Special Economic Zones: A New Era for Growth

Saudi Arabia has recently announced the inauguration of four Special Economic Zones (SEZs), designed to spur advancements in pivotal sectors like advanced manufacturing, cloud computing, and med-tech. These SEZs include the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) SEZ, Jazan SEZ, Ras Al Khair SEZ, and the Cloud Computing SEZ housed within the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).

These SEZs pivot towards enticing businesses through attractive incentives such as tax reductions, exemptions, and lenient regulations concerning foreign talent. Covering an array of sectors like logistics, shipbuilding, and food production, the SEZs are a strategic component of Saudi Vision 2030. They are anticipated to catalyze a boom in construction and infrastructure projects, thereby profoundly impacting the elevator and escalator market across the GCC.

Urbanization and Its Impact on Elevator Demand

The surging urban population, particularly in metropolitan regions, is expected to trigger a significant increase in elevator demand. Following the introduction of the Real Estate Transaction Tax (RETT) in October 2020, Saudi Arabia reduced the VAT from 15% to 5% to reinvigorate its real estate sector. This policy shift aims to boost property transactions and enhance residential ownership rates, which in turn, will drive residential segment demand.

As for Kuwait, the country utilized approximately 99.45 million square meters for private housing in 2022, with projections to exceed 100 million square meters in 2023. The Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) in Kuwait is orchestrating the construction of new cities designed to accommodate their growing housing demands.

Furthermore, in Bahrain, the government is actively addressing housing needs through new developments. As of the first quarter of 2023, the Minister of Housing and Urban Planning announced the initiation of tenders for 771 housing units and apartments. This project encapsulates the broad initiative that encompasses government land development rights, in collaboration with the private sector, targeting the completion of 19,000 housing units supported by an investment of USD 2.6 billion.
