DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "KSA Building Construction Industry November 2011" report to their offering.

Bolstered and shielded by its strong oil reserves and determined government plans for economic development through diversification and investment programs, which include the development of the renowned six economic cities across the kingdom, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is one of the fastest growing emerging markets of the Middle East. Its rapidly growing and fast urbanizing young population constantly fuel demand across the commercial, residential and retail segments of the market while housing the world's two popular religious shrines Mecca and Medina, the country also attracts large tourism revenues further fueling demand in the tourism and leisure segments as well. Spurred by these factors, the building construction industry in Saudi Arabia has witnessed unprecedented growth in recent years with the construction contract awards likely to grow from an estimated US$ 36,529 million in 2011 by a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of nearly 20 percent to US$ 43,779 million in 2013, in spite of the adverse effects of the global economic slowdown that has hit growth across the industry in the Middle East.

While the Saudi market continues to face its share of project delays, conservative banking policies, delays in execution of laws, lack of transparency and the adverse effects of the global economic slowdown, it continues to be a comparatively rising star, which is likely to witness a steady and healthy growth in its construction industry in the medium and long term as compared to its counterparts due to the earnest efforts of the government through its planned diversification based investment schemes and its healthy demand growth across sectors.
