  • The Chinese defense budget grew at a CAGR of 7.10% during 2014-2018, from US$131.1 billion in 2014 to US$172.5 billion in 2018.
  • Defense imports are expected to remain low over the forecast period as China is investing in the local manufacture of its defense requirements, such as J-15 fighters, J-20 fighters, Yun-20 and Y-30 transport aircraft, and Type 055 destroyers.
  • The country’s focus on manufacturing and procuring defense equipment domestically is reflected in the steady decline of imports since 2013; it is expected that China will continue to procure defense equipment from its nationalized companies over the forecast period.
