BMI View: Demand for military equipment is strong in Malaysia. The country faces threats from Islamistextremist groups, militants in southern Philippines, organised crime, piracy, and regional tensions overmaritime disputes. Meanwhile, many of its neighbours are investing heavily in raising their own defencecapabilities. Much of the armed forces' equipment is outdated and needs to be replaced, although spendingis limited by budget constraints amid the government's fiscal consolidation efforts. This will mean that someprocurement programmes will need to be postponed or cancelled, however, the current size of the budgetdoes allow the defence ministry to carry on with acquisitions of equipment deemed critical for strengtheningnaval, air and counterterrorism capabilities. Such equipment will need to be sourced from abroad, due tolocal companies' lack of advanced technological capabilities across these segments.

Latest Developments
