ALUMINIUM MIDDLE EAST 2017 is the ideal platform for global industry manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and project builders to present themselves to an increasingly dynamic market in the region.



  • The Middle East posted the second highest year-on-year demand growth globally during the first quarter of 2016 at +5.8% and the sector is expected to thrive in a post-oil world, with aluminium as one of the major economy drivers.
  • Regional governments across the GCC are diversifying their economies to reduce dependability on energy revenues. In the UAE alone, authorities aim to further develop the manufacturing sector and increase its GDP contribution up to 25% by 2025 – more than double the current figure of 11 per cent. 
  • GCC aluminium production constitutes 10 per cent of the total world production and is considered one of the key economic drivers for the Gulf region. Forty per cent of the total output is utilised by the downstream aluminium industries in the Gulf and 60 per cent exported to different parts of the world. According to reports, GCC remains one of the leading regions for aluminium production with higher environmental standards compared to the rest of the world.
