Construction in the UAE - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

Following two years of contraction, the UAE construction industry rebounded in 2018, and registered a growth of 4.2% in real terms. Consequently, the industry’s output value, measured at constant 2017 US dollar exchange rates, increased from US$77.4 billion in 2017 to US$80.7 billion in 2018; this growth can be attributed to recovery in crude oil prices, a rise in non-oil product exports and a decrease in the fiscal deficit.

Recovery in the country’s construction industry is expected to continue over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by a declining budget deficit and improving investor confidence, which will support new investments in residential, energy and utilities, infrastructure and commercial construction projects. Furthermore, an increase in crude oil production and government efforts to diversify the economy are expected to drive investment in the UAE construction industry over the forecast period.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.64% over the forecast period - up from 1.08% during the review period (2014-2018). Investments in transport, energy and social infrastructure development projects under various programs will support the industry’s expansion over the forecast period. Notable some of these being the Ministry of Education Strategic Plan 2017-2021, National Strategy for Higher Education 2030 and Education 2020 Strategy, the Energy Strategy 2050, the Sheikh Zayed Housing Program and the Dubai Tourism Strategy. The industry is consequently expected to rise from a value of US$80.7 billion in 2018 to US$101.2 billion in 2023, measured at constant 2017 US dollar exchange rates.

Residential construction was the largest market in the UAE construction industry during the review period, accounting for 33.1% of the industry’s total value in 2018. The market is expected to retain its position over the forecast period, with residential construction accounting for 33.1% of the industry’s total value in 2023. More so, this market output is expected to be supported by government efforts to balance housing demand and supply through the construction of housing units

The energy and utilities construction was the second-largest market in the UAE construction industry during the review period, accounting for 26.7% of the industry’s total value in 2018. This market is expected to follow a similar trend over the forecast period, with energy and utilities construction accounting for 26.3% of the industry’s total value in 2023. This sector would also be supported by the government’s plan to invest AED600.0 billion (US$163.0 billion) to develop renewable energy projects in the country by 2050.
