According to our new research report, “UAE Steel Industry Analysis”, despite being affected by the ongoing financial crisis, the steel industry of the UAE is expected to witness good time ahead. Various upcoming infrastructure projects will drive the steel demand in the UAE. It is expected that the UAE’s steel consumption will reach 15 Million Tons by the end of 2012, an increase of around 50% from the consumption level of 2007.

The report highlights that the construction boom in the UAE is the major driving force behind the growth of its steel industry. It is expected that in coming two years, a total of US$ 392 Billion will be spend on construction activities.
