Consequently, the boom has given rise to a massive demand for construction machinery, equipment, raw materials and chemicals and has turned the Middle East into the world’s biggest market for supplies and technologies with a vast array of current and pipelined projects across industry sectors including civil, industrial, power and water. The construction boom in the Gulf region is slated to continue its road of expansion well into Year 2010 and beyond. More than $30 billion in hotel and condo projects will be built on the Strip over the next several years; Dubai is plowing as much as $50 billion into commercial projects by 2010, an unprecedented growth rate for any tourism destination in the world. Dubai plans hundreds of thousands of resort homes and tens of thousands of condos.
