The report provides a detailed analysis of the infrastructure sector in Saudi Arabia, including the state of current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes, forecast spending across all key sectors and the major projects in the construction pipeline.

The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.

With a young and growing population, together with rapid growth in urbanization and industrialization, Saudi Arabia is expected to maintain its position as the Middle East’s largest construction market.

Demand is on the rise for industrial properties, including industrial cities and logistic facilities, and transportation and utilities projects are also being planned.

Having declined by 2.5% in 2016 amid the impact of lower oil production, weaker economic growth, and fiscal consolidation measures, the infrastructure sector is expected to rebound in 2017 due to higher infrastructure spending and a resumption of government payments to contractors.

According to Timetric’s Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), the infrastructure construction market’s value is projected to reach SAR124 billion (US$33.1 billion) in 2017 and SAR140.8 billion (US$37.5 billion) by 2021 (in nominal value terms). This is based on the assumption that a number of large-scale projects will proceed as planned, including a number of transport projects such as the Riyadh Metro, the Makkah Metro and the King Abdulaziz International Airport Expansion.

Key Highlights
Timetric is currently tracking 111 strategic infrastructure construction projects in Saudi Arabia, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$446.7 billion.

Electricity and power projects account for the largest share of the infrastructure projects in the pipeline, with a total value of US$274.8 billion. This is followed by railway projects with a pipeline value of US$90.9 billion, airports and other infrastructure with US$72.1 billion, water and sewerage with US$4.5 billion and road projects with a total pipeline value ofU$4.4 billion.

In April 2016, the Saudi government launched Saudi Vision 2030, a strategy that includes various economic and social policies, objectives, and commitments aimed at ensuring the continuous development of the country, while reducing Saudi Arabia’s reliance on oil revenues and government spending. Under the ambitious reform agenda, the government seeks to drive the non-oil economy and stimulate private investment in state activities. A few months after announcing the vision, the government published the National Transformation Program 2020 (NTP 2020), setting out a number of targets under which it expects to achieve its medium-term goals of Saudi Vision 2030.
