Croatian Defense Market - Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2024

Summary
Croatia’s defense budget is expected to increase at a CAGR of 9.15%, primarily to counter terrorist threats and enhance defense capabilities. Croatia joined NATO in April 2009, becoming the second previously Yugoslav country to do so after Slovenia, which joined in 2004. Relations between the NATO countries and Russia have reached their lowest point since the end of the Cold War and the US is exerting pressure on its European allies to increase their defense budgets, an area where Croatia has been lagging behind.

All NATO partners had agreed to comply to contribute at least 2% of their GDP towards defense expenditure in 2014 with Croatia, who joined the NATO in 2009, allocating 1.5% of its GDP on defense in the 2019 budget. The country has emerged as an important contributor to regional stability and international security since joining NATO.

The country’s participation in peacekeeping operations and counter terrorism also fueled Croatia’s defense expenditure during the historic period. With this trend expected to continue over the forecast period, Croatia’s defense expenditure is anticipated to register a CAGR of 9.15% to value US$1.22 billion in 2024. As a percentage of GDP, the country’s defense expenditure is expected to average 1.7% over the forecast period, compared to the 1.3% recorded during the historic period.

Croatia’s homeland security (HLS) expenditure, which recorded a CAGR of 7.07% during the historic period, increased from US$682 million in 2015 to US$896 million in 2019. The HLS budget will be invested into the procurement of surveillance and intelligence technologies, such as electronic identification documents, automated border crossing systems and CCTV (closed circuit television) systems. Croatian HLS expenditure is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.41% over the forecast period, increasing from US$920 million in 2020 to US$1.05 billion by 2024.

During 2014-2018, the US emerged as the largest supplier of military hardware to Croatia, accounting for 63% of the country’s defense imports, followed by Germany and Ukraine with respective shares of 30% and 7%. The US mainly supplied Croatia with aircraft, armored vehicles, artillery and missiles, a trend anticipated to continue over the forecast period due to the country’s dependence on the US to meet its key defense requirements.

All NATO partners had agreed to comply to contribute at least 2% of their GDP towards defense expenditure in 2014 with Croatia, who joined the NATO in 2009, allocating 1.5% of its GDP on defense in the 2019 budget.
- The country has emerged as an important contributor to regional stability and international security since joining NATO. It is a relatively peaceful country compared to other Central European nations, which encounter frequent turbulence. Croatia is also an active participant in the NATO Partnership for Peace Program. Since 2003, over 6,700 Croatian soldiers have participated in NATO-led operations, missions and activities. In honor of the 10th anniversary of Croatia’s accession to NATO, international military exercises will be held in the country in May and June 2019, where 750 Croatian military personnel, 450 representatives of NATO countries and partner countries, 60 aircraft, 30 helicopters, and 800 ground vehicles will take part. This first part of a threefold military exercise, dubbed Immediate Response 19, was launched on 10 May 2019, and will be followed by the Astral Knight 19 and Swift Response 19. The country is also working aggressively to strengthen its diplomatic ties and defense cooperation with other countries to enhance its military capabilities. Croatia recently signed defense cooperation agreements with countries like the Philippines and Albania which is expected to provide fresh impetus to defense cooperation between the countries.
- The growth in the Croatian defense market is primarily driven by the need to modernize the country’s defense arsenal and counter Russian military aggression in Ukraine, which brought about the possibility of an armed conflict in the European region. The country’s participation in peacekeeping operations and counter terrorism also fueled Croatia’s defense expenditure during the historic period.
