BMI View:
Saudi Arabia's metals sector is poised for rapid growth in terms of consumption over the next few years as a booming construction industry stokes demand for steel and aluminium as well as well as key base metals such as iron ore. While domestic output will continue to grow at a steady pace, we expect the country's output gap to widen across the main metals sub-sectors, leaving the country ever more reliant on imports to meet demand.

During 2015, Saudi Arabian metals producers will struggle increasingly to meet the growing demands of the country's construction sector and wider economy. The country is in the middle of an infrastructure boom with the Saudi government funnelling increasing levels of investment into the housing sector in particular as it looks to reduce a significant shortfall in affordable housing. Meanwhile, the new economic cities programme continues to support rapid growth in infrastructure spending as Riyadh looks to support the development of the non-oil economy. Increased capacity across the domestic metals sector will go some way to supporting this demand with Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) set to significantly expand production at one of its largest refineries over the next few years. Meanwhile, December 2014 saw Saudi Arabian mining company Ma'aden's begin commercial operations at its aluminium smelter at Ras al-Khair, which it owns as part of a joint venture (JV) with US-based Alcoa.
