The Middle East façade market is expected to witness a strong growth rate of 8.5% during the forecast period. The façade is the barrier between the interior and exterior environments of a building and has become an integral part of the building construction. The impact of building façades has become more important than ever in determining the operational and economic performance of construction projects.
The increasing construction projects and activities coupled with the increasing number of smart city projects, and high performance in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability are some of the key factors expected to drive the demand for the Middle East facades market. The GCC countries are accepting the smart city framework to address their urban challenges, thus driving the demand for facades.
Growing construction projects to pump up the demand of the regional market
Based on material, glass is expected to hold a prominent share in the Middle East facade market. The reason behind the excessive use of glass facades is that glass as a building material delivers beauty, visibility, and light transmission. Glass transmits up to 80% of natural daylight and helps in energy and cost saving. In addition, the construction industry is growing at a significant pace in Middle East countries for the past couple of years and is expected to grow at a considerable growth rate in the upcoming future.
As per the RationalStat Analysis, the Middle East and North African construction market valued at over US$ 330 billion in 2020, up from around US$ 235 billion in 2016, a net growth of 43%. This prominent growth in the construction segment has led to the increasing demand for various types of facades, in which glass façade remains the most popular.
GCC remains the frontrunner in the Middle East
In GCC, UAE is dominating the regional façade market and is anticipated to dominate in the upcoming years as well, mainly driven by the increasing construction projects and growing focus on the development of smart cities in the country. Saudi Arabia follows UAE in terms of the value of the regional façade market in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a moderate rate in Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain.
However, in Turkey there are various government rules and regulations related to fire protection for use of curtain wall facades, thus the market for curtain wall façades in Turkey is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. However, the demand for façades in Israel is expected to expand significantly on the back of the growing construction sector.
