Afghan Defense Market - Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2024

Summary

Afghanistan’s defense spending is set to increase significantly as the country sets out to completely overhaul its national infrastructure and defense industry. The US invasion of Afghanistan after the September 2001 attacks led to the formation of a democratic government which is now focusing on the total revamp of its national infrastructure and defense industry. As per the US declared aim, US troops plan to draw down and suitably transfer responsibilities to the Afghan National Army (ANA) in a phased manner before exiting. The US promised to withdraw half of its troops from Afghanistan by the end of April 2019.

Afghanistan contributes a minimal amount to its national security and defense budget. Furthermore, the lack of a developed indigenous defense industry means that even basic military needs, from boots to ammunition, must be sourced from abroad, often at a higher cost. Threats rising from the Taliban’s frequent attacks and illegal drug traders are key factors in Afghanistan’s efforts to boost its combat readiness. However, constant unrest has hampered the capability of its defense industry, making the country reliant on imports.

Afghanistan’s total defense expenditure increased at a CAGR of 0.40% during the historic period, from US$6.2 billion in 2015 to US$6.3 billion in 2019. The country’s total defense expenditure is forecast to increase at a CAGR of 6.67% over 2020-2024, from US$6.3 billion in 2019 to US$8.8 billion in 2024.
US aid to Afghanistan is expected to increase through the forecast period

Over the forecast period, aid is projected to continue to increase gradually reaching US$6.2 billion in 2024, owing to the need to fund Afghanistan’s defense modernization program. US aid also aims to enable more meaningful changes to society as the country announced more than US$61 million in additional humanitarian assistance to meet the needs of vulnerable communities, displaced persons and returning refugees across Afghanistan, as well as Afghan refugees in the region.
