One of the main reasons why a number of investors are looking to pour money into construction projects in Bahrain is the gap between demand and supply. It has been observed that the housing supply in the country is lower than its demand and this gives residential developers immense opportunities, especially in providing affordable housing solutions to the middle- and lower-income groups. Targeting this particular strata of the society, the government – under the Government Action Plan – is looking to construct 65,000 housing units in the country by 2020. 

Another effort by the government in Bahrain is modernizing and expanding airport services. With the aim of meeting the anticipated surge in cargo, passenger, and air traffic, efforts are on to build a world-class aviation infrastructure. In light of this, the government is constructing the Bahrain International Airport (BIA) as part of its Airport Modernization Programme. The contract of building the new terminal was awarded to a joint venture between Turkey-based TAV Construction and Dubai’s Arabtec Construction. 

A key trend that is likely to emerge in the Bahrain construction industry is arising focus on green buildings. There has been a major shift in the mindset of the people in this country, which has resulted in growing interest in curbing energy conservation and costs. This interest is also being reflected in the activities of construction companies, who are looking to find sustainable ways of construction. 

The leading players evaluated in this report are Arabian Dredging Company WLL, Poullaides Construction Company WLL, Nass Corporation BSC, OAK Utility Solutions and Development WLL, and Ahmed Mansoor Al Aali Group of Companies.
