This paper uses multiple discriminant analysis to test for similarity in patterns of industrial development in the Middle East. The study divides the Arab world into three groups: oil economies, middle-income countries and low-income countries. It was found that factors such as absorption/gross domestic product, imports/absorption, domestic linkages and size have been instrumental in moulding the industrial structures of the region.
