The GCC represents one of the few fast-growing project markets in the world today. Over the last 10 years more than $800bn worth of projects have been awarded in the region, while there are another $1 trillion worth of schemes in the tendering or planning stages.

For the first time MEED Insight has produced projects market reports covering all six GCC states – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. This latest market intelligence product provides a complete analysis and overview of the project market opportunities, events, challenges and forecasts for the whole GCC through six individual reports that can be purchased as a single bundle offer.
