Capitalizing on infrastructure development
The UAE and other GCC nations are undertaking numerous infrastructure, logistics, residential, and commercial projects to drive economic growth, creating a sustained demand for machinery and equipment. The growing demand will be further supported by the UAE government’s plan for capital infusion in several upcoming infrastructure projects. It intends to invest AED84 billion (USD23 billion) in projects, including Etihad Rail, the hyperloop project between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed double-deck road project, among many others.
Furthermore, the promising growth in the global construction industry is creating a positive outlook for manufacturers and distributors of construction equipment. Construction equipment companies will benefit from large projects worldwide, such as port extensions, underwater tunnels, and rail and road infrastructure expansion. The global construction market is expected to grow by USD4.5 trillion between 2020 and 2030 to reach USD15.2 trillion, with USD8.9 trillion in emerging markets in 2030. Companies based in Dubai can capitalise on its strategic location, which allows them to tap into emerging markets.
After-sales services are crucial for companies that deal in the construction equipment sector. They require the ability to distribute the parts and fulfil the service requirements promptly. Hence, proximity to the suppliers and distributors becomes crucial for these companies. Companies are therefore seeking to re-evaluate their supply chain strategy to reduce lead times and procurement costs.
