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

  • Syria Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 27-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 32
    BMI View: We forecast Syrian defence expenditure to expand only modestly over the next five years, given that the Syrian economy - and government revenues - have collapsed due to the civil war. As the country does not maintain a significant domestic defence industry (and investment into the development of local military manufacturing capabilities is unlikely to be forthcoming amid the ongoing war), we expect the government to remain wholly reliant on foreign allies for de......
  • Saudi Arabia Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: Reduced government revenues amid lower oil prices will negatively impact Saudi military spending growth in the short term. However, facilitated by high oil production and a strong fiscal position, the kingdom's defence budget will see robust long-term expansion driven by Riyadh's rivalry with Tehran, risks of spillover from instability in neighbouring states and rising threats from Islamist militancy, sectarian violence and social unrest. Efforts to secure land ......

    Published: 13-Jul-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: Although Thailand's domestic landscape remains wrought by fragility, owing primarily to the political weight that the military holds and domestic security concerns, the defence market will continue to be one of the fastest growing in the world. The local defence industry will remain underdeveloped and, as such, the country will rely on international exporters to satisfy the majority of its defence requirements. Cooling relations with the US in light of the 2014 ......

  • Sudan Defence and Security Report 2016
    Published: 29-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI View: Sudan is the third largest arms manufacturer in Africa, capable of producing a range of (primarily ground-based) military products. That said, the local defence industrial base remains underdeveloped, and research and development activities are limited. As such, the country will continue to rely on imports for the procurement of more technologically advanced equipment over our forecast period to 2025. The persistent risk of war with South Sudan, as well as threa......

  • Global Security Screening Systems Market 2016-2020
    Published: 28-Jun-2016        Price: US 2500 Onwards        Pages: 56
    Prior to the deployment of security screening systems in the 1990s, major end-users had employed handheld detectors and the physical checking of people, which required staff with proper training and skills. This led to more waiting time in queues, especially in airports, metro stations, and bus stations. Also, the traditional screening process had flaws due to human errors. Such errors are likely to cause risks such as terrorist attacks and illegal activities, leading to unrest in nations. Th......

    BMI View: North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles represents a persistent, increasingly belligerent and direct threat to South Korea. In the face of this, South Korea will continue to invest considerably into strengthening its defence posture - namely its counter strike, reconnaissance and intelligence capabilities - providing opportunities for multinational defence companies. Although the domestic sector lacks the ability to satisfy the more advan......

    BMI View: South Africa's defence budget will remain limited in the medium term, amid difficult economic conditions and as the government focuses spending on much-needed service delivery improvements rather than military development. Over the longer term, as the economy improves, defence spending will register gradual growth amid rising regional terrorist threats and domestic risks linked to crime and social unrest, necessitating investment into maintaining and improving t......
