BMI View: 2014 has witnessed defence policy changes which carry significant implications from the national defence sector, and Japan's role in regional and international security. Notable, constitutional changes have edged Japan towards military normalisation, paving the way for a more active role in regional security. Meanwhile, the domestic defence industry is now permitted to export technology and is being actively encouraged to engage in international joint ventures, yielding fresh opportunities for the international defence market. In line with this increasingly assertive military policy, the Ministry of Defence has requested a record 3.5% budget increase, which will be used to fund major new acquisitions in maritime and air security. After a decade of cuts to defence expenditure, Japan is seeking a third increase in its annual defence budget.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has requested a JPY5.05tn (USD48.7bn) budget for FY2015, starting April next year. This represents a record 3.5% y-o-y budget increase, which will be used to finance the purchase of 20 maritime patrol aircraft, six stealth fighters, five tilt-rotator aircraft, and three unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which is part of a wider five-year spending plan. Japan will build a Dynamic Joint Defence Force, which emphasises both soft and hard aspects of readiness, sustainability, resiliency and connectivity, reinforced by advanced technology and capability.
