The Angolan Defense Market: Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and $1.9 Billion Opportunity Outlook to 2024 -

The "Angolan Defense Market - Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The Angolan defense and security budget is expected to register a CAGR of 3.86% over the forecast period to reach US$1.9 billion in 2024.

Angola's military and security expenditure, which stands at US$1.6 billion in 2019, declined at a CAGR of -19.07% during the historic period. In June 2014, oil prices plummeted nearly 60%, which resulted in the decline in the defense budget's growth rate during the historic period. Over the forecast period, the defense budget is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 3.86% to reach US$1.9 billion in 2024. This is primarily attributed to the country's efforts to upgrade its military arsenal, as well as enhance its border security.

The country's capital expenditure allocation averaged 11.3% during 2015-2019 and is expected to marginally decline to average 10.9% over the forecast period. Consequently, revenue expenditure is expected to increase from an average of 88.7% during 2014-2018 to 89.1% over the forecast period, which will be directed towards additional recruitment, training, and development programs for military personnel. The capital expenditure allocation, which registered a CAGR of -22.23% during the historic period, is projected to increase at a CAGR of 4.34% over 2020-2024, primarily due to a recovery in global oil prices, which is anticipated to enable the country to finance the procurement of multirole aircraft and naval vessels.

Aircraft accounted for the majority of Angola's imports during 2014-2018, with Russia being the largest supplier. Aircraft, armored vehicles, artillery and engines were the other defense imports during 2014-2018, with Israel, Bulgaria, China and other countries including South Africa, the UK and the US being the other significant suppliers. The country does not export any arms to foreign countries, as its domestic defense industry is under-developed.
