GCC Artificial Turf Market – Overview
Artificial turf is a large-scale synthetic grass-like strand. The fibers are often attached to a backing material composed of nylon, polypropylene, or polyethylene. Sports stadiums, private lawns, and commercial spaces where grass was once used now deploy artificial turf as it can be maintained easily without watering or pruning. Artificial grass is often constructed of PE or PP material, both of which are waterproof and capable of withstanding prolonged submersion without suffering harm.

Impact of COVID-19 on GCC Artificial Turf Market
The COVID-19 pandemic halted the growth of the GCC artificial turf market. The imposition of lockdown in GCC countries, including Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, led to complete restrictions on construction activities to prevent the spread of the virus, directly impeding the demand for the artificial turfs. The decline in the need for sports complexes and commercial spaces post-COVID-19 pandemic due to shift to remote working culture also negatively impacted the market growth. Furthermore, the shortage of labor during the pandemic period limited market growth, as the installation of artificial turf is a labor-intensive activity.
