Saudi Arabia to Create a Significant Demand for the Market

  • In 2018, Saudi Arabia dominated the market in the region. The market openness and investment opportunities were less when compared to other emerging economies. However, the government in its 10th development plan is reforming the economic plans, with investments in diversified sectors, and is trying to attract private investments in the country to make it a diversified economy that is not dependent on oil.
  • Government and private investment in different sectors in the country is expected to lead the increase in the industrial and commercial building and construction activity, which, in turn, may increase the demand for PU hot-melt adhesives in the country in the coming years. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the wooden furniture production in the country.
  • For instance, 14 new furniture factories are currently under construction. This is likely to be a positive factor for the demand for adhesives in the furniture sector during the forecast period.
  • All the aforementioned factors, in turn, are expected to increase the demand for the polyurethane hot-melt adhesives in the country during the forecast period.
