Key Highlights
The Pakistani defense industry, which valued US$5.8 billion in 2011, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% over the forecast period, to value US$9.9 billion by 2016. Indeed, the increased internal instability of the country following the onset of its participation in the international military campaign against terrorism, which is widely referred to as the ‘war on terror’, will continue to drive Pakistani defense expenditure over the next five years. Moreover, the nation’s long-standing territorial dispute with neighboring India means that the Pakistani defense strategy will largely correspond with the Indian’s spending and development programs. Furthermore, Pakistan is expected to allocate more than 3% of its GDP on defense expenditure over the forecast period, despite its relatively small economy. However, while the country received an additional US$7.4 billion of military aid from the US for its contributions towards the ‘war on terror’ during the review period, it is expected to receive an increased package of US$7.6 billion over the forecast period.
