BMI View:
The Brazilian defence sector is set to continue to be one of the most active and open for foreign players, both with regards to imported goods from more established countries, and its relatively unfettered export market. In addition, the government's emphasis on creating a self-sufficient defence sector over the longer term is resulting in an ever-increasing number of partnerships and joint ventures on various development programmes between Brazilian companies and their foreign peers.

At present, the domestic defence sector is comparatively well developed, particularly with regards to small firearms, ammunition and aerospace products, and relatively diverse. However, the armed forces and police force lack advanced maritime, surveillance and rockets/missile capabilities and are keen to expand these areas. This is not only resulting in a ramping up of imports relating to these segments, (from countries such as France, the US and Russia) but also fostering partnership opportunities, as companies such as Odebrecht and Embraer seek to develop their R&D capabilities via joint ventures and development programmes with foreign companies predicated on technology transfers.
