REVEALED: Top 10 Companies In Kuwait In 2014

The biggest listed businesses in Kuwait valued by market capitalisation.

The IMF estimates the real GDP of Kuwait to rebound to 2.6 per cent in 2014 and 3.0 per cent in 2015 after a slowdown in 2013. In the near term, hydrocarbon sector growth is expected to be flat due to a rise in oil supply globally, on account of easing of sanctions imposed earlier on Iran, and continued growth in supply from the US.

The non-oil sector is expected to drive growth in Kuwait. The recently announced second five-year development will continue to focus on infrastructure. Kuwait also enacted new legislation to ease impediments and attract foreign direct investment.

The ensuing political stability in Kuwait has renewed expectations on implementing the much needed structural reforms to revive the investment cycle. The materialisation of Kuwait’s development plan by way of tendering project contracts and execution is expected.

In terms of value traded, Kuwait posted a 40 per cent increase in 2013, from 2012 value of $26 billion, but fell 57 per cent in H1 2014 ($11 billion) over H1 2013.
