Dubai: Stone Supply

Dubai is the country in the Middle East with most ongoing and planned construction projects. And it is perhaps the country in the world with more projects per square kilometer. But which natural stones are mostly used in this particular market?

This small but very wealthy country has a booming construction industry, with all types of projects going on. Several reference projects such as the Burj Khalifa (tallest building in the world), the island of Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Waterfront, Dubai Marina, just to mention few.

It is clear then that there is a considerable market for natural stones, pretty much for all types. Natural stones are being used in DubaiĀ“s projects, in applications such as luxurious hotels flooring, coverings and interior decoration, villas cladding and interior decoration, palaces and commercial buildings, and much more.

The aim of this article is to present our readers a list of highly demanded natural stones in Dubai. This list is based on the findings of statistics, trends and customers feedback from our portal Globalstoneportal.com, which has seen an increase in demand from places like Dubai. These highly demanded natural stones are:

 

Capri Limestone

White coloured limestone from Spain, with fine to medium grain and fairly uniform background. This is a major white limestone, with large demand for cladding projects.

Travertine Beige

Its colour reminds of the colour of the sandy deserts, and this is the reason why it is such a popular stone in Dubai. There is big demand for Travertine Beige for villa cladding, but also for specific projects such as mosques or museums.

White Marble

There has been considerable demand for white coloured marble in Dubai, with no particular focus. We know that Italian marble such as Carrara or Statuario have considerable demand, but there is also demand for Estremoz from Portugal or even Turkish white marble.
