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

The brutal atrocities and insurgencies by two major armed militia groups - FARC and ELN have been a major concern for the Colombian government.In 2017, the government signed a peace accord with the FARC leadership to restore socio-economic stability in the country.

However, approximately 1,200 FARC dissidents shied away from the accord and continued to pose a significant threat to national security.

Against this backdrop, it is prudent for Colombia to invest in the development and maintenance of a robust defense and security posture. With this trend expected to continue over the forecast period, Colombia’s defense expenditure is anticipated to register a CAGR of 15.14% to value US$47.2 billion in 2024. As a percentage of GDP, the country’s defense expenditure is expected to average 9.12% over the forecast period, compared to 4.02% recorded during the historic period.

During the historic period, the Colombian government allocated an average of 3.6% of its defense budget to capital expenditure, which includes both the purchase of new equipment and upgrade programs for existing equipment. The rest of the budget was allocated to revenue expenditure, which includes salaries, planning, administration and training expenditure. On a cumulative basis, Colombia allocated US$2.3 billion to capital expenditure over the historic period, which is anticipated to value US$5.9 billion over the forecast period. Capital expenditure is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 14.67%, while revenue expenditure will increase at a CAGR of 15.23% during the forecast period.

The US has developed multiple programs supporting the Colombian government, to establish law enforcement in the most conflict-ridden and neglected rural areas of Colombia. These US programs also take into account various socio-economic aspects for the Colombian population, such as agrarian reforms, better educational opportunities, and a stable business environment to ensure continuous public as well as private investments. . However, manufacturers from Russia, France, Germany, and Israel are also gaining traction in the Colombian defense market.

Apart from this, Colombia also enjoys close defense cooperation with NATO, and is one of the organization’s key partners in Latin America. In March 2013, NATO allies adopted a bespoke approach to cultivate close cooperation with Colombia in specific areas of common interest.

- The Colombian defense industry is expected to register steady growth over the next five years due to the rise of both external and internal security threats, along with the stabilization of the economy. Colombia exhibits a complex security environment due to the presence of various extremist armed rebel forces.
- Moreover, the rise in drug trafficking and other public safety issues such as kidnapping and extortions has compelled the current administration to reshape its defense forces by procuring arms, main battle tanks, UAVs, and air defense systems. In 2018, outgoing president of Colombia - Juan Manuel Santos (2010-2018) signed an agreement with NATO, to become its global partner.
- This newly developed alliance is expected to enhance transparency in the arms and ammunition procurement process. Although the country allocated an average of 3.9% of its GDP for defense sector during the historic period, the majority of the budget was allocated to revenue expenditure, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
