Industrial Clusters

Welcome to the Industrial Clusters program website. The Industrial Clusters program, established in 2008 as a government agency, is leading the development of five fast-growing, export-oriented industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia:

  • Automotive
  • Minerals and Metal Processing
  • Desalination & Energy Spare Parts Industries
  • Plastics and Packaging
  • Pharma & Biotech

These carefully chosen industries share two main characteristics: firstly, they all use and can make the most of Saudi Arabia's abundant natural resources, raw materials and energy; and secondly, they all have huge potential. Many investors already know about Saudi Arabia's potential: in 2010 Saudi Arabia attracted inward investment of $32 billion, more than any other country in Middle East-North Africa (MENA). However, Saudi Arabia’s vision 2030 has been approved recently by the government. This vision is based on 2 strong pillars given the fact that our country is situated in the heart of the Islamic world. The first pillar of our vision is our determination to become a global investment powerhouse.

Our nation holds strong investment capabilities, which we will harness to stimulate our economy and diversify our revenues. The second pillar is transforming our unique strategic location into a global hub connecting three continents; Asia, Europe and Africa. Our geographic position among key global waterways, makes the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia an epicenter of trade and the gateway to the world.
By locating your manufacturing operations in Saudi Arabia, we believe you will benefit from excellent financial returns and increased market share in the Arabian Gulf, MENA and Africa. Our role is to support you in making your industrial investment in Saudi Arabia a reality. To do this, we have a team of experts in the industries we are developing, and extensive knowledge of local conditions. It's the right time to invest in Saudi Arabia's new industrial clusters.
