Malaysia Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

Malaysia Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

BMI View: Defence Spending in Malaysia will be ramped up in 2015, with a 10% budgetary increaseannounced in October 2014. We expect a slight increase in procurement activity while the majority of thedevelopment budget will be dedicated to expanding existing projects. The release of a new five yeardevelopment plan and a review of Malaysia's defence offsetting programme could yield changes for theindigenous defence sector when unveiled in 2015. Malaysia enjoys peace and stability with regards tointernal and external security threats. Key concerns include continued incursions by Filipino groups andrising piracy in regional waters.

We expect import volumes to grow in 2015 in line with the 10% year-on-year (y-o-y) defence budgetincrease, announced in October 2014, with development expenditure for 2015 set at USD1.0bn compared toUSD0.8bn in 2014. The government has yet to announce the specific breakdown of developmentexpenditure, but we expect investment in maritime and aviation assets. The navy will see construction of sixSecond Generation Patrol Vessel-Littoral Combat Ships begin in Q115, with the steel for the ships to be cutat a plant in Holland before being shipped (in a complete building kit) to the Boustead Naval Shipyard.

While Malaysia's air force is set to take delivery of the first of four Airbus A400M Atlas transport aircraft inearly 2015.
