Iraq Defence and Security Report 2016

BMI View: Iraqi defence expenditure will increase substantially over our forecast period, amid Baghdad's

efforts to counter terrorism, reduce elevated levels of violence and unrest, and regain control of borders

and airspace. The country's armed forces are in need of a range of equipment - particularly in the ground

and aerospace segments; however, operational expenses will continue to take up a large share of the

overall defence budget, limiting funds available for new procurement. Nevertheless, Baghdad will likely be

able to purchase urgently needed equipment with military aid or flexible payment arrangements offered by

its strategic allies. Iraq remains wholly reliant on foreign suppliers to meet its armed forces' requirements

given the complete lack of a domestic defence industry - a situation which we do not expect to change over

the next decade.

Latest Updates

- In August 2016, the US Department of Defense (DoD) approved the delivery of an undisclosed number

of Boeing ScanEagle UAS to Iraq under a USD8.3mn contract.

- In the same month, the Iraqi air force (IqAF) took delivery of another Beechcraft King Air 350 extended

range (ER) aircraft modified with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capability. As the

DoD has previously issued a notification of a 24 King Air 350ER aircraft requirement from Iraq, more

deliveries are likely to follow over coming quarters.

- In April 2016, IqAF reportedly received another three Sukhoi Su-25 ground attack aircraft from Russia.

- Also in April 2016, the US DoD announced it would deliver 60 Textron Commando Select armoured

vehicles to Iraq under a USD66mn contract.

    BMI View: Serbian defence spending will remain modest in 2017, amid the government's ongoing fiscal consolidation programme. Despite the armed forces' requirements to replace much of its ageing equipment - particularly in the aerospace segment - new procurement will therefore be limited. Beyond 2017, military expenditure will increase gradually as economic conditions improve, reflecting persistent security risks stemming from unresolved disputes with neighbouring countrie......

    BMI View: Defence expenditure by Greece will remain constrained by adverse economic conditions over the next several years. While dramatic cuts to overall military spending levels are unlikely amid persistent security challenges, any growth will be highly limited, and most new procurement plans will be put on hold given large operational and personnel expenses. Defence import levels will be low on a historical comparison, while exports are set to grow, as local manufactur......

    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: Bulgarian defence spending will see modest growth in the years ahead, driven by persistent domestic security threats, regional tensions and Sofia's efforts to bring its military closer to NATO standards - but weakened by relatively slow real GDP expansion. While government support for local defence sector expansion appears to be strengthening, we do not expect a dramatic reduction in the country's defence import reliance over our forecast period to 2025.
