26 Feb 13. Research and Markets announced the addition of the “Future of the UAE Defense Industry – Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2017” report to their offering. This report is the result of extensive market and company research covering the UAE defense industry, and provides detailed analysis of both historic and forecast defense industry values including key growth stimulators, analysis of the leading companies in the industry, and key news. The UAE defense expenditure increased at a CAGR of 3.4% during the review period and valued US$9.3bn in 2012. The modernization initiatives of the UAE are reflected in the growth of its defense budget over the review period. The multitude of deals signed with foreign OEMs at its biennial international defense expositions proves the attractiveness of the UAE’s defense market. With substantial financial resources, minimal indigenous defense capabilities and a growing threat from Iran’s advances in ballistic missile technology, the UAE is investing heavily in defense, with a particular focus on fighter jets, anti-missile systems and homeland security. The country is expected to spend US$52.5bn on defense during the forecast period. (Source: BUSINESS WIRE)
