Canada - Defense and Security: Truncated spends for military supremacy (Strategy, Performance and Risk Analysis)

The aircraft category remains one of the key growth drivers of the Canadian defense and security industry accounting for 46.9% of capital expenditure in 2016; followed by the C4ISR category with 8.0%. Overall, Canadian defense and security CAPEX posted a CAGR of 17.3%, rising from US$3.1 billion in 2012 to US$5.9 billion in 2016, owing to modernization plans outlined in the Canada First Defense Strategy (CFDS). CAPEX will increase due to a considerable number of government-planned procurements.

Key Highlights
Aircraft and C4ISR systems to drive capital expenditure:
Aircraft accounted for 46.9% of military CAPEX in Canada in 2016, followed by C4ISR with 8.0%. Modernization initiatives will see Canada procure F-35 fighter jets and replace older CF-18 fighters by 2021. In addition, the government announced plans to replace obsolete jets with the cheaper F/A-18 Super Hornets. The collective share of the aircraft and C4ISR categories with regards to capital expenditure will stand at 67.2% in 2021.

Imports from the US increased during the review period:
Defense imports increased at a CAGR of 5.9%, rising from US$205 million in 2012 to US$258 million in 2016; sensors and radars to supplement modernization programs were the key growth drivers. The majority of the country’s military hardware is imported from US-based defense contractors and it is anticipated that Canada will procure CH-47F Chinook helicopters, C-130J-30 Hercules aircraft, M-113A3 armored personnel vehicles, and AN/APS-143(V) radars over the forecast period.

Emphasis on homeland security:
Threats emanating from terrorism, illegal immigration, and cyberattacks will drive Canada’s homeland security expenditure. Canada’s aim to reinforce its land and maritime borders will cause spending to post a forecast-period CAGR of 2.64% to reach US$739.5 million in 2021. According to the government’s Economic Action Plan 2015, a public safety broadband network was set up for an investment of US$2.2 million to support the police.
