Bangladesh Defense Market Analysed by SDI in Topical Report Published at

07 Jan 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Through to 2018, Bangladesh is forecast to invest USD 11.1 billion in its military forces, of which USD 2.7 billion is set to be allocated for military hardware, offering overseas OEMs limited opportunities to cater to the national defense industry. Still, the budget remains rather inadequate for the procurement of high-tech defense weaponry and equipment. In addition, Bangladesh is currently more focused on bringing in more prosperity and wealth for its population and developing its economic conditions in the oncoming years.

Underdeveloped defense capabilities alongside external and internal security threats make Bangladesh import military hardware. From 2014 to 2018, the country’s imports of arms equipment will increase, supported by the government’s ammunition modernisation plans put in action recently. Over the review period, China was the biggest supplier of military equipment to Bangladesh, whilst armoured vehicles accounted for the better half of imports. In the offing, the demand for aircraft is expected to remain high, while the import of air defense systems is likely to rise.
