Overview

This opportunity entails setting up a manufacturing/ assembly plant for mounting steel structures.

Saudi Arabia plans to significantly increase capacity of energy production from renewable sources. Today, energy generation from renewable sources is almost negligible; however, Saudi Arabia has set a renewables target of 3.45 GW by 2020 and 9.5 GW by 2023. Round one for solar PV energy of 300 MW has already been tendered and round two has been announced for 3.3 GW.

KSA solar PV mounting steel structure market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 12% from USD 20 million in 2018 to reach USD 79 million by 2030. This amounts to an estimated 2018-2030 cumulative forecast of USD 993 million. With forecasted market growth, multiple opportunities exist to localize the mounting steel structure production value chain. The main focus of this opportunity is on manufacturing and assembly of solar PV mounting steel structures.

  • Manufacturing: cutting, bending, machining, welding
  • Assembly: final assembly

Additional opportunities also exist in testing of solar PV mounting steel structures

  • Testing: dimension inspection, wind tunnel testing

The government is strongly committed to unlocking the renewable energy sector, through increasing capacity and localization requirements. Current localization requirements stand at 30%, while future localization plans are set between 40% and 60%.
