Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
The Future of the Greek 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 Greek defense industry.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Greece is one of the largest importers of arms in Europe and, of all the EU nations, allocates a
high percentage of its GDP for defense purposes, making it one of the most sought after markets for foreign OEMs. Despite the weakness of its financial sector, both the country's minimal domestic defense capabilities and the threat of the Turkish military have driven Greece to continue to invest in defense, with particular focus on fighter jets, submarines, missile systems and armored vehicles. The country primarily imports arms from EU nations and the US, and is assisting in the development of the domestic industry by sub-contracting deals achieved through defense offset obligations. Over the forecast period, the Greek Ministry of Defense (MoD) is estimated to allocate a cumulative of US$9.6 billion for the procurement of military equipment. In 2013, the country invested US$2.6 billion on homeland security (HLS), as part of its alignment with the international guidelines regarding the introduction of the biometric identification of citizens and travelers. Consequently, Greece is expected to make significant acquisitions in order to implement biometric profiling. The forecast period opportunities for foreign OEMs include the provision of fighter jets, jet trainers, armored vehicles, missile systems and maritime patrol aircraft.

Key Market Issues
In 2013, Greece allocated 2.3% of its GDP to defense expenditure, a figure that represents high GDP allocation among EU members. In addition, the country is the largest importer of arms in the EU region. Defense procurements are structured into five year programs, and frequently the allocated budget for a future five year program is used to pay the debts incurred during the current program, a method that results in escalating defense budget deficits. Greece is currently concentrating on the reduction of its defense allocation as a percentage of GDP, in order to reach the recommended EU level of 2%. This reduction is expected to affect the country's procurement plans, which will result in a considerable amount of cancellations, postponements or size decreases. It may also result in the country defaulting on payments for on-going contracts, for example in the case of the submarine procurement from German company Howaldtswerke Deutsche-Werft (HDW). To effectively offset the reduction in military budget, the Greek government has to focus on both the optimization of procurements and the reduction of operation costs by decommissioning aging systems.
