Ras Al Khaimah has a natural advantage when it comes to the production of cement as the Al Hajar mountain range holds vast supplies of high quality limestone, which is a key raw material for cement manufacturing. The emirate is also rich in other raw materials such as clay, quartz and other minerals.

The pharmaceutical industry in RAK is about 30 years old and has been one of the key focus areas of government plans since several years. The industry in RAK is dominated by the Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries, known as Julphar. The company has grown into a pharmaceuticals giant by Middle East standards and now exports to over 80 countries. Julphar is the biggest pharmaceuticals manufacturer in the UAE.

What RAK lacks in oil is somewhat compensated for by its natural mineral water resources. RAK is the origin of Masafi mineral water brand, the region's leading mineral water brand, with its source lying in several rich underground springs in the mountainous city of Masafi. Masafi water has developed into an international brand which exports bottled water and fruit juices to more than 20 countries.

RAK Ceramics is the single largest, state-of-the-art, ceramic tile manufacturer in the world with its 12 plants spread across the UAE, India, Bangladesh, Sudan, Iran and China, producing over one hundred million square meter of tiles and 3 million pieces of sanitary-ware annually, exporting to 135 countries. The UAE operation is the largest single location ceramic manufacturing facility in the world with more than 6,000 active models in the ceramic and porcelain tiles segment, and an exclusive range of more than 600 active models of sanitary ware to offer with a wide choice in designer bathroom sets, wash basins, bathtubs and related items. RAK Ceramics has diversified horizontally by forming several joint ventures including Kludi RAK LLC, RAK Porcelain LLC, Laticrete RAK LLC and many more in Ras Al Khaimah.
