Future of the Egyptian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2022
Egypt’s total defense expenditure valued at about US$4 Billion in 2017 and is anticipated to post a forecast-period CAGR of more than 6.5%, to reach around US$5.6 Billion in 2022. The country has undergone a period of political turmoil since January 2011 which began with the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak following 30 years of autocratic rule and ended in the nation’s first democratic elections, which saw a new President being elected and deposed 13 months later. A cycle of violence and terror attacks have taken the country to the brink of civil war and caused the military to play a more active role in state affairs.
Egyptian defense budget represented an average of more than 16% of the allocated budget during 2013–2017, in addition to military aid of more than US$7 Billion from the US. This share is anticipated to increase to an average of just over 17% during 2018–2022.
Egypt’s domestic defense industry is completely controlled by the military through the Ministry of Military Production, and the presence of private and foreign companies is seen as a threat to the country’s national security interests. Egypt’s defense industry is also characterized by low R&D expenditure and a focus on labor-intensive manufacturing products. The military’s industrial base aims to develop the country’s defense industry by agreeing to license products and enter into technology transfer agreements with foreign companies.
Historically, US defense firms have entered the Egyptian defense industry through government-initiated foreign military financing initiatives. Egypt’s preference for the manufacture of defense systems through license agreements has resulted in a number of production activities with Chinese, German, and French companies in fields such as trainer aircraft and anti-tank missiles. The country is also involved in bilateral defense agreements with foreign governments.
