Lon­don, June 19th, 2012 – Dur­ing the review peri­od, the defense expen­di­ture of Aus­tralia exhib­it­ed a CAGR of ‑1.42% to reach an esti­mat­ed US$28.5 bil­lion in 2012, and is expect­ed to grow at a CAGR of 5.13% over the fore­cast peri­od to reach US$38.8 bil­lion by 2017.The gov­ern­ment is expect­ed to make cumu­la­tive cap­i­tal acqui­si­tions of US$40.2 bil­lion dur­ing the fore­cast peri­od, 35% of which will be pro­cured from domes­tic firms, in order to sup­port gov­ern­ment plans to increase the inde­pen­dence of its defense indus­try. The acqui­si­tions are expect­ed to focus on the improve­ment of capa­bil­i­ties of the Aus­tralian Air Force and Aus­tralian Navy (ref­er­ence see graph below). 

The Aus­tralian DMO has tak­en crit­i­cism for the project delays and cost over­runs asso­ci­at­ed with its domes­tic defense pro­cure­ments, sev­er­al of which have cost dou­ble the orig­i­nal esti­ma­tions. Cur­rent­ly, the Aus­tralian defense indus­try is fac­ing cost over­runs and delays in its project to acquire 100 F‑35 joint strike fight­ers. As a result, sim­i­lar oppor­tu­ni­ties may be offered to for­eign firms, rather than domes­tic firms, dur­ing the fore­cast period. 

The Aus­tralian Indus­try Capa­bil­i­ty (AIC) pro­gram sup­ports the domes­tic defense indus­try by encour­ag­ing for­eign OEMs to grant domes­tic access to the glob­al sup­ply chain in exchange for mar­ket entry. Glob­al sup­ply chain deeds can be entered into vol­un­tar­i­ly or as part of a pro­cure­ment con­tract, and insist that the for­eign OEM pro­cures its equip­ment or com­po­nents from a domes­tic com­pa­ny. While glob­al sup­ply chain deeds offer sub­stan­tial export oppor­tu­ni­ties to domes­tic firms, they can pose major con­cerns for for­eign OEMs, as Aus­tralian defense prod­ucts are often expen­sive due to high labor costs and expen­sive logis­tics relat­ed to the country’s geo­graph­i­cal location. 

The Aus­tralian Government’s Novem­ber 2009 Cyber Secu­ri­ty Strat­e­gy pro­fessed the fact that Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment com­put­er net­works are increas­ing­ly under threat from mali­cious cyber-attacks. Recent­ly the Gov­ern­ment has ini­ti­at­ed the Inter­net Gate­way Reduc­tion Pro­gram, which aims to reduce the num­ber of inter­net gate­ways to the min­i­mum for improved oper­a­tional effi­cien­cy, reli­a­bil­i­ty and secu­ri­ty. The domes­tic Aus­tralian cyber secu­ri­ty indus­try is enter­ing into part­ner­ships with the US cyber secu­ri­ty par­tic­i­pants in order to gain tech­ni­cal and strate­gic insights into the domain. 

About Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence
This report is one of a series avail­able to sub­scribers of our pre­mi­um research plat­form, Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence. Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence pro­vides a stream of con­tin­u­ous­ly updat­ed cus­tomer and com­peti­tor intel­li­gence, as well as detailed research reports pro­vid­ing an unri­valled source of glob­al infor­ma­tion on the lat­est devel­op­ments in the defence indus­try. Strate­gic Defence Intelligence’s unique mon­i­tor­ing plat­form tracks glob­al defence activ­i­ty for over 2,500 com­pa­nies and 65 prod­uct cat­e­gories in real time and in a high­ly struc­tured man­ner, giv­ing a com­pre­hen­sive and eas­i­ly-search­able pic­ture of all defence indus­try activ­i­ty. The site fea­tures: dai­ly updat­ed analy­sis, com­ment and news, com­pa­ny and cus­tomer pro­files, defence spend­ing, ten­ders and con­tracts, prod­uct and tech­nol­o­gy intel­li­gence, a research and analy­sis data­base pro­vid­ing access to indus­try and com­peti­tor reports to enable busi­ness and mar­ket plan­ning, and ful­ly cus­tomiz­able tools, includ­ing instant per­son­al­ized report gen­er­a­tion and cus­tom alerts. 

For more than a decade pro­vides infor­ma­tion from the field of for­eign and secu­ri­ty pol­i­cy. It all start­ed in the year 2001. After 911 the founder and cur­rent edi­tor in chief Hol­ger Paletschek start­ed to cre­ate a Ger­man-speak­ing web­site with an overview about the armed forces of the world. Today stands for cur­rent news, back­ground arti­cles, geopo­lit­i­cal analy­ses, net­work of experts, indus­try lead­ers, polit­i­cal deci­sion mak­ers, as well as infor­ma­tion about the armed forces of the world pro­vid­ed in Ger­man and English.
