REVEALED: Top 10 Companies in UAE In 2014

The biggest listed businesses in the Emirates valued by market capitalisation.

In the UAE, according to IIF estimates, tourism, transportation, and trade will boost non-hydrocarbon growth to 5.2 per cent in 2014, but real GDP growth will be moderate in the coming years due to declining contribution of the hydrocarbon sector.

Aggregate corporate earning in the UAE came in at $8 billion in H1 2014, implying a YoY growth of 16 per cent. Value traded in the first half of the year was close to four times the value for the equivalent period last year, due to the upgrade to the MSCI Emerging Market index and the stellar performance of banks and real estate.

But the heady optimism may be waning, as valuations no longer appear attractive. The Arabtec fiasco in June has also raised serious questions about corporate governance and the role of regulators in ensuring a fair, efficient and transparent market.

Going ahead, preparations for the Expo 2020 and investments in infrastructure and real estate should ensure continued growth in the Emirates.
