This report, The Saudi Arabian Defence Market 2011-2021, finds a robust market in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia , a critically important country that is the world’s leading oil exporter and which also has one of the most powerful armed forces in the Middle East . Saudi Arabia had a total defence budget of $43bn in 2010. Visiongain assesses that of that figure, $11.1bn was acquisitions spending for purchasing new or upgraded military equipment. It is expected that Saudi Arabia will provide robust demand for defence acquisitions over the next decade. Saudi Arabia faces a number of security concerns, such as its regional rivalry with Iran , the threats posed by various terrorist and insurgent groups, the kingdom’s desire to play a leading role in Middle East security, and piracy off the waters of Somalia . It has also had to face up to the civil unrest that swept through several Arab states in North Africa and the Middle East in early 2011. Visiongain sees robust Saudi demand for military equipment across a wide range of systems. There are several ongoing and planned programmes that provide opportunities for defence companies. This report is packed with 69 tables and charts that show key trends in defence acquisitions spending in the Saudi Arabian defence market. (Source: Yahoo!/PRNewswire)
