BMI View:

Fuelled by a flurry of contract awards in 2012, we expect to see a buoyant 2013 and beyond.

Whilst the sheer size of the Saudi construction industry will force the growth to moderate in the longer term – largely due to base effects – we nevertheless highlight the vast opportunities within the wider construction sector. Funding – unhampered by any financial woes – is unlikely to run dry, nor lose support, as the government's vast infrastructure investment scheme aims to both diversify away from oil,
but also to keep protests at bay and stave off public discontent.

We forecast a robust 7.5% real industry growth for 2013. This reflects the significant number of contracts awarded both in 2011 (140% year-on-year (y-o-y) increase), and in H212 (50% increase y-o-y), as well as increased government spending, which was pledged in response to popular discontent and the Arab Spring. Over the medium term, we forecast healthy annual average growth of 5.6% between 2013 and 2017.

Factors Underlining Bullish Outlook:
