STEELFAB 2014 -
BANKING ON CORE SECTOR GROWTH
The buzz surrounding the regional economic growth is having a ripple effect on the core sector that drives the steel fabrication and metal working sector.
Construction projects worth billions of dollars are active in the region, with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar being leading markets.
The flourishing industrial & manufacturing sectors and the oil & gas industry are also fuelling the steel fabrication sector, which will need to look at acquiring new machinery and technology to enhance production to meet rising requirements.
Another sector driving demand growth is the region’s pipeline industry, which is planning to invest billions of dollars to boost its capacities, as oil prices continue to remain bullish.
Demand has also been consistent from several other sectors, including ship-building, food, construction and infrastructure.
