Construction Industries

The construction industry plays a significant role in Abu Dhabi's economy, where the Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy aims to attract more investment to the construction sector and improve infrastructure and utilities to support the growth of the industry. 

The electrical equipment industry comprises a range of activities including manufacturing activities(1)  related to a single substance of mineral origin. This sector includes the manufacture of glass and glass products (e.g., flat glass, hollow glass, fibers, technical glassware, etc.), ceramic products, tiles and baked clay products, and cement and plaster, from raw materials to finished articles (lime, gypsum, ready-made concrete, blocks, etc.) The manufacture of shaped and finished stone and other mineral products is also included in this sector.
