Business Monitor International's Israel Defence and Security Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, defence and security associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Israel's defence and security industry.

While the Arab Spring has raised hopes for a new more democratic and more peaceful Middle East for many in Israel, the overthrow of the country’s erstwhile ally in Egypt and disruption of the region’s balance of power has led to unease over the future of the country’s security situation. In spite of these concerns and a number of high-profile incidents, the number of active conflict points has actually dropped since 2008. Nevertheless, Israel continues to exist in a fragile and dangerous environment with few regional allies and as a result the country’s defence industry will continue to be relied upon in order to maintain everyday life in the country. Because of this experience, Israel is at the forefront of much of the world’s counter-terrorism and surveillance equipment.

Israel is a major importer of surface ships and warplanes. READ MORE >
