South Africa’s Defense Budget Analysis (FY 2020), Competitive Landscape and Forecasts


South Africa’s Defense Budget Analysis (FY 2020), Competitive Landscape and Forecasts report provides the market size forecast and the projected growth rate for the next five years. The report covers industry analysis including the key market drivers, emerging technology trends, and major challenges faced by market participants. It also offers insights regarding key factors and government programs that are expected to influence the demand for military platforms over the forecast period.

South Africa’s defense budget for FY 2020 is set at US$3.3 bn, slightly decreased from the previous year of US$3.4 bn. While the South African defense budget is predicted to grow in absolute terms, the defense budget has seen a relative decrease in relation to GDP share. This trend is likely to continue in a struggling economic landscape as spending on defense has been constrained due to a variety of factors such as the economic downturn in South Africa, the downgrade of the country to sovereign ‘junk status’ by Moody’s in March FY 2020, and allegations of corruption within the ANC government.

South Africa has also been one of the hardest-hit countries by the COVID-19 pandemic, with over half a million cases recorded adding to the country’s economic woes. This will affect defense spending in the FY 2021 period, with no increase to the defense budget predicted.

This report offers detailed analysis of South Africa's defense market with market size forecasts covering the next five years. This report will also analyze factors that influence demand for the industry, key market trends, and challenges faced by industry participants.
