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.

  • Spain Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 11-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 37
    BMI View: We expect the Spanish defence budget to grow in line with gradually improving economic conditions in coming years. However, we note that funding available for new procurement remains restricted, as the defence ministry's debt on existing military programmes is substantial. This will also limit state investment into sector R&D - a challenge for Spanish defence manufacturers, as they face stiff competition from world-class Western European suppliers. That said, Sp......
  • Australia Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 38
    BMI View: The Australian government plans large increases in defence spending over the next decade, in order to modernise the ADF - in particular the navy - amid rising threats linked to East and South China Seas territorial disputes, regional military build-ups, terrorism and cybercrime. Large-scale procurement programmes will be carried out over our forecast period to 2025 - most of which will be covered by foreign defence companies, due to Australia's still-limited mil......
  • Canada Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 37
    BMI View: Canadian defence spending will be modest in 2016 but an improvement on the four consecutive years of negative growth the country has experienced since 2012. However, amid the government's ongoing fiscal consolidation program and budgetary limitations - not to mention the country's stable security landscape - we note that this forecast is likely to be revised downward. Indeed, despite the armed forces' requirements to replace ageing systems and renewed commitment......

    BMI View: Germany will increase defence spending over the coming years, in order to move ahead with Bundeswehr reform and expansion plans, amid regional tensions over the Ukraine conflict and migrant crisis, growing threats from terrorism, and in response to NATO military requirements. The government's planned budget increase will be facilitated by steady economic growth, and a healthy fiscal position. In the short- to medium-term, the MoD will focus on strengthening the ......

  • Pakistan Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 50
    BMI View: The state-dominated Pakistani defence industry still lacks advanced design and development capabilities in most segments, which means that the country remains heavily reliant on foreign partners to meet its armed forces' requirements. However, joint ventures with China have allowed local manufacturers to benefit from technology transfer in recent years, and tanks, combat aircraft and armed UAVs are now produced in-country. As a result, Pakistani defence exports ......
