Saudi Arabia faces a diverse range of domestic and regional security threats, and coupled with the country's position as a leading energy supplier worldwide, the Kingdom's defence capabilities carry added importance. Visiongain has calculated that in 2012, Saudi Arabian defence spending will total $50.83bn.
Whilst defence and security markets in Europe and the US contract due to pressure to reduce public spending, and cancellations and delays to defence programmes continue to curtail opportunities; Saudi Arabia's position at the heart of the Middle East has meant that defence spending continues to be a top government priority.
