"Future of the Pakistani Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2022

Summary

Pakistan’s domestic defense industry is able to fulfill the majority of the national requirements for low and mid-market technology defense systems, but is largely unable to supply technologically advanced defense systems. As a result, Pakistan was the seventh-largest importer of arms during 2011-2015, behind India, Saudi Arabia, China, UAE, Australia and Turkey. The country has strong relations with both the US and China, and these nations cater to the majority of Pakistan’s defense requirements. China was the primary arms supplier to Pakistan during 2012-2016. Pakistan also signed deals for the procurement of F-16 fighters, cobra helicopters, submarines, and the modernization of tanks.

Pakistan’s total defense budget increased significantly over 2013-2017, with a CAGR of 9.94%, the country invested US$6.3 Billion in the defense sector in 2013, and increased it to US$9.1 Billion in 2017. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, due to the government’s well-defined military procurements plans, in a bid to fight terrorist attacks. Moreover, the nation’s long-standing territorial dispute with India indicates that the Pakistani defense strategy will largely correspond with India’s expenditure and development programs.

However, the Pakistani export market is set to gradually grow over the forecast period, as the country begins to develop high quality indigenous defense systems. The country has also established a defense export promotion board to promote the export of systems such as battle tanks, advanced aircraft trainers, UAVs, and surface-to-air, and anti-tank missile systems.

The Pakistani defense budget is projected to increase from US$10.2 Billion in 2018 to US$15.8 Billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 11.63%. Pakistan is expected to allocate an average of 3% of its GDP to defense expenditure over the forecast period, despite its relatively small economy. Per capita defense expenditure is forecast to increase from US$47.2 in 2017 to US$73.9 in 2022.

Due to the lack of a structured defense budgeting policy until 2008, the Pakistani defense industry has experienced widespread corruption in the use of funds. Although defense procurements are supposed to be made through competitive bidding, this rule is not strictly enforced, which leads to a lack of transparency in the awarding of defense deals. Furthermore, while efforts have been made to streamline the defense budget, Pakistan does not disclose the portion of US military aid assigned for expenses.

Scope
- One of the most attractive defense markets in South Asia, Pakistan is expected to invest US$64.4 billion cumulatively over the forecast period, compared to US$38.3 billion spent between 2013 and 2016. The country’s defense expenditure is expected to focus more on the procurement of equipment to augment its air defense capabilities, enhancing operational capabilities of the current fleet of naval vessels, and communications and surveillance systems. Cumulative expenditure on the procurement of advanced military hardware is projected to be US$24.1 billion over the next five years.
- The capital expenditure allocation, which stood at an average of 13% during the historic period, is expected to decrease to an average of 6.6% during the forecast period. This is primarily due to the procurement of advanced defense equipment and focus on increasing the indigenous defense manufacturing capabilities.The country’s total defense budget increased significantly over 2013-2017, with a CAGR of 9.94%, the country invested US$6.3 billion in the defense sector in 2013, and increased it to US$9.1 billion in 2017. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, due to the government’s well-defined military procurements plans, in a bid to fight terrorist attacks. Moreover, the nation’s long-standing territorial dispute with India indicates that the Pakistani defense strategy will largely correspond with India’s expenditure and development programs. Key opportunities for equipment suppliers are expected in sectors such asfighters and multi-role aircraft, aviation MRO, frigates and submarines. Consequently, Pakistan’s capital expenditure share is expected to increase during the forecast period due to internal and external instability. Consequently, the share of capital expenditure as a percentage of overall defense expenditure is expected to increase from an average of 32.0% between 2011 and 2015 to 33.5% over the forecast period.
- The MoD is expected to invest in fighters and Multi-role aircraft, SSK-Diesel Electric Submarine, Aviation MRO and Main Battle Tanks.
