Press Release   •   Jun 10, 2013 12:45 IST

Booming construction activities in Saudi Arabia has lead to significant steel demand and made the country one of the favorite destinations for steel manufacturers. The Kingdom comprises the largest construction market in the Gulf region with multi-billion dollar projects under way through both public and private sectors. Several of Saudi Arabia’s major cities – Jeddah, Riyadh and Mecca and surrounding areas are going to benefit from the Kingdom’s plans to roll out public transport and construction projects in the coming years. In addition, the government capital expenditure for the construction projects has been rising continuously. Presently, the government has decided to spend 2% higher than the previous year for the upcoming construction project.

In their latest research study, “Saudi Arabia Steel Industry Forecast 2017”, RNCOS analysts identified that steel consumption in the Kingdom has gone up at a faster pace over a decade. The main factors are rising construction activities, growing investment in railway, infrastructure and road projects, and cheap and reliable energy supply. In 2012, the steel consumption in the country experienced double-digit growth; and in future, the apparent steel consumption is anticipated to grow at a CAGR 11.7% during 2013-2017.
