The energy sector in the GCC requires modernization and constant maintenance. All Gulf countries are now developing their solar energy businesses and spend billions of dollars on projects, equipment and technologies with the perspective to grow due to the natural resources of a sunny climate.
There are needs for greater water production and distribution technologies, wastewater, clean technologies and processing. Desalination is the main source of water for individual usage, communities, and industries. The strategic network of water transport systems in Saudi Arabia is made up of only 8,000 km (with an additional 3,500 km in the planning stage). This will require an expected investment of 15 billion dollars. The region needs to learn how to use the technologies to develop wastewater management.
Saudi companies outsource construction, modernization and maintenance of installations in the petrochemical and refinery sectors— worth billions of dollars.
The need for food is growing in the GCC countries. Fifty million citizens and expats look for fresh and processed top quality grocery products. Imports are promising, but in the short term, a better solution is to offer cooperation with agriculture technologies.
The GCC countries desire greater know-how about specific food production and processing, packaging, and logistics of fresh products for long distances. Their companies are seeking the technologies that can be used in domestic production, e.g., hydroponic, vertical gardens.
