Key Market Issues

  • Brunei's defense budget is small compared to large defense spenders and even its neighboring countries. With US$0.5 billion set aside for its 2013 defense budget and projected figures of US$0.6 billion for 2018, the country will find it hard to convince investors and suppliers to treat Brunei as a preferred destination for investment. Moreover, the moderate security threat to the nation and a relatively small population do not warrant large capital or revenue defense expenditure. Consequently, the purchase of military equipment and hi-tech arms and ammunition gets affected.]

  • [Brunei's foreign investment policies are unclear, in particular, the limits on foreign equity participation and the sectors in which investment is restricted. In addition, military procurement is a closed process with no clear cut criteria to be met in order to secure an order. This creates uncertainty among investors and poses a serious challenge to foreign direct investment in the sector.]

  • [The Brunei defense industry is mainly managed by RBTS which is a semi-government-owned firm and the participation from other domestic private companies is negligible. Therefore, the majority of its military equipment is purchased through import channels. Due to the lack of manufacturing capabilities, the nation has no export contracts. Furthermore, the country is still in its nascent stage and is expected to explore better procurement opportunities and to prioritize other major areas in order to enhance the country's defense capabilities.


Key Highlights

  • The country hosts the Brunei International Defense Exhibition (BRIDEX) biennially. Beginning in 2007, the event provided a platform for global defense equipment manufacturers to showcase their products and strengthen their defense capabilities. In the 2011 event, 166 companies representing 31 countries participated. Exhibitors included Bell Helicopter, BAE Systems, EADS, General Dynamics, Harris Corporation, Northrop Gruman, Raytheon Company, SAAB AB and others. The next BRIDEX event is scheduled to take place on 3-7 December 2013. With the country embarking on a defense modernization plan, foreign OEMs have an opportunity to enter Brunei's defense market. Supply opportunities include airborne coastal surveillance, early warning radars for the air force, support helicopters, infantry fighting vehicles, larger patrol vessels for maritime security, and a ground based air defense system.

  • As a consequence of low levels of defense expenditure in the past and demand to modernize its armed forces, Brunei has procured arms directly from foreign suppliers. For instance, in January 2010, Northrop Grumman Corporation was awarded a contract to provide a joint operations center command and control capability, in February 2011 CAE won a contract to develop a state-of-the-art national modeling and simulation center. Additionally, in May 2013, Harris Corp was awarded a US$40 million contract to supply its Falcon III family of tactical communication systems to the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.

  • [Brunei's arms imports are dominated by Germany mainly due to the purchase of four Corvette and three offshore patrol vessels by the Brunei Naval forces in 2010 and 2011 respectively. During 2008-2012, 81.7% of the country's arms imports were from Germany, 6.4% from France, 4.5% each from Denmark and the Netherlands, and 2.9% from Sweden. Additionally, Brunei imported military trucks from Malaysia and rocket launchers from Singapore during the review period. Brunei is now looking to forge defense procurement deals with other countries such as the US, China, Ukraine and Indonesia. The country has also shown interest in purchasing air defense systems and naval equipment from Russia.
