With an expected surge in trade value and container traffic over the next few years and increases in both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon exports, it is essential that Qatar continues to invest in port developments. Qatar has 4 main ports: Doha Port, RasLaffan, Masaieed and Al Ruwais. While there are no free trade zones in Qatar adjacent to ports, there are industrial cities such as RasLaffan Industrial City and Masaieed Industrial City. Further investments in Qatar ports would help attract more FDI and decrease the country’s dependency on oil and gas exports. 

In this report, we have listed the current and future projects in the Seaport Sector, both in the GCC and Qatar Ports. The report provides a brief on the major Qatar ports, the expansion projects currently underway and the analysis of port volume and trade in the country.
