• The surge in real estate & public infrastructure projects supports the demand for tower cranes in the region. For instance, Zoomlion exports eight large tonnage flat-top tower cranes from China to construct Kuwait International Airport’s new terminal. The flat-top tower crane provides a high lifting capacity & long boom length, which makes it suitable for hoisting heavy prefabricated concrete components. Other major OEMs in the region, such as XCMG, Liebherr, Hyundai construction machinery, & SANY, are expected to upgrade the existing tower crane to capture the growing demand for tower cranes in the region.


A surge in Investment in Public Infrastructure & Renovation Projects

The government has planned to invest $65 billion in infrastructure projects, including health, power, road, and railways. The government also increased the funding for housing sectors, and various housing renovation projects are planned in the regions like Souq Al Mubarakiya region of the country.
