– Between 2013 and 2017, the UAEs defense expenditure grew significantly, making it one of the most sought-after markets for foreign defense OEMs. The multitude of deals signed with foreign OEMs at its biennial international defense exhibitions, proves the attractiveness of the UAEs defense market. The UAEs defense budget recorded a CAGR of 1.94% over the historic period, with expenditure driven by defense modernization programs, the protection of infrastructure, territorial disputes, and participation in peacekeeping initiatives.
– The UAE faces serious constraints with respect to a limited pool of trained manpower and still has a relatively nascent domestic defense industrial infrastructure. This forces the country to import technologically superior, high-tech defense equipment from suppliers abroad. Over the forecast period, attractive opportunities are expected to emerge in aerial platforms, missiles, naval platforms, and surveillance areas. The country is also expected to invest in reconnaissance, space, cyber security, border control, and digital warfare initiatives.
– The average capital expenditure allocation of the total UAE defense budget during the forecast period is anticipated to reach 37.8% from 35.2% in the historic period. The substantial increase in the capital expenditure percentage is a result of UAEs focus on modernizing its armed forces. During the forecasted period, the country is expected to invest in the procurement of multi-role aircraft, attack helicopters, armored vehicles, and cyber security capabilities.
