Venezuela defence market expenditure to reach a value of $8.4 billion by 2017

During the review period the Venezuelan defense budget recorded a CAGR of 9.4%, and expenditure was driven by the modernization of its armed forces and border disputes. In 2012, the Venezuelan defense budget stood at 1.5% of GDP, and is expected to increase to 2.3% by 2017 due to the increase in defense expenditure, which is expected to reach US$8.4 billion.

During the review period, Venezuela's capital expenditure allocation stood at 29.9% of the total defense budget, and this is expected to increase to 36.1% over the forecast period, due to decreased allocation for equipment purchases during 2009-2011. Consequently, the share of revenue expenditure in the total defense budget is expected to decrease from an average of 70.1% in the review period to an average of 63.9% in the forecast period.

The Venezuelan defense budget is primarily driven by the need to replace the obsolete and worn out equipment of its armed forces. The government has realized the need to re equip its military forces with advanced technology and, as a result, the Venezuelan military is currently going through a modernization phase. Venezuela shares borders with Colombia, Guyana and Brazil and has long standing border disputes with these countries. Tensions between Venezuela and Colombia escalated in August 1987 with the Colombian guided missile frigate Caldas trespassing into disputed waters and refusing to leave, claiming that they belonged to Colombia.

Key Market Issues

- During the review period, 76% of Venezuela's total defense imports were from Russia and 10% were from Spain. Venezuela is subject to an arms embargo from the US, a factor which led to Russia and China being key import partners. Aircraft and missiles collectively accounted for 70.2% of the country's total arms imports during the review period. As Venezuela plans to continue modernizing its armed forces, imports are expected to increase in the forecast period.

- Venezuela has allocated just US$4.9 billion for defense expenditure in 2012, which is a barrier to foreign companies aiming to enter the Venezuelan defense market. Moreover, high corruption levels and the US arms embargo, which prevents the export of defense products to Venezuela, also limit market entry opportunities for foreign companies.

Key Highlights

- Venezuelan defense expenditure recorded a CAGR of 10.55% during the review period and is expected to value US$5.3 billion in 2013. Modernization and border disputes drove expenditure during the review period and are expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period. Defense expenditure in Venezuela is anticipated to register a CAGR of 11.98% and reach a value of US$8.4 billion by 2017. As a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), the Venezuelan defense budget stood at 1.5% in 2012 and is expected to increase to 2.3% of GDP by 2017, largely due to the expected increase in defense expenditure.

- Venezuelan HLS expenditure is expected to value US$8.8 billion in 2013, register a CAGR of 2.46% during the forecast period and reach US$9.7 billion by 2017. HLS expenditure will be driven by efforts to stop cybercrime, drug trafficking, and organized crime, and in order to counter these threats, Venezuela must invest in surveillance and intelligence technologies.

- Venezuela's FDI policy imposes no restriction on foreign investment in the defense industry and allows foreign companies to acquire a domestic company or form a subsidiary in the country. There is no defense offset policy.
