In the future, GCC countries will aim to attract higher investments in its construction sector by hosting global events and showcasing itself as a preferred tourist and investor destination.

Qatar, the UAE, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) are expected to continue their leadership streak in the building and infrastructure construction markets, as well as offer the strongest growth opportunities in 2015-2016.

The total value of construction contract awards across the GCC is expected to reach US$194 billion in 2015 (the figures are based on project schedules as of July 2015 taking into account buildings, infrastructure and energy sectors). Qatar, the UAE, and KSA are expected to continue their leadership streak in the building and infrastructure construction markets, as well as offer the strongest growth opportunities in 2015.
