Lucintel's research on Saudi Arabia provides a wide array of analytical inputs on the country's performance and briefly describes the political, social, economic, and business risks associated with the kingdom. Saudi Arabia's economy, which has demonstrated good growth in recent years, is expected to reach US $754.7 billion by 2017.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on different aspects of the country and presents its findings in “Saudi Arabia Country Analysis 2012-2017: An Evaluation of Political, Social, Economic, and Business Risk.” The report provides a holistic view of the country’s economic climate from current and future perspectives.

Lucintel analyzes the various challenges faced by Saudi Arabia, which is witnessing a risk of increasing unemployment and income disparities as well as low R&D spending. Future political transitions are likely to be troublesome. This poses a threat to the stability of Saudi Arabia because the long-occupied ministerial positions of the princes and their patronage networks filter down throughout society. Although there are huge opportunities for doing business in the country, not every company is able to profit from them.
