Saudi Arabia is expected to dominate the Middle Eastern aviation market
The Middle East’s aviation market, estimated at $64.31 billion in 2024, is on course to reach $74.15 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 2.89% during the forecast period. This growth is underpinned by the increasing demand for business jets as well as domestic travel due to the country’s focus on tourism and the development of domestic airports.

Saudi Arabia, which currently enjoys the biggest market share, is expected to dominate the Middle Eastern aviation market in the next six years. With its ambitious Vision 2030, the Kingdom is looking to improve its aviation sector’s contribution to economic growth with incentives like the privatization of airports and massive investments in fleet expansion and airport infrastructure.

ADB SAFEGATE’s commitment to Saudi Arabia’s aviation industry

ADB SAFEGATE’s commitment to Saudi Arabia’s aviation industry is evident through its involvement in a plethora of massive projects—the company’s systems are a critical component of the operational database and IT infrastructure of Riyadh International Airport and provide airfield visual guidance systems for the Red Sea Airport.

In the article published om Astro Labs, Ammar Momani explains that following the changes in the Kingdom and the new economic modernization initiatives, we decided to build our presence close to our customers to provide better support and technical services. The decision to expand to Saudi Arabia was facilitated by AstroLabs’ on-ground team, which provided invaluable insights into the local market’s regulatory and operational frameworks.

Partnering with AstroLabs helped us focus on our core business, significantly enhancing the overall value of our company. The AstroLabs team proved to be well acquainted with the processes and regulations in Saudi Arabia, and that was key for the ADB SAFEGATE process while opening a fully owned office in KSA, Ammar reflected.

By providing innovative and emerging technology to the airports, the aviation company sets a new benchmark for airport operations in the region, improving operational efficiencies and passenger experiences. Moreover, their work on the Red Sea Airport, a key aspect of Saudi Arabia’s giga project, Red Sea Development, highlights the company’s impactful contribution to the construction upsurge currently taking place across the Kingdom in areas such as airports and further affirms commitment to the country’s tourism sector.

Looking into the future, the aviation player remains committed to contributing to the Saudi aviation industry’s growth. ADB SAFEGATE specializes in airport systems and equipment, crucial for Saudi Arabia’s thriving aviation industry, which is forecasted to double in size over the next 10 years.
