Thence, over the next few years demography, economic growth and urbanization will support the development of the housing market (total housing stock expected to reach 7 million units by 2020). The construction industry is one of centre pieces of the country’s economic development. Expectations will affect investments for about 294 billion dollars by 2018, of which 63% in infrastructural work, 22% in residential buildings and 15% in non-residential buildings. As for heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems for the Gulf market forecast predicts a slight increase: from 1 billion US dollars in 2011 to 1,4 billion in 2015 for the whole area. Saudi Arabia, due to its climatic conditions, population and revenue represents the leading market at over 50%.
