The Middle East is at the very beginning of the automation era. Both the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have unveiled their “Vision 2030”, which aims to promote the development of non-oil industries targeting aerospace, aluminum and fabricated metals, maritime, consumer products, pharmaceuticals & medical equipment and machinery & equipment.
UAE and Saudi Arabia are the main users of automation technology in the GCC region. However, market awareness is higher in the UAE, where around 20 big players are based. Dubai is the regional innovation hub and the “Silicon Valley” of the Middle East. It also provides access to other hard-to-reach markets in the Middle East and Africa thanks to its state-of-the-art infrastructures.
