Dubai’s economy went through several years of expansive growth in the years following the turn of the millennium, with much of this driven by an active and rapidly expanding construction sector. Indeed, such was the pace and scale of activities at the time that a popular claim had it that the emirate was home to around 20% of the world’s cranes at the height of the boom in 2006. Even though growth levels are not what they once were, Dubai’s construction industry continues to play a significant role in its economy, and the emirate has become a global leader in terms of the value of its ongoing projects.
