Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
The Future of the Nigerian 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 Nigerian defense industry.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The Nigerian defense market, valued at US$2.3 billion in 2013, is expected to see a double digit growth rate
over the forecast period, to reach US$4.4 billion by 2018. Piracy, oil smuggling in the Gulf of Guinea and a contribution to peacekeeping operations are expected to drive the country's military expenditure to register a growth rate of 13.62% over the forecast period. The growth in military expenditure will be assisted by the country's stable economic growth over the forecast period, which will a see rise in defense expenditure as a percentage of GDP from 0.8% in 2013 to 1.1% in 2018. Nigeria's capital defense expenditure is expected to increase from 0.4 billion in 2013 to 0.6 billion by 2018, although its share in total expenditure is expected to decrease from 15% during the review period to 14% over the forecast period. Defense equipment such as marine helicopters, fighters, patrol vessels, and armored personnel carriers are expected to be demand over the forecast period. An under developed domestic defense industry and availability of funds propel the Nigerian government to import from the countries producing low-cost defense equipment. The growing threat from Boko Haram and other extremist groups in northeastern states, and drug trafficking are expected to drive the Nigerian government's investments in homeland security over the forecast period. Police modernization and homeland security infrastructure developments are expected to be primary areas for investment by the government.

Key Market Issues
According to the Corruption Perceptions Index 2010 of Transparency International, Nigeria is classified as a highly corrupt country. Corruption can result in unfair contract awards and has become a major obstacle for foreign companies aiming to supply arms to the Nigerian MoD. There is also widespread corruption in the Nigerian Police Force; embezzlement and mismanagement of the police budget has resulted in only a small portion of the budget being spent on protecting internal security, resulting in an increased internal threat to the country. In January 2008 the Chief of Army Staff, acting for and on behalf of the government of Nigeria, awarded contracts to Esquire Ventures Ltd., Profitel Ltd., Century Communications Ltd., and Jonny-Way Investments Ltd., for the supply of various specialist military items to be used by Nigeria's UN-backed troops, for NGN1,190.7 million (US$10.3 million). Materials valued at NGN660 million (US$5.7 million) were supplied and others worth NGN530.7 million (US$4.6 million) were ready for shipment, but the contractors were paid only NGN175 million (US$1.5 million), leaving the contractors underpaid, despite the country receiving funding for the project from the UN worth several million dollars. Issues such as this are causing the Ministry of Defense and Nigerian Police to maintain a high level of focus on anti-corruption activities.
