The Post-Oil Landscape: Opportunities for Economic Transformation and Growth


Oil price volatilities and geopolitical shocks have spurred economic diversification strategies within fossil-fuel-dependent GCC economies. Government policy efforts are a testament to the need to diversify economies and reorient supply chains to insulate and achieve economic resilience and drive new avenues of growth. These efforts, coupled with the building of local capabilities, will spark remarkable growth in non-oil sectors.

Simultaneously, the region is experiencing a wave of disruptive technologies. Government long-term vision plans are propelling digital transformation objectives, leading to substantial investments in on-ground information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and a surge in internet penetration. This digitalization wave will unleash the potential of sectors such as agritech, healthtech, edtech, and fintech.

The tectonic shifts in the economic model within these economies are also seen to be accompanied by transformative megatrends. Green energy adoption, growth of high-value-added manufacturing and services, and private sector investments will gain traction. These megatrends will provide fertile ground for businesses to flourish, offering promising growth opportunities.
