With overall market statistics and named project information, the report once again provides unique detail on the commercial, education and healthcare fit out opportunities available to North American companies in the Middle East region.
An extract from the overall conclusion of the Report confirms as follows :
The GCC’s fit out industry has its hands full heading into 2016 due to heightened construction activity, and the completion of structural works on large-scale. Fit out operations have evolved in line with industry changes, and modern fit out designs and practices are transitioning to suit international standards. This evolution can be attributed to the rapid globalisation ambitions of local GCC markets such as the UAE and Qatar.
As sustainability has become a major issue, the fit out industry has experienced increased pressure to implement environmentally-responsible practices.
Despite the slump in oil prices, the GCC building construction and interiors market is clearly set for a sustained upward stint over the next few years.
– The GCC interiors and fit out spend in the Commercial Sector is expected to increase from US$ 1,150 million in 2015 to US$ 1,168 million in 2016.
– All GCC countries are likely to register an upward trend in 2016 in terms of interior and fit outs spend except for Saudi Arabia.
– The interiors and fit out spend in the UAE Commercial Sector alone is likely to increase from US$ 328 million in 2015 to US$ 350 million in 2016.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The city with the world’s tallest building can now boast that it’s home to the world’s busiest airport for international passengers too.
Dubai’s airport operator released figures Tuesday showing that 70.5 million passengers streamed through the sparkling halls of Dubai International last year. That’s a 6 percent increase over the 66.4 million that the Gulf city’s main airport handled in 2013.
The rapid growth puts Dubai squarely ahead of London Heathrow for the first time on a full-year basis as the world’s busiest international air hub. Heathrow reported handled 68.1 million international passengers in 2014.
Dubai pulled off the big gains despite having to redirect flights to the city’s second airport, Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central, while it overhauled the airport’s two side-by-side runways over the summer.
Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths predicts Dubai International will handle a record 79 million passengers this year as it offers “more flights connecting more people to more destinations.”
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport remains the planet’s busiest passenger airport overall.
But Dubai International is expanding fast, fueled by the growth of hometown airline Emirates and smaller budget carrier FlyDubai. They benefit from Dubai’s position between major population centers in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Both airlines and the airports are owned by the emirate’s government, which has championed aviation as a central driver of the city’s economy.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Dubai has boomed in recent decades and is now the Middle East’s skyscraper-studded, cosmopolitan commercial hub. It is also home to the region’s biggest sea port and the 2,717 foot-tall (828 meter) Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
The airport has been climbing the international aviation traffic rankings for years as it added capacity to accommodate the growing numbers of big wide-body planes like the Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 that Emirates favors.
A new 20-gate concourse purpose-built to handle the double-decker A380 opened in 2013. Yet another new concourse is under construction as part of a wider $7.8 billion expansion plan.

For the second consecutive year, the INDEX and workspace at INDEX exhibitions ran alongside each other at the Dubai World Trade Centre, 19-22 May 2014. With a combined history of 37 years in the marketplace, INDEX and workspace at INDEX form the MENA region’s largest and most attended business-to-business platform for architecture and design professionals seeking to source interior design products and services for their residential, retail, hospitality, commercial, education, and healthcare projects.
Both shows achieved a number of key successes this year, with INDEX achieving a 25% increase in the size of the exhibition, and workspace at INDEX achieving at 116% increase in the total number of attendees – statistics that clearly illustrate the healthy nature of the region’s booming interiors and fit-out industries.
With the number of construction projects in the GCC due to complete in 2014 set to top US$128 billion (a 92% increase on 2013 completions), the level of sales generated as a result of exhibiting at this year’s shows also increased – INDEX reported a 34% increase in the value of orders made and workspace at INDEX reported a 140% increase in the value of orders placed.
The detailed Post Show Report for the 2014 show is now available for download from our website here, and illustrates in detail the key statistics and success measures for INDEX and workspace at INDEX 2014.
All statistics regarding visitor and exhibitor profiling have been taken from either the 2014 visitor survey or from the final attendance registration reports – both of which are compiled by independent companies.
