|Published: August 12, 2019||Content info: 303 Pages||
Singapore's defense expenditure is expected to register a CAGR of 3.16% during the forecast period to reach US$13.2 billion in 2024. Despite its small land area and population, Singapore's economic importance and military capability rank it among Southeast Asia's regional powers.
Singapore's defense budget is valued at US$11.4 billion in 2019 and registered a CAGR of 4.49% during the historic period. Threats posed by terrorist organizations such as the Al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) and other regional terrorist groups, the acquisition of military equipment, overseas training of its armed forces, and participation in the international peace-building missions and disaster relief operations have mainly driven the budget increases in the historic period. The country plans to increase its defense expenditure with significant and steady investment in defense procurements according to defense minister Ng Eng Hen in March, 2019.
Capital expenditure is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.54%, due to the country's procurement plans over the forecast period, which is expected to increase from US$425.1 million in 2020 to US$488.6 million in 2024. Large scale opportunities remain in areas such as armored vehicles, multi role helicopters, utility helicopters, submarines, missile defense systems and naval auxiliary vessels. Singapore's homeland security is expected to witness robust investment due to a number of measures planned by the government, such as the procurement of modern equipment for border surveillance, as there is need to protect the borders from illegal trafficking of goods and people and threats from terrorist organizations.
In addition to these measures, the government is also focusing on containing the threats of human trafficking and cybercrime and countering the internal threats posed by these issues, in addition to developing improved identification systems for its citizens. Singapore's homeland security (HLS) expenditure stands at US$5.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach US$6.6 billion in 2024, registering a CAGR of 5.16% over 2020-2024.
Singapore encourages foreign investments in the defense sector and prefers technology transfers without formal offsets. The Singaporean Defense Ministry insists on a technology transfer agreement as part of all equipment procurement deals and insists on local support activities and joint programmes that have the same objective as offsets. Singapore has witnessed large scale imports of foreign military equipment during 2014-2018 due to the ongoing arms modernization programme. Traditionally, the US has been the largest supplier of military equipment and platforms to Singapore accounting for 46.2% of total arms imports. The other significant arms suppliers were France, Spain, Israel, the Netherlands, the UK, Italy, Switzerland, and South Africa.
