Oil is an integral part of the economy of Saudi Arabia, as the country is the world’s largest producer and exporter of this valuable commodity. However, in recent decades Saudi Arabia has increasingly diversified its economy, and today it produces and exports a variety of industrial goods all over the globe. Furthermore, while Saudi Arabia battles for market share amid fluctuating oil prices, the rise of new industry segments and economic development will help define the economic significance of Saudi Arabia in the future.
