GCC prefabricated buildings industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 5.3% during the forecast period. The factors driving the growth of the market are the government's strong economic diversification plans, which include developing and diversifying the economy and releasing its growth potential, with the ultimate goal of promoting development and competitiveness through increased government spending on key non-oil sectors and stimulating private investments. The market is driven by the increasing construction activities across the region and the lack of affordable houses for migrants working for the ongoing development projects in the GCC region.

The prefabricated construction industry in GCC has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The pandemic has impacted the growth across key sectors over the short to medium term and recovery is expected to be slow. The spread of coronavirus has dealt a severe blow to the prefabricated construction sector in Kuwait, with the number of building permits plunging by 40% in 2020. Official data showed permits for private residential buildings dipped by around 46% in the first 10 months of 2020 compared with the same period of 2019. The residential construction industry in Saudi Arabia is facing a shortage of affordable housing as a result of a growing population and an influx of migrants. This has encouraged the demand for prefabricated homes, as they are cost-effective and time-efficient. Moreover, energy efficiency, design flexibility, and faster completion are some of the other advantages of prefabricated buildings, which are anticipated to drive market growth.

Key Market Trends

Government Initiatives Driving the Construction Market

The GCC countries are focusing on economic diversification to reduce dependence on the oil and gas sector. To end this, they are planning a long-term strategy for sustainable growth. Therefore, they have chosen prefabricated buildings and structural steel in the construction sector.
