BMI View: Infrastructure development in Germany continues to face structural problems stemming from
eurozone realignment. Over the 10-year forecast period low growth is expected to prevail, with annual
average growth of 0.84% year-on-year (y-o-y) anticipated between 2012 and 2021. The value of the
construction industry will reach US$160.2bn by the end of this period, compared to a forecast of
US$132.4bn for 2012, with y-o-y growth of just 1.35%.
Key developments include:
? Germany-based renewable energy developer Juwi concluded the installation of a 20MW
photovoltaic plant. The project, based at a former uranium mining site in the state of Thuringia,
would provide clean power to approximately 5,600 households. The nuclear age is now a thing
of the past and the future belongs to renewable energy, Thuringia’s Minister for Trade and
Industry Matthias Machnig said. The decentralised expansion of renewable energy provides
great economic potential and enhances the local value chain.
? The opening of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport was delayed until October 27 2013. This
represents a two-year delay from the originally scheduled date. The EUR4.2bn (US$5.38bn)
project will also cost EUR1.2bn (US$1.55bn) more than initially estimated. German airline Air
Berlin intends to use the new airport as an international hub. It will have an initial annual
handling capacity of 27mn passengers.
? Dutch grid operator TenneT was expected to conclude the sale of its two German projects to
link offshore wind farms with the onshore network by end-2012. The operator is holding talks
with potential investors regarding future projects. TenneT is required to raise funds to construct
new power links as the country now relies more on renewable energy for generating power. The
grid operator expects to sign a deal for the sale of minority stakes in the SylWyn1 and DolWyn1
cables in Q412.
The political challenges facing Germany over the coming decade are not so much centred around public
policy as trying to foster economic growth in east Germany, managing population decline and dealing
with the potential implications of further EU integration. Overall, the political risk profile in Germany
remains among the best in the world.
On-going retrenchment in demand among euro-area economies and the prospect of a collapse in fixed
investment flows in the event of a eurozone ‘exit’ by a member state threaten the economic outlook.
Although a breakup of the single currency bloc is not our core view, we note that in the absence of a
decisive resolution to the crisis over the next 12-18 months, investment levels are set to suffer
substantially and both consumer and business confidence are likely to remain subdued, hitting domestic
demand. We therefore predict a 2012 real GDP growth forecast for Germany below the latest consensus
projections.

    Published: 20-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: We forecast Libyan defence expenditure to expand over the next five years; although growth is starting from a low base, and as such, the overall size of the defence budget remains small on a global comparison. While continued political instability and rising Islamist militancy will create demand for military equipment across the ground, air and naval segments, major purchases will be delayed over the medium term due to severe financial constraints, the ongoing restructuring of the Liby......
  • Pakistan Defence and Security Report 2015
    Published: 20-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: Pakistan's local defence industry remains underdeveloped due to a lack of investment into R&D, and as such, domestic companies rely heavily on assistance from foreign firms to manufacture sophisticated military equipment. The majority of the armed forces' more high-tech requirements are therefore predominantly met through imports. However, collaborations between foreign (mainly Chinese) firms and Pakistani entities have resulted in the development of units with significant export poten......

    BMI View: Romania historically has under-spent on its defence requirements. The country has a wellestablished defence industry, and significantly faces regional security concerns which will encourage future defence spending trends. At the industrial level, its companies are working to establish relationships and to deepen cooperation regarding defence design, development and production. Meanwhile, the country's defence relationship with the United States is expanding. This is the result of the c......

    BMI View: Russia is engaged in a major military modernisation initiative. The country is investing heavily in its armed forces after several years of stagnation in the defence sector following the end of the Cold War. At the same time, the country is facing a number of security threats in the domestic, regional and international domains; a second factor which is also spurring the upsurge in defence spending. In addition, the country's defence manufacturers are enjoying increased demand for their......
  • Australia Defence and Security Report 2015
    Published: 20-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: We expect Australia's defence budget to continue increasing in absolute terms in the next five years. This will be driven by Australia's defence policy focused on becoming a key player in regional and international security, which will require an upgrading of both its navy and air force capacities. The government is looking to take advantage of the globalisation of the defence market to continue importing defence materiel whilst, simultaneously, facilitating Australian defence SMEs' ac......
  • Taiwan Defence and Security Report 2015
    Published: 20-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: We expect Taiwan's defence budget to remain stable at 2.2% of the GDP in the next five years as a result of financial constraints brought on by an economic downturn following the world's economic crisis. However, we note that the defence budget will continue to increase, albeit very slowly, in absolute terms, especially as cross-Strait tensions continue to increase following the pro-independence party's win during last November's local elections. Our view is that this is likely to open......

    BMI View: The Brazilian defence sector is set to continue to be one of the most active and open for foreign players, both with regards to imported goods from more established countries, and its relatively unfettered export market.

    BMI View: The UAE's local defence industry is still in the early stages of development, and as such, domestic companies rely heavily on assistance from foreign firms to manufacture sophisticated military equipment. The armed forces' requirements for high-tech naval, air power, missile and surveillance products are therefore predominantly met through imports. However, the government - as part of its economic diversification strategy - is working to expand the local defence industrial base, and is......
