Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
The Future of the Colombian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018 offers the reader an insight into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to gain market share in the Colombian defense industry.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The Colombian defense industry is expected to register strong growth in the next five years due to the
rise of both external and internal security threats. The significant reasons behind the rise of military expenditure are the threats from Venezuela and rebel forces to internal security and the fight against drug trafficking. This increase is required for the purchase of helicopters, battle tanks, UAVs, and air defense systems as, even though the country allocated an average of 4.4% of its GDP for defense during the review period, the majority of the budget was allocated to revenue expenditure.

Key Market Issues
Recently, the Colombian MoD acknowledged that cocaine smugglers and leftist rebels had infiltrated senior levels of the Colombian Army, impeding efforts to defeat guerrilla organizations and combat the drug trade. The Army discovered classified military information in computer files of guerrillas from the FARC rebel group, which led the MoD to believe senior military officials may be sharing information in exchange for bribes. In another incident, Diego Montoya, who is the perceived head of the Norte del Valle cartel and has been accused of exporting hundreds of tons of cocaine to the US, is believed to have recruited Army officers to provide him with protection and help his brother, Eugenio Montoya, to escape from a high-security prison.
The total Colombian defense budget was US$6.8 billion in 2013, of which only US$1.2 billion was allocated for capital expenditure purposes. Currently, domestic defense firms meet the majority of defense requirements in the low technology area, while foreign procurement is undertaken when the adequate sophistication and technology is not available in the domestic market. Many foreign OEMs consider such a low level of defense expenditure as an unfavorable condition in which to enter the Colombian defense industry. Furthermore, the Colombian government does not currently allow foreign investment in its defense industry, which further prevents foreign OEMs from entering the industry.
