Key Market Issues Lack of investment opportunities deters the market entry of foreign companies

The lack of industrial opportunities leaves very limited opportunities for the foreign companies and deters them from entering the market. Furthermore, defense contractors often favor direct offsets, as opposed to indirect offsets that are mandated by the country, as they are normally more experienced in, and better equipped to, enter those types of arrangements.

Political underpinnings, bribery, corruption and political affiliations hampers the growth of the Saudi Arabian defense industryBribery and corruption have been prevalent in Saudi defense procurement for many years, largely due to the monopolistic status exercised by the government over the purchase decisions of its armed forces.

3Defense industry still out of reach of FDI

The Saudi Arabian defense sector remains closed to FDI, which limits further growth opportunities. Moreover, in April 2009, the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), a body with the sole responsibility of approving foreign investment projects, included the defense sector in its list of sectors still barred to FDI.

Key Highlights Saudi Arabia's defense expenditure expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period

The Saudi Arabian defense industry valued US$50.5 billion in 2012 and is one of the largest defense markets globally. During the review period, the country's defense expenditure grew at a CAGR of 7.2%, and is expected to record a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period, to value US$65.9 billion by 2017.

Per capita defense expenditure expected to increase over the forecast periodAlthough the population is forecast to increase between 2013 and 2017, defense expenditure growth is expected to surpass population growth, resulting in an increase per capita in defense expenditure, from an average of US$1615 in the review period. to US$1938 in the forecast period.

Procurement and modernization of fighter aircraft to provide excellent market opportunities

With growing security concerns in the Gulf region, terrorism, and conflict with Iran, it has become imperative for the country to modernize its air defense. According to defense sources, Saudi Arabia signed a deal worth US$29.4 billion in 2011, to procure 84 new F-15S combat fighter aircraft and to upgrade 70 existing F-15S, procured in 1992, to its new standard.
