Construction Sector in Qatar
The successful bid for any investor

The government’s aim to diversify the economy, with an emphasis on non-oil sectors, will drive funding towards construction projects over the forecast period (2018- 2022). In addition, government efforts to upgrade the country's transport infrastructure and 2022 FIFA World Cup construction works will support the industry's growth. In fact, the construction industry's output value is expected to grow at 15.13% between 2018 and 2022, according to a Timetrics report.

Building upon robust investment and trade potential in Qatar’s vibrant construction market, Project Qatar, the International Construction Technology and Building Materials Exhibition, returns for its 16th edition to bridge the gap between investors, suppliers and major project owners and buyers in Qatar.

The exhibition attracts leading brands from around the world, and connects industry professionals to high-ranking decision makers in Qatar, making way for lucrative partnerships and agreements.
