Mumbai, India (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- Saudi Arabia has emerged as one of the favored destinations for real estate developers to tap unexplored opportunities in housing construction sector. At present the kingdom is facing massive shortage of housing units because of huge demand-supply gap. Rising population coupled with declining household size has been fuelling the demand of housing units in the country. Saudi housing construction industry is poised for tremendous growth ahead in the backdrop of several factors that have been discussed in the report in detail. As per data from the Ministry of Economy and Planningâs 8th Development Plan (2005-2009), there is shortage of nearly 0.73 Million housing units in the kingdom besides the unmet housing demand of 0.27 Million housing units by the end of 7th Development Plan. We expect this demand to double by 2015, driven by changing industry landscape and favorable policy framework.
