What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The Azerbaijani defense market, which has grown over the last decade, is expected to demonstrate the potential to
grow at a faster pace than its neighbors, over the forecast period. Its defense and security budget registered a growth rate of 15.24% in the last five years and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.74%, to value more than US$5 billion by 2018. Strained relations with its neighbor and the aim of increasing its importance in regional politics through military build-up, mean the country is expected to continue to procure substantial arms and technology. In addition, Azerbaijan is putting efforts into reviving its arms manufacturing sector through collaboration with foreign companies in an effort to enhance its ability to export weapons to other countries. This will provide growth opportunities for foreign companies to enter the market, either through direct deals or through collaborations with local manufacturers, to tap the fastest growing military market in the Eurasia region.

Key Market Issues
Bribery and corruption have been prevalent in Azerbaijani defense procurement for many years, largely due to unaccountable, secretive and internally feuding armed forces. The country does not have sufficient safeguards against corruption in the defense sector, as there is little democratic control of the army by the Parliament, thereby complicating its defense business environment. Amidst the calls for reforms in defense sector, the President reshuffled the Ministry of Defense in October 2013, by appointing a new defense minister in the place of the long standing previous minister. Currently, Azerbaijan is implementing NATO recommended reforms to enhance transparency in defense deals and democratic civilian control over its armed forces.
A major obstacle to investment in the Azerbaijani defense industry is the arms embargo imposed by OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) group following the war with Armenia in early 1990s. During the review period, the country had to rely on its traditional supplier Russia for the majority of supplies. In addition to Russia, Azerbaijan imported mainly from Israel and South Africa, who supply cheaper varieties of weapons produced by the US and European companies. With the majority of defense conglomerates originating from Europe, the country will have to rely on smaller companies from countries such as Israel, Turkey, South Africa, and South Korea for investment in its domestic defense industry.
