BMI View: The UAE's local defence industry is still in the early stages of development, and as such,domestic companies rely on assistance from foreign firms to manufacture sophisticated military equipment.The armed forces' requirements for high-tech naval, air power, missile and surveillance products aretherefore predominantly met through imports. However, the government - as part of its economicdiversification strategy - is working to expand the local defence industrial base, and is actively encouragingjoint ventures (JVs) between international companies and UAE-based entities. The country ranks in the top15 globally for the size of its defence budget, and we expect further spending growth over our forecastperiod to 2025, driven by the rising threat from Islamist militancy in the region, growing levels ofcybercrime, and the persistent risk of conflict with Iran. This will facilitate continued growth in bothdefence imports and exports over the long term.
