Edit:HanZi     Click:3657     Time:2010-10-29 19:26:26
Saudi Arabia represents one of the fastest growing steel industries in the Middle East. Over the past few years, the rapid economic development has led to skyrocketing growth in the construction and infrastructure industry, which has boosted steel demand in the country and caught the attention of global steel giants.

According to our new research report 'Saudi Arabia Steel Industry Forecast to 2013', steel consumption in Saudi Arabia has rapidly surged over the past few years on the back of construction boom, growing investment in real estate and cheap & reliable gas/energy supply. Economic growth has also contributed substantially to raise domestic steel consumption by accelerating business activities. In fact, the impact of economic slowdown on the real estate projects was minimal. Out of the total real estate projects worth US$ 543 Billion, mere 4% have been cancelled or delayed. Hence, all these factors have fueled the consumption of iron and steel in the Kingdom to reach around 14.8 Million Metric Tons in 2009.

At present, the steel industry in Saudi Arabia is highly import oriented. In 2008, the Kingdom imported around 6.3 Million Metric Tons of steel which accounted for majority of domestic steel consumption. However, the situation is expected to reverse in future with the escalation of domestic production. We anticipate that the share of imported steel will see a downward trend in coming years as several major capacity expansion plans of manufacturers under pipeline.

The report has identified that increase real estate projects in different parts of the country are currently the key boosters, and this trend coupled with government initiatives will play a greater role in promoting reforms and increasing competitiveness.
