Yemeni Defense Industry Relies on Imports, According to SDI Report Available at

15 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Defense expenditure in Yemen registered certain growth over the recent years. For instance, it demonstrated a growth rate of approximately 2.7 percent over the period 2012-2016: it grew from USD 1.6 billion in 2012 to more than USD 1.78 billion in 2016.

The expenditure is set to continue showing growth over the period 2017-2021, though at a lower rate of 1.6 percent. It is expected to reach USD 1.9 billion in 2021. Homeland security budget is likely to experience an increase in the upcoming years, as well.

Some of major forces driving the defense marketplace in Yemen comprise: military units’ restructuring, extremism infiltration, presence of different groups (e.g. drug traffickers), and more.

At present, Russia and Belarus rule this marketplace since the country is heavily dependent on imports, and this together with a lack of skilled labor force represents a key challenge to the local marketplace.
