Mr. Ciro Correggi

Below are some of the leading companies who trust constructionHQ to gain market share and increase their products & services exposure in the MENA region and worldwide!
Constructionhq Industry
Driven by the likes of Qatar, the UAE, Oman and Egypt, the MENA region is the fastest growing construction market globally over 2017, according to a research by BMI.
With oil prices set to tick upwards, clearer spending priorities prevailing in a lower oil price environment and major events drawing closer, BMI is forecasting that growth in the MENA region will accelerate to 6% y-o-y in real terms in 2017, versus 5.3% in 2016.
According to MEED Projects, the total value of projects either in the planning stage or in the delivery stage across the GCC is USD2.7Tn, with Saudi Arabia leading the way with USD1.1Tn of projects, followed by the United Arab Emirates with USD830Bn and the remaining total spread across Kuwait, Bahrain, & Qatar.
There are positive macro-economic drivers for construction that include population growth, diversified economic growth, a growing younger labor force, and localized drivers such as Vision 2030 and Expo 2020. In addition to a strong tourism drive for a number of governments across the region.
The global construction industry steadied in 2016, standing at 2.4%, but there will be an improvement in the next five years, with growth averaging 2.8%, according to a new report by Timetric's Construction Intelligence.
The recent OPEC agreement to cut oil production appears to have further stabilized prices. Moreover, the GCC infrastructure market is expected to undergo positive growth over the next few years as the GCC region prepares to host global events such as Dubai Expo – 2020 and FIFA – 2022, according to BNC.

The global construction industry steadied in 2016, standing at 2.4%, but there will be an improvement in the next five years, with growth averaging 2.8%, according to a new report by Timetric's Construction Intelligence.
Asia-Pacific will continue to account for the largest share, given that it includes the large markets of China, Japan and India. The emerging markets of Southeast Asia, notably the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia, will invest heavily in new infrastructure projects, supported by private investment.
The US construction industry is set to continue to post solid growth, supported by the residential sector. Reflecting the extent of the downturn, the industry will just be returning to pre-crisis highs by 2021. Canada’s construction industry has been sluggish, and it will prove difficult to generate fast growth.
By 2021 the value of construction output in Western Europe will stand at USD2.15 trillion. Eastern European will be relatively weak. This primarily reflects the troubled state of the Russian economy, weak commodity prices, and political & economic uncertainties.
Construction activity in Brazil has been weak in recent years, following a sustained recession which resulted in a deteriorating business environment, weak investor confidence and reduction in construction activity.
