Executive Summary

The deaths of 34 miners at the Marikana platinum mine northwest of Johannesburg in August 2012 during a

protest over pay highlighted the risk to South African stability posed by such socio-economic issues as

income inequality, not to mention the ability of the security services to deal proportionately with mass

unrest. For the time being, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) appears capable of keeping a lid on

these national tensions. However, this cannot be taken for granted in the long term.

Socio-economic priorities mean that the government is unlikely to deliver large funding increases to the

South African National Defence Force (SANDF). The government has already revealed defence spending

plans for the next three years which envisage some growth in the defence budget. However, these increases

are not nearly enough to enable the SANDF to meet its procurement and personnel targets, analysts are

warning.

  • Czech Republic Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 29
    BMI View: We expect the Czech Republic's defence budget to start increasing again in absolute terms in the next five years. This is in large part a result of the healthy growth the country has been experiencing since the beginning of 2015. It will be driven in the coming years by the increasing threat represented by Russia in the region, and the Czech government's desire to be able to respond to the security and defence challenges of the region in accordance with its memb......
  • Italy Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 38
    BMI View: We expect Italy's defence budget to continue to decrease in 2016, albeit at a slower rate than previous years. However, much like its neighbours, Italy is gaining awareness of the importance of developing a well-equipped and more mobile armed forces in order to tackle the international challenges that have emerged in the last decade. As such, in 2015, it published its first Defence White Paper since 1985, which highlights the importance of increasing the defence......
  • Global CBRND Market 2016-2020
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 2500 Onwards        Pages: 66
    Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) security comprises of protective and preventive measures to combat situations that involve such perilous agents. CBRN security is a growing market, owing to the concerns regarding the protection of civilian lives and maintenance of economic stability. One of the primary reasons for the continuous demand for CBRN protection, detection, and decontamination equipment is the dual use of CBRN agents in everyday life. The advancement in......
  • Venezuela Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 33
    BMI View: Venezuela's domestic defence sector remains one of the smallest in Latin America in terms of expenditure, which we project at USD5.1bn in 2019. Moreover, in terms of production, Venezuela will remain an insignificant player in the world arms market. Local defence companies are capable of manufacturing a range of equipment - including small arms and ammunitions, simple vessels and aircraft, armoured vehicles and textiles - though their ability to develop more tec......
  • Yemen Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 20-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 30
    BMI View: Yemen remains wholly reliant on defence imports to meet the requirements of its armed forces, as the country does not produce any military equipment domestically. Moreover, Yemen depends on foreign aid to fund defence procurement amid deteriorating economic conditions. Nevertheless, demand for military products remains strong in the country amid the ongoing conflict between pro-government forces and the Houthi-Saleh alliance, rising Islamist extremism and growin......
  • Jordan Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 20-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 28
    BMI View: We expect Jordan's defence budget to continue increasing both in absolute terms and as a share of GDP over the next five years. This will be driven primarily by the country's need to increase its armed forces' capabilities, in order to be able to efficiently contribute to the US-led international coalition's efforts against IS. Thus, whilst little investment will be focused on the development of the domestic defence manufacturing sector, much of the spending wil......
  • Ukraine Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 13-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: The Ukraine-Russia conflict has become somewhat frozen with skirmishes between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists flaring up every so often despite the ceasefire. Although Russia's attention has turned inwards and to de-escalation, we do not expect Ukraine to become complacent with its defence. As such, we forecast a continued uptick in defence spending throughout 2016 and over the medium term. We see President Poroshenko continuing to reform and inves......
