We forecast Israel'sdefence spending to remain above 5% of GDP throughout the coming decade despite budget constraints, asthe country seeks to maintain its qualitative military edge over its neighbours through new procurementsand the development of new systems. Domestic demand for defence equipment will also be driven byelevated security threats, especially from Hamas and Hizbullah, as well as the risk of conflict with Iran.
