Manufacturing is the second largest contributor to the country's economy, including non-oil industries, food and beverage manufacturing, plastics, rubber, machinery and electrical equipment, chemicals, and chemical products, minerals and metal products, pearls, precious stones, and minerals, all of which contribute tremendously to the UAE economy.
