Power and desalination is among the three largest sectors in the GCC projects market. Driven by economic and population growth, demand for electricity and water has grown so rapidly that in many instances utilities have struggled to keep up.

In Saudi Arabia, for example, Riyadh needs to build at least 4,000 MW a year of new generating capacity just to keep up with a soaring demand rate. The result has been the investment of hundreds of billions of dollars in new power and desalination plants; in 2011 alone, more than US$18 billion of power and desalination contracts were awarded in the GCC.
