 Dubai, United Arab Emirates -  23 July  2019:   The six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries saw the announcement of US$125 billion (Dh458.75 billion) worth of new projects during the first six months of 2019, including US$63.5 billion (Dh233 billion) announced in the second quarter of 2019, BNC Construction Intelligence – the largest construction intelligence provider in the MENA region – says in its latest report.
  
 These are part of the estimated 27,000 active projects live in the GCC, worth US$2.52 trillion (Dh9.25 trillion) at the end of H1 2019.
  
 Saudi Arabia was the frontrunner in terms of the US$63.5 billion (Dh233 billion) project announcements, comprising 50 percent of the total project announcement in the second quarter of 2019.
  
 During the first half of 2019, project owners in the GCC countries have also awarded new construction contracts worth US$49 billion (Dh180 billion), a 33 percent jump compared to the corresponding period in 2018.
  
 “GCC project awards during first half of 2019 and the second half of 2018 were consistent, saved by the exponential growth in contract awards seen during the first half of the year and the major spike in utility contract awards during the first quarter of 2019,” says Avin Gidwani, Chief Executive Officer of BNC Network.
  
 “The latest BNC Construction Intelligence provides a robust construction sector – not only in terms of new project announcements, but also new construction contracts and project completion, as the development activities gains momentum despite challenges including geo-political tension across the region and slow global economic growth forecast.”
  
 Countries of the GCC region also witnessed the completion of US$88.5 billion (Dh324.8 billion) worth of construction projects in the first half of 2019, as the construction sector in the GCC remains robust, BNC Construction Intelligence says.
  
 Construction project completions across all economic sectors in the second quarter of 2019 reached US$46.5 billion (Dh170.65 billion), while completions were dominated by the urban construction sector with a 46 percent share of the total value of the completed construction projects. The majority of them were registered in the UAE, the second largest Arab economy. 
  
 BNC Network, the largest construction intelligence platform in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), issued the 8th edition of the BNC Projects Journal titled: Economic Tug-of-War that provides a clear picture of the construction project pipeline in the region.
  
 The latest BNC Projects Journal states that the overall GCC construction market expanded 12 percent year-on-year, with both Saudi Arabia and the UAE growing by 12 percent.
  
 “Geopolitics during the quarter added drama and insecurity to construction as regulatory changes in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, to uplift the market and invite stability and prosperity, were revealed.” added Avin Gidwani.
  
Energy Sector

  The GCC countries have awarded construction contracts for US$29.3 billion (Dh107.53 billion) worth of Oil and Gas projects in the first half of 2019, recording a growth of more than 248.3 percent, compared to US$11.8 billion worth of Oil and Gas construction project awards in the first half of 2018.
  
 The US$29.3 billion (Dh107.53 billion) worth of Oil and Gas project awards in the first half of 2019, surpassed the total Energy sector project awarded in the year 2018 as a whole, BNC Construction Intelligence says. 
  
 Saudi Arabia led GCC Oil and Gas project awards with US$15.8 billion while the UAE led utility project awards with US$4 billion.
  
 In Saudi Arabia, new Oil and Gas projects worth US$20.4 billion were announced in the second quarter of 2019 while projects worth US$11.3 billion were awarded for construction, it says.
  
 In the BNC Projects Journal, BNC offers the latest industry news and information along with detailed analysis and the current market outlook of the construction sector – which is very crucial for those involved in construction, sub-contracting, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) as well as building materials supply businesses.

BNC Projects Journal provides the real story of GCC construction as it happens in a concise and actionable form that allows users to drill down from a story for greater depth and information.
