A Market on the Rise:

The Kuwaiti construction market is a powerhouse. Valued at $11.2 billion in 2021, it’s projected to grow steadily at an annual rate of over 3% by 2026. This expansion is driven by several key factors:

These endeavors are expected to create a staggering 400,000 jobs! The long-term goal? To foster a thriving environment for innovation and move away from a reliance on oil.
