About KSA Manufacturing Tech Show

The manufacturing industry is experiencing its Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), bringing about the smart and autonomous manufacturing process. Through innovative concepts like Industrial IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Advanced Robotics and more, the Industry 4.0 market is projected to reach USD $214 billion by 2023

As part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the Kingdom has set itself the ambitious goal of diversifying away from oil revenues and expanding the Kingdom’s manufacturing base to make it a regional manufacturing hub.  Already boasting the world’s fastest growing manufacturing sector, the Kingdom aims to:

  • Nearly double the value of non-oil commodity exports by 2020
  • Develop its own defense manufacturing industry
  • Develop industry growth in the areas of petrochemicals, iron and aluminium
  • Raise manufacturing exports to half of all non-oil exports by 2030

The KSA Manufacturing Technology Show, taking place on the 22 and 23 October in Riyadh, will bring together the key decision makers from Government Departments & Authorities, Manufacturers, Innovators, Technology & Solution Providers, Investors and Financiers to facilitate the Kingdom’s aspiring vision.
