Report Highlight:

The Saudi Arabian defense industry is one of the largest defense markets globally and is valued at over US$52billion. During the review period, the country’s defense expenditure grew at a CAGR of almost 11%, and is expected to record further growth over the next four years.
The key factors driving the growth include increases in cross-border insurgency, domestic unease with the ruling regime, the rising number of Al-Qaeda training camps in the country, regional rivalry with Iran and the desire to emerge as the most influential nation in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia’s substantial defense budget, coupled with the limited capabilities of domestic defense firms, is attracting foreign OEMs into the market.

Saudi Arabia’s robust economy enables it to invest large amounts of money in the procurement of defense equipment and, over the forecast period, the nation is expected to increase its defense expenditure to over 8% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Rising tensions with Iran forced the country to purchase American weapons at record levels in recent times. Since the nation does not share a border with Iran, its arms purchases focused on expensive warplanes and complex missile defense systems.
