The Middle East’s population in 2024 is estimated to be approximately almost 500 million, with a growth rate between 1 and 2% per year. This region, extending from Western Asia into Egypt, comprises 17 countries and is known for its religious diversity, including the origins of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

The most important economies in the Middle East include Saudi Arabia, which relies heavily on oil exports, and the United Arab Emirates, known for its robust trade and finance sectors. Iran and Iraq also have significant oil reserves impacting their economic status. Turkey’s diverse economy spans textiles, agriculture, and industry, while Israel is known for its technology and innovation. Egypt’s economy is diverse, with agriculture, media, petroleum imports, and tourism playing key roles. These economies vary widely, from oil-dependent to more diversified economic structures.

Western companies have several business opportunities in the Middle East, including renewable energy projects, especially solar and wind power, due to the region’s climate. The technology sector, including fintech, e-commerce, and cybersecurity, offers growth potential driven by digital transformation.
