GCC Real Estate Market Trends:

Government initiatives and economic diversification

The GCC real estate market report states that the escalating governmental initiatives throughout the GCC to diversify their economies away from being over-reliant on oil is driving the market. Along with this, huge infrastructure projects are being undertaken to create new cities, transport networks, and entertainment places to attract local and foreign investments. Such programs are part of a broader national vision that also involves Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 and the UAE Vision 2021, in which a diversified economic fabric is sought through the help of non-oil industries. The UAE was ranked fourth in the world for the quality of its infrastructure in the Global Competitive Report 2023 which was released by the World Economic Forum. A total of 258 projects were undertaken by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure over the last decade at an investment of AED 13 billion. In addition, free zones and business-friendly regulations further increase the growth of commercial real estate, inviting more multinational corporations to set up GCC headquarters. According to the GCC real estate market forecast, such encouraging government policies set up a favorable environment for real estate development and, hence, market growth as demand for residential, commercial, and mixed-use properties will increase.

Population growth and urbanization

The growing population growth and urbanization are key drivers that are positively influencing the GCC real estate market size. High fertility rates and a large number of expatriates constantly immigrating in search of employment are increasing the demand for houses in the GCC. Cities are growing with this new influx, as new residential areas are being set up and old urban facilities are being renovated. Modern, high-quality living spaces and amenities are in demand by the high population of young and high-income individuals. Such urban expansion also flows into the development of retail areas, educational and health facilities, and entertainment zones. The salient features of unbridled urban sprawl and increasing living standards, therefore, provide the real estate sector with reasons for high growth. The ongoing expansion of urban areas is prompting the construction of diverse property types, from luxury apartments to functional commercial spaces, further broadening the scope of the real estate market. As a result, these factors are significantly increasing the GCC real estate market share.

Tourism and hospitality sector growth

The growing tourism and hospitality are impacting the GCC real estate market. Additionally, the escalating investments into the infrastructure in countries such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia host a global audience in terms of hotels, resorts, and other leisure facilities is significantly increasing real estate demand in GCC. Along with this, the accelerating number of high-profile events in Dubai and the ongoing buzz around Saudi Arabian tourism projects which are attracting global attention and investment is also favoring the market. The hospitality growth is providing supportive real estate in the form of retail, food and beverage, and leisure facilities. Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) has launched the 'Dubai Sustainable Tourism Stamp' certification in a move that will assist and empower the tourism sector in supporting the country's sustainability goals, among which is the UAE's NetZero 2050 initiative. The aim is to position Dubai as one of the most prominent global destinations for sustainable tourism, ideally, the best city to visit, live, and work in. An increasing number of short-term accommodations, in turn, bring interest to make long-term residential investments, especially in tourist-driven areas. Thus, the growth in tourism helps the overall GCC real estate market growth and diversification of the market.
