Key Market Trends

Increasing Population Growth in Qatar

  • To increase the transportation infrastructure activities, investments are being made to improve existing infrastructure, such as extending the roads and rails, planning new construction across the country, and improving damaged structures by repairing them.
  • The rapid growth of continuing urbanization is a major driver of transportation infrastructure investment. As per the World Bank, in 2020, the world population reached 7.8 billion.
  • New transportation infrastructure is required in developing countries to enable population transfer from rural to urban areas, and existing infrastructures in developed countries must be improved to improve resilience, improve the environment, and reduce maintenance costs.
  • Companies could use new and emerging technology to improve public services such as mobility and well-being, interact more effectively with citizens, increase productivity, and solve environmental and sustainability issues.

Major Infrastructure Developments in the Country

The construction sector is one of the fastest-growing sectors in Qatar, with the government planning to spend over USD 200 billion as part of its infrastructure investment. Major transport projects, coupled with the rapid expansion of tourism, education, and real estate, are expected to dominate economic diversification efforts under the auspices of Qatar National Vision 2030, while the 2022 FIFA World Cup has set a mid-term deadline for a number of high-profile projects.

Qatar is investing heavily in developing infrastructure and construction projects, with USD 220+ billion invested in road networks, stadiums, facilities, and numerous major projects, including hotels, leisure, and recreation in the planning or construction phase.

Qatari Diar remains the largest project client in Qatar in terms of the value of projects in execution. Its USD 17 billion mixed-use Lusali City is still considered one of the largest projects in the country. Other major projects include the FIFA World Cup 2022 stadiums, extension of the New Doha port pro, extension of Hamad International Airport, expressways, and road drainage projects run by the Public Works Authority (Ashghal), and development of free zones, led by the newly established Free Zone Authority.

  • Many construction service providers and facility management companies are in the race to enter the Qatari market in terms of services. Companies have partnered with developers to offer after-construction services. As towers, low-rise buildings, stadiums, and malls get built and are near completion, the country's facility management market is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years.

Recent Developments

  • In February 2022, Iran and Qatar planned to launch regular shipping lines between the two countries’ ports. The statement came after meetings with Qatari trade and transport officials concerning the development of transport, commercial, and economic ties between the two countries. Iran and Qatar also agreed to expand cooperation between Qatar Air and Iranian connections. Iran is a principal connectivity route between Europe and Asia via the International North-South Transportation Corridor (INSTC), which offers multi-modal connections between India to the Iranian Gulf Ports at Bandar Abbas and Chabahar. From there, goods can transit Iran north via rail to the Caspian Sea ports at Anzali and then onwards to Baku Port in Azerbaijan, heading West via rail to Turkey and Europe via the Black Sea, North to Russia at Lagan Port, or East to Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan into Central Asia. The multi-modal operations give faster connections than the current Suez Canal link.
  • In August 2021, the Public Works Authority in Qatar Ashghal signed nine contracts worth USD 989 million with Qatari companies for road and infrastructure projects in new citizens’ sub-divisions. The project was awarded to Hamad Bin Khaled Contracting Company at a total value of about USD 171 million to serve 591 plots. The scope of work includes road works with a length of about 35.7 km, pedestrian and cycle paths with a total length of about 47 km, 1,315 lighting poles, and 4,310 car parks. In addition, the project will provide surface and groundwater drainage networks, a sewage network, and a TSE network.
