Key Trends in the Market

Labour refers to a workforce which capable of performing various tasks requiring physical endurance, mental work, or administrative skills. In other words, it is an economic productivity of a person which can either be done by hand or brain. The skills and tasks of labour can vary, depending upon the nature of work.     

 

  • The GCC labour market is being driven by the rising demand for labour to stimulate the economic development of the region. Labour demand across the emerging economies such as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, among others, is also witnessing a rise to bolster enterprise income, productivity, and jobs.
  • The favourable labour laws for both domestic and foreign workers, such as tax relief, better access to health, paid leaves, prevention of discrimination, etc., are playing a pivotal role in the GCC labour market. Favourable labour laws are also encouraging workers from other countries to opt for work in the GCC region.
  • The changing socio-economic and geopolitical scenario is leading to a greater emphasis on industrial automation and upgradation of services which is generating a high demand for skilled labour. Meanwhile, the increasing number of refugees in GCC countries from politically unstable countries, is expected to increase the supply of unskilled labours, which can be beneficial for short-term development programs.
  • The rapid industrialisation and commercialisation are further bolstering the demand for labour across industries such as food service, oil and gas, manufacturing, healthcare, and hospitality, among others. The growing expansion of residential construction sector, owing to the rising disposable income, rapid urbanisation, and increasing foreign immigration, is also anticipated to provide impetus to the GCC labour market in the forecast period.
