Qatar’s construction industry is forecasted to be valued at US$76 billion by 2027 and with a total investment of US$16.4 billion targeted for infrastructure and real estate projects by 2025, under the Qatar National Vision 2030. An interesting part of this investment is the nation’s commitment to sustainable and innovative construction practices that creates room for businesses specializing in green technologies and sustainability solutions. When this is coupled with public-private partnerships and foreign investments, it harnesses a favorable business environment.
As Qatar's economy continues to surge with a forecasted 4.9% GDP growth in 2023, driven by the ambitious Vision 2030 development plans, the stage is set to supercharge opportunities within the regional construction and interiors sectors.
