We expect the South African defence budget to reach USD3.6bn in 2014. For the remainder of the forecast period, up to and including 2018, we expect the defence budget to rise, with the country spending on average USD5.3bn on defence annually. The final year of the forecast period (2018) will see defence spending reach USD6.8bn.

Between 2001 and 2011, the SANDF has comprised an average of 68,400 personnel. The numerical size of the armed forces has fluctuated widely between the 55,000 personnel they possessed in 2004 to the personnel strength of 103,000 recorded in 2006. We have given South Africa an overall security risk rating of 75 for Q414. We believe that the country has a very low risk of becoming involved in a major international conflict. Secondly, the country is considered very unlikely to experience a major terrorist attack. However, the same cannot be said regarding crime with the country maintaining a significantly high crime rate.
