Key Highlights
With few internal or external threats, German defense policy is largely aligned towards the prevention and containment of crises and conflicts. Despite this, the country’s defense expenditure which valued at US$44.1 billion in 2011, allocates as much as US$14.6 billion on the procurement of military hardware. Furthermore, the country has a mature domestic sector, capable of fulfilling both local and export requirements. Nevertheless, Germany’s participation in peacekeeping activities and in the development of advanced military transport aircraft is expected to support the growth of its defense industry over the forecast period.
With no exclusive organizations focused on fighting terrorism, Germany’s homeland security expenditure is largely concerned with the security of its borders and the international threat of terrorism. Indeed, while Germany is expected to procure biometric identification systems to prevent illegal immigration by increased efficiency in border patrol, attractive opportunities are forecast to emerge in the areas of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), all-terrain vehicles, satellite radar systems and, if it were to pull out of its ongoing A400M development program, military transport aircraft.
