Scope

- Saudi Arabia is one of the largest defense spenders in the world, behind the US, China, and Russia, with a military budget valued at US$56 billion in 2018. The country is the largest market in the Middle East due to its robust economic and financial position, backed by its oil exports. The rising tension with Iran, aggressive procurement strategies, and modernization programs, along with the need to strengthen its indigenous defense industry, are the main factors boosting the country’s military expenditure.
- On a cumulative basis, the country is expected to invest US$326.5 billion for defense purposes, of which US$146 billion is earmarked for capital expenditure to fund defense procurements. The government’s well-defined military modernization plans along with its efforts to supress Houthi insurgency in Yemen as well as its support for rebel factions within Syria, are expected to stimulate the expenditure over the next few years
- The MoD is expected to invest in physical security of vital assets, development of land based C4ISR cpaabilities and multi-role aircraft among others.
