Summary of Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing, which includes techniques like – 3D printing, robotics and artificial intelligence – is seeing increased adoption across the Middle East. Countries in the region are investing heavily in developing advanced manufacturing capabilities in fields like – aerospace, automotive, electronics and defense.

Based on our estimates, we can say that the Saudi Arabia’s advanced manufacturing industry is forecasted to be a $6.09 billion industry in 2029 from $3.84 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 8 %.

Saudi Arabia has made developing an advanced manufacturing industry a key part of its Vision 2030 economic diversification plans. The country is focused on localizing defense, automotive, and machinery production. The Saudi government has established special economic zones and innovation centers to attract foreign direct investment in advanced manufacturing.

Saudi Arabia has made developing an advanced manufacturing industry a strategic priority under its Vision 2030 economic reform agenda. Specific goals under Vision 2030 include increasing the manufacturing sector’s contribution to GDP from 10% to 14%, boosting exports of non-oil goods and services from 16% to 50% of non-oil GDP and increasing foreign direct investment inflows.

To achieve these aims— Saudi Arabia is focused on localizing production in priority sectors like defense, automotive, machinery/equipment and other transport vehicles. For defense, a key priority is domestic production of ammunition, drones, armored vehicles and other military equipment. In automotive – Saudi aims to produce over half of demand locally across segments from cars to buses to trucks.

Recent Trends and Insights

The Saudi mining industry is growing in a steadfast manner leading to give 1300 new licenses and that has gained around $32.4 Billion in investments. These were in the mining and minerals sector through nine new projects. This is according to recent data from the Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources.

The Saudi government has established special economic zones and innovation centers to attract foreign investment and technology transfer in advanced manufacturing. This actually helps to provide more context on Saudi Arabia’s advanced manufacturing initiatives under Vision 2030.
