 years. This will further boost the steel demand in the country and take iron and steel consumption to over 26 million tonnes by 2015.

At present, the steel industry in Saudi Arabia is highly import-oriented. However, the situation is expected to reverse in future with the escalation of domestic production. The share of imported steel will see a downward trend in coming years as several major capacity expansion plans of manufacturers under pipeline.

The factors which will drive growth in Saudi Arabia's steel industry during the forecast period include the increase in real estate projects in different parts of the country being currently a key booster, and this trend coupled with government initiatives will play a greater role in promoting reforms and increasing competitiveness.
