Future of the Turkish Defense Industry – Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2022
Turkish defense expenditure stands at US$10.6 Billion in 2017, and registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -7.49% during the historic period. The country’s strained relationship with Greece, persistent threats from the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), active participation in peacekeeping missions, and the reduction in foreign dependency for military equipment procurement drove defense expenditure during the historic period. With this trend expected to continue, expenditure is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.88% over the forecast period to value US$13.5 Billion in 2022.
Turkey’s defense expenditure will largely be driven by a dispute over territorial rights with Greece, security threats possessed by the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK), participation in peacekeeping missions, and the country’s focus on enhancing its defense export market while minimizing its foreign dependency for arms procurement. The country has no plans to decrease its defense budget and will increase its expenditure on procurement for the foreseeable future.
Turkish homeland security (HLS) expenditure, stands at US$1.5 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach US$2.4 Billion in 2022, registering a CAGR of 9.02% over the forecast period.
