This year's Big 5 will again cover seven key product sectors: building & construction, water technology & environment, air conditioning & refrigeration, cleaning & maintenance, glass & metal, bathrooms & ceramics and marble & machinery.

Building & construction
Again the largest component of the show in terms of exhibitors and floor-space; as the GCC's construction industry continues to boom, it will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Water technology & environment
The region's fast-growing population coupled with massive construction projects means water technology is of vital importance.

Air conditioning & refrigeration
Scorching temperatures and high humidity make this sector vital for Dubai's population.

Cleaning & maintenance
Climatical extremes and abrasive atmospherics make maintenance and repairs of paramount importance.

Glass & metal
Building facades and superior finishes are driving this sector to greater heights.

Bathrooms & ceramics
Mass tourism fuelling superior hotel construction means this sector is of prime value.

Marble & machinery
Widely used for interior and exterior projects, this sector is driven by the continuing hotel and housing boom.
