Israel is expected to witness the highest growth rates of the region (CAGR 20.4%), but the UAE will absorb the biggest share of these materials.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the other hand, is witnessing a rapid phase of development and re-orientation of priorities under the newly devised strategies outlined in Vision2030, a guideline to become an excelling nation in the Middle East within the stipulated timescale. Diminishing oil reserves in the country has called for alternative means of revenue generation and accordingly, the Kingdom has responded by revamping its FDI policies in the recent years and is open to embracing innovative technologies as a means of support to its ambitious drive.
