During the period, the perceived threat of nuclear attacks from neighbor North Korea is anticipated to drive growth in defense expenditure, despite South Korea’s military superiority.

During the review period, South Korea maintained a defense expenditure of 2.6% of its gross domestic product (GDP), which is expected to continue during the forecast period.
