Sri Lanka's capital expenditure allocation, which stood at an average of 13%, is expected to decrease to an average of 6.6% during the period 2017-2022.

Russia emerged as the largest supplier of defense equipment to the country, accounting for 80% total arms imports, followed by the Australia with 20% during 2012-2016. Moreover, aircraft were the most imported military hardware during this period, and this is expected to continue during the forecast period along with naval vessels.
