Ken Research announced its latest publication on, “Commercial Construction in Qatar to 2019: Market Forecast” which provides a detailed analysis of the Qatar Commercial Construction industry. Category-wise coverage of different segments in the industry have also included in the report. New projects launched by the government for enhancement of the sector are explained in the report. The report enables the reader to interpret future outlook on how the market will shape up by the end of this decade.
Qatar Commercial Construction Market is one of the largest construction markets around the world. The industry’s output showed a compound annual growth rate of 15.6% in real terms during the period 2011-2015.
The country is rich in its oil and gas reserves and these were the key factors which were contributing to the strong economy state. Lower oil prices are invoking the government to diversify and become less reliant on its natural reserves. This leads to high level of spending on infrastructure which drives the growth of commercial construction market.
The government is focusing on improving the transport and tourism infrastructure for which it has launched the “Qatar National Tourism Sector Strategy 2030”. The purpose of the project is to increase the travel and tourism share in GDP by 2030. As a result, this will increase the total Commercial Construction spending. The single biggest event which will boost the construction sector is the hosting of 2022 Fifa World Cup and in line with the country’s 2020 Qatar National Vision.
Major infrastructure projects like new roads, highways, expansion of the Hamad International Airport and new metro in Doha are undertaken for the same. Transport projects have the largest share of value as well as volume in the construction market. These plans will create demand for construction over the next few years.
