With about $900bn of projects planned or underway, the UAE is the Mena regions second biggest projects market. It has about $589bn worth of projects under construction with a pipeline announced but unawarded projects of about $310bn.

The UAEs diverse economic model that is built around Abu Dhabis substantial oil production, and Dubais vibrant real estate and travel sectors. Together these enabled the UAE to weather the worst effects of the fall in prices in 2014, even though tough fiscal adjustments by Abu Dhabi since 2016 led to a collapse in projects activity in Abu Dhabi and a general economic slowdown. This was offset by Dubais ability to maintain real estate developments, particularly around the Expo 2020. Dubai was the regions strongest project market in 2016 and 2017.

A strategic location for trade, with strong financial reserves and considerable oil wealth, the UAE has enormous potential to generate abundant new project opportunities, particularly in the real estate, transport oil and gas, and power sectors. The UAE economy is expected to grow strongly in 2018, owing to the improvement in oil prices and growth in global trade.

In response to the tightening fiscal situation since 2015, the government has introduced a number of measures over the past three year aimed at minimising budget deficits and government debt. These have included the introduction of 5 per cent VAT on 1 January 2018, and cuts to energy subsidies. The UAEs Vision 2021 strategy sets out reforms aimed at making the UAE one of the most competitive countries in the world. The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and the Dubai Plan 2021 are the major plans ongoing in the UAE.

Project contract awards fell to $41bn in 2016, as a result of cuts in government spending. Dubai Expo 2020 will be a significant driver for the projects market in the UAE in 2019 and 2020. According to the IMF, Dubais economy is expected to grow at 4.2 per cent in 2019 ahead of Expo 2020.

Written by MEED, the Middle East market experts within the GlobalData Group, Abu Dhabi plans to grow its crude oil production to 3.5 million barrels a-day (b/d) by 2020, by implementing enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques for its mature and existing oil fields. It is also increasing production of drinking water to reach 2.19 billion cubic meters by 2019, by increasing the desalination capacity. UAE transport infrastructure is going through a major upgrade. Government initiatives to upgrade the airports, roadways, and ports to cater to the expected influx of tourists due to the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020 will be a major driver of transport projects.
