The CMS collaboration considers upgrading the muon forward region which is particularly affected by the high-luminosity conditions at the LHC. The proposal involves Gas ElectronMultiplier (GEM) chambers, which are able to handle the extreme particle rates expected in this region along with a high spatial resolution. This allows to combine tracking and triggering capabilities, which will improve the CMS muon High Level Trigger, the muon identification and the track reconstruction. Intense research and development has been done since 2009 and it has lead to the development of several GEM prototypes and the associated detector electronics. All GEM prototypes have been put to extensive tests in the lab and in test beams at the CERN SPS. The contribution will review the status of the CMS upgrade project with the usage of GEM detector, discussing also the trigger performance.
