Sudanese Defence & Security Sector Analysed by BMI RESEARCH in Comprehensive Report Available at

06 Aug 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Sudan is Africa’s 3rd-largest arms manufacturer, able to produce a set of various military products, specifically in the land industry segment. However, the domestic defence industrial base is still underdeveloped, and R&D activities are limited. In this regard, the country is expected to keep on relying on imports for procurement of more technologically sophisticated equipment through to 2019. There is a constant menace of war with South Sudan, and also the threats posed by the conflict in the Darfur region and insurgency in the states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile are projected to drive growth in military expenditure in the oncoming years; however, sanctions placed against the government keep on preventing most foreign firms from exporting to Sudan.

In 2015, Sudan’s defence budget is forecast to amount to USD 3.1 billion, which represents a hike of 16.5% and makes up 4.3% of total GDP. Enabling this budget expansion is a projected 3.5% growth in the national economy this year, due to easing inflationary pressures, increased exchange rate stability and declining fuel costs, and also robust growth in farm and gold production.

New research study “Sudan Defence and Security Report 2015” created by BMI RESEARCH (BMI) presents true, in-depth insights into the Sudanese defence and security universe. It describes the political and economic situation in the country, offers a SWOT analysis of the market, and projects the future direction of the industry till 2019. The study offers defence expenditure data, sheds light on the country’s armed forces, covers defence imports and exports dynamics, as well as provides macroeconomic forecasts for the country. It analyses the national defence and security market space, covering a range of challenges and threats to Sudan’s security and stability; provides insights into the defence agreements and international partnerships. The research publication gives a granular economic analysis covering industry risk/reward index in tandem with the country’s security risk index. It scrutinises the competitive scenario and offers profiles of the dominant market players. The report also canvasses the defence and security industry at regional and global levels.
