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.

    BMI View: There was a large increase in military spending in 2016, up 13.8% from 2015, thanks to more positive economic outlook and a rebounding peso. The predicted spending in 2017 will reach an increase of 14% over 2016, a reflection of the militarization of the anti-cartel campaign. Latest Updates ? The Mexican government has continued to extradite several top drug cartel high ranking individuals to the US, showing a cordial relation between the two states and al......
  • Serbia Defence and Security Report 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 46
    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......

    Published: 21-Nov-2016        Price: US 2500 Onwards        Pages: 64
    A bulletproof vest, also known as a bullet-resistant vest or ballistic vest is a type of personal protective equipment. It is used by the military, law enforcement personals, and many times by civilians as a protective cover against bullets and shrapnel from explosions. Soft bulletproof vests weigh less and provide protection against small-caliber handguns. Hard bulletproof vests are used in combat, high-risk tactical missions, and hostage rescue missions. This analyst forecast the gl......

  • Greece Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    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......
  • Bulgaria Defence and Security Report 2016
    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.
