23 Jun 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Over the past few years, the expenditure of the defense industry in Sri Lanka posted growth of just under 4.1%, surging from USD 1.8 billion in 2011 to USD 2.1 billion in 2015. Driven by rehabilitation and demining efforts, re-emergence of terrorism, and the nation’s strained relationship with India, Sri Lanka’s defense industry is poised for robust growth moving forward, with a CAGR of 6.12%, with total costs of USD 10.7 billion expected to be spent through to 2018. By 2020-end, the country’s military expenditure is projected to grow to USD 2.9 billion, at a CAGR of 7.55% during the forecasted period. In addition, the post-LTTE Tamil movement, demonstrations and conflicts between Muslims and Buddhists, and marine safety will likely drive the country’s homeland defense spending. However, factors such as the country’s relatively small military budget as well as corruption within the defense procurement process could hinder the growth in the sector.

The Ministry of Defense is the Sri Lankan government ministry is anticipated to procure naval infrastructure and patrol vessels, fighter aircraft, and lift helicopters.
