What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
With a defense budget of US$2.9 billion and difficult fiscal condition, Portugal presents
few opportunities for foreign defense companies. Participation in European joint operations and NATO's peacekeeping operations are expected to drive the country's military expenditure, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 0.90% over the forecast period. Portuguese defense imports are expected to remain low over the forecast period due to the country's focus on reducing the public debt. However, defense exports are estimated to grow over the forecast period as the demand from countries such as Bulgaria and Romania is increasing. The Portuguese government is planning to invite foreign defense companies to partner with domestic companies in scientific and technological innovation and research.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Defense expenditure in Portugal is primarily driven by peacekeeping operations and joint operations with the police force for the country's internal security. Portugal is a member of international organizations such as the EU and the UN, and is a founding member of NATO. As a part of these organizations, Portugal takes part in various peacekeeping missions. As a UN member, the country has contributed to 20 peacekeeping missions around the world and was the first western country to contribute to the UN police force. Portugal has been the major contributor, among western countries, to the UN police, and military contributor to UN operations.

Key Market Issues
The Portuguese government procures the majority of its defense equipment from foreign companies due to its relatively under-developed domestic defense industry. However, the government is also importing capabilities that its domestic industry is capable of performing itself, and has even been exporting. The import of this hardware poses a challenge for the domestic defense industry, which has been slowly developing through joint ventures and partnership contracts. For example, four of the Portuguese Air Force's aircraft (two C-130s and two P3 Orions) have been sent to the US for repair and maintenance, even though domestic company OGMA has the experience and capability to carry out the project, and has been performing repair and maintenance work for the military aircraft of France and Belgium. The outsourcing of this work is a concern for the domestic defense industry.
