Cement Market in Saudi Arabia: Key Drivers and Trends
Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The launch of Saudi vision 2030 is notably driving the cement market growth in Saudi Arabia, although factors such as ex-pat levy on foreign nationals may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the cement industry in Saudi Arabia. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Cement Market Driver in Saudi Arabia
One of the key factors driving growth in the cement market in Saudi Arabia is the launch of Saudi Vision 2030. This project aimed to increase the country's economic development while minimizing the dependence on its oil resources. As a first step, the National Transformation Program 2020 was announced to achieve these goals. The government's vision to reduce the dependency on its oil resources is expected to boost the construction segment's growth for both residential and non-residential construction projects. This is expected to be a significant driver for the cement market. The expected growth in infrastructure for religious tourism, healthcare, and real estate through proposed non-citizen ownership, retail, and development of cities and sectors is expected to continue to drive the cement market in Saudi Arabia during the forecast period.
Key Cement Market Trend in Saudi Arabia
The construction of low-power-consuming cement plants is another major factor supporting the cement market in Saudi Arabia. The cement industry is one of the world's highest energy-intensive industries, with fuel and energy costs typically representing approximately 30%-40% of total production costs. With the proposed cut in energy subsidies that are expected to take place during the forecast period, cement vendors are looking for alternate ways to counter the expected increase in production costs. Major players in the cement market in Saudi Arabia, such as Yamama Cement and Saudi Cement, are investing in new infrastructure to increase production efficiency and reduce power consumption. This trend among cement companies in the region is expected to balance the anticipated increase in production costs over the long term.
Key Cement Market Challenge in Saudi Arabia
The ex-pat levy on foreign nationals will be a major challenge for the cement market in Saudi Arabia. The government of Saudi Arabia implemented an ex-pat levy on sponsoring foreign nationals. This monthly levy, which is applicable for both employees and their dependents, is expected to increase at a steady rate over a four-year period. This ex-pat levy is especially taxing on companies that have a workforce comprising more foreign nationals than Saudi nationals. In an industry heavily dependent on manpower, ex-pat levies will reduce the inflow of blue-collar workers into the country, affecting the growth of the cement market. Thus, this scenario is expected to impede the growth of the cement market in Saudi Arabia during the forecast period.
This cement market analysis report of Saudi Arabia also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

Product Insights and News
In mid-2017, Saudi Arabia lifted the ban on the export of cement. This ban was imposed in 2008 by the government to reduce the increasing prices of cement and to accommodate the demand for large government-funded projects. On the decrease of crude oil prices in late 2015, the construction industry in Saudi Arabia was adversely impacted by the low oil prices. Thus, the relaxation of the ban was to help in the recovery of the construction industry.
