Kenya Defense Industry Analyzed & Forecast by SDI in New Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

29 Jan 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – After the political turmoil during 2007-2008, the Kenyan government placed greater focus on the modernization of the country’s armed forces in order to make them well-equipped to be able to counter foreign and domestic terrorist attacks. During 2009-2013, Kenya apportioned around 2.5% (around USD 4.3 billion) of the country’s GDP for its defense purposes.

During 2014-2018, the Kenyan defense budget is poised to stand at USD 5.5 billion cumulatively. In 2014, per-capita defense spending was estimated at nearly USD 20.6; in 2018, it is expected to amount to USD 26.7. The capital expenditure budget is likely to record a CAGR of just over 11.9% through 2018, increasing form USD 149.2 million in 2014 to USD 234.1 million in 2018. The Kenyan homeland security budget is predicted to witness robust growth, driven primarily by the rising threats from gun and drug smuggling, and human trafficking.
