Key Highlights

The South African defense market, though not particularly large, is a moderately growing market with a defense expenditure allocation of US$3.6 billion for 2009. Post-apartheid, the country witnessed a significant decline in its defense budget, both in terms of value and as a percentage of GDP. Furthermore, a peaceful neighboring environment and very low terrorist activity levels contribute to the recent overall reductions in defense spending. Nevertheless, although the threat from external aggression is low, the country has one of the highest crime rates in the world. However, its hosting of the FIFA World Cup 2010 and concerns about the future prospects of the country, should an incident have occurred, has intensified the South African governments focus on tackling crime. Furthermore, as the country is engaged in various peacekeeping missions under the United Nations, African Union and Southern African Development Community, external funding for these missions additionally increases the defense budget.
By the end of 2015, Progressive Intelligence estimates that South Africas defense expenditure as a percentage of its gross domestic product (GDP) will rise from its current level of 1.3% to 1.5%. This translates as budget increase from US$3.6 billion in 2009 to US$5.6 billion in 2015, and a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.06%. Currently, 78% of the defense budget is allocated for revenue expenditure, and the remaining for capital expenditure, a trend that is expected to continue until 2015. As a result of the challenges caused by increased crime levels, it is expected that there will be a greater immediate demand for monitoring and security check equipment, including CCTV. Over the next two to three years, it is also predicted that there will be a rise in demand for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), military transport fleet, maritime surveillance equipments, including patrol aircrafts, landward defense systems, and survey vessels
