Elevator and escalator market in the GCC: Increasing government spending on the construction sector

Additionally, the delay by governments in paying contractors negatively impacted the sector and pushed some companies out of the market.

According to a senior research analyst at Technavio, The governments have started undertaking many initiatives to stimulate the construction sector and encourage the private sector to play a major role in the process. The governments in the region started to concentrate on diversification to the non-oil sectors such as tourism, aviation, shipping, logistics, and infrastructure.
