After winning accolades as one of the world’s most eventful construction industries and witnessing a successful property boom up to 2009, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the confederation of seven Emirates in the Gulf and one of the strongest nations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), witnessed a sharp tumble triggered by a debt mounting from leading construction companies which had invested heavily in building construction projects amid the boom and were unable to meet financial commitments. Dubai led the downfall in the markets with property prices and rents crashing as much as 60 percent in 2010 followed by a hasty bailout by Abu Dhabi, the richest of the Emirates. A year later, as Dubai begins to recover on a fragile path of restarting projects shelved by it and restructuring to attract investments afresh, Abu Dhabi which had embarked on an equally ambitious plan under its Vision 2030 and looked like it will outpace Dubai on the global map, has also met a stumbling block. Raising debt has caused the Emirate to tighten its purse strings and relook construction projects with a finer eye on the budget and spending, resulting in delays and cancellations on a large scale in government backed projects across the Emirate.

UAE’s construction sector appears set to return to near-full capacity, with the government announcing it is reactivating a number of major development projects and stepping up spending on social infrastructure development. In the first quarter of 2012, the Abu Dhabi and Dubai governments unveiled its revised construction programme, putting a number of formerly stalled projects on the top of its investment agenda, a move that will revive the spirits of the UAE’s construction sector.

The UAE Government is determined to step up its economy through diversification and investment programs.Its rapidly growing, and fast urbanizing, young population constantly fuel demand across the real estate, infrastructure and utilities segments of the market. While being the region’s hub for tourism activities, the country also attracts large tourism revenues further fuelling demand in the tourism and leisure segments.The construction industry of UAE witnessed construction contract awards to the tune of US$ 28,844 million in 2011, which is expected to increase to US$ 32,841 million by 2012 and US$ 37,983 in 2013.
