The market for unsaturated polyester resins is estimated at 80 000-85 000 tonnes/year, while vinyl ester resins account for 3500 tonnes/year. ), telecommunications, electrical and construction and infrastructure. The region has significant oil and gas reserves. Contact moulding is the major fabrication technique. Spray-up is also common and there is definite interest in extending the use of resin transfer moulding. The whole area now supports around 1300 moulders and fabricators. Resin manufacturers Cray Valley, Reichhold and Dow have already set up in the region, as have glass reinforcement suppliers Vetrotex and Owens Coming.

Most fabrication techniques are practised, including filament winding and pultrusion, and the number of companies moving away from contact-moulding and increasing their capital investment in this way, will steadily increase over the period of this study. The Middle East is characterised by three distinct regions of composites activity. In Egypt and Israel, unlike the rest of the Middle Eastern region, there is some limited, injection-moulded thermoplastic-based composites production. Israel also has pultrusion manufacture.
