The power sector in the GCC region has seen exponential growth ranging from 10 to 15 percent annually in many of its member states, with demand for electrical power to triple over the next 25 years. Similarly, the water industry is expected to be worth $70bn over the next ten years. Such developments in the power and water sectors of the GCC countries underline the fact that the region is not only one of the fastest growing but also holds the most potential of global electricity and water markets.
