Nigeria defence market expenditure to reach value of $2.23 billion during 2013

During the review period, the Nigerian defense budget recorded a CAGR of 13.03%, with expenditure mainly driven by participation in peacekeeping initiatives and operations to stop the smuggling of oil. The defense budget, which stood at 0.78% of GDP in 2012, is expected to decrease to 0.75% of GDP by 2017, as the country's defense expenditure growth is expected to outpace its GDP growth. The defense budget is also expected to increase during the forecast period, due to increased deployment of armed forces in peacekeeping operations and significant threats to its national security. During the review period, the country's capital expenditure allocation stood at an average of 14.53% of the total defense budget, and is expected to decrease to an average of 11.2% over the forecast period due to reduced equipment purchase allocations.

Nigerian military expenditure is expected to be mainly driven by peacekeeping operations and efforts to stop the smuggling of stolen oil. Nigeria became a member of the UN in 1960 and this involvement in peacekeeping operations will significantly drive the country's defense expenditure over the forecast period, in particular the procurement of armored vehicles and transport aircraft. Being the largest producer of crude oil and oil exports, the country is threatened by the smuggling of oil, especially in the oil-rich Niger delta region. In March 2011 Nigerian soldiers destroyed nearly 500 illegal oil refineries in the Niger Delta region to stop the smuggling of stolen oil in the country.

Key Market Issues

- According to the Corruption Perceptions Index 2010 of Transparency International, Nigeria is classified as a highly corrupt country. Corruption can result in unfair contract awards and has become a major obstacle for foreign companies aiming to supply arms to the Nigerian MoD. There is also widespread corruption in the Nigerian Police Force; embezzlement and mismanagement of the police budget has resulted in only a small portion of the budget being spent on protecting internal security, resulting in an increased internal threat to the country.

- With a defense budget of US$2.2 billion in 2011, Nigeria invests only 0.78% of its GDP towards defense. During the review period an average of 16.5% of the defense budget was allocated for capital expenditure, representing a relatively low allocation for the purchase of equipment, and high-technology arms and ammunition. As a result, the country's relatively small defense budget does not attract foreign defense companies, and the prohibition of FDI in the defense sector also acts as a barrier to market entry for foreign suppliers.

Key Highlights

- Nigerian defense expenditure grew at a CAGR of 13.03% during the review period, and is estimated to reach US$2.23 billion in 2013. Active participation in UN peacekeeping missions and operations to stop the smuggling of stolen oil stimulated expenditure during the review period. These factors are expected to continue to drive defense expenditure throughout the forecast period, with spending anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 6.5% and to reach US$2.87 billion by 2017. As a percentage of GDP (gross domestic product), the country's defense budget stood at 0.78% in 2011, and is expected to decrease to 0.75% of GDP by 2017.

- The country's homeland security expenditure, estimated at US$2.42 billion in 2013, is expected to register a CAGR of 11.15% during the forecast period and to reach US$3.7 billion by 2017. Nigeria's homeland security expenditure is primarily driven by the policing of extremism, drug trafficking, cybercrime, and money laundering. In order to counter these threats, the country must invest in surveillance and intelligence technologies such as electronic identification documents, e-passports, automated border crossing systems, and CCTV (closed circuit television) systems.

- The country's defense capabilities are limited to the production of small arms and ammunition, and aircraft maintenance and repair services. The domestic defense industry comprises state-owned companies including Defense Industries Corporation (DICON), specializing in the production of small arms and ammunition, and Dornier Aviation Nigeria AIEP Limited (DANA), which provides aircraft maintenance and services. As a result, the country imports defense equipment such as aircraft, missiles, and armored vehicles, which domestic suppliers do not supply. As the country does not spend a significant amount of its defense budget on advanced technology, and research and development, the domestic defense market remains under-developed.
