Algerian Defense Industry Research Report to 2017

The Algerian defense industry, which valued US$9.4 billion in 2012, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period (2013-18) and value US$13.6 billion by 2017. Recent terrorist attacks in the country have necessitated the increased spending on counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency efforts. Another factor driving the country’s defense spending is Algeria’s involvement in an arms race with neighboring countries such as Morocco, Libya, and Tunisia, which is further fuelled by Russia’s eagerness to supply weapons to these countries. An arms race between countries often sparks reactive defense procurements and this is a trend that has been seen in many North African defense procurements over the last decade. For example, Morocco’s purchase of 24 F-16 Block fighter jets from Lockheed Martin in 2008 was in response to Algeria’s previous US$8 billion military and technical cooperation agreement with Russia, US$1.3 billion of which was allotted for the purchase of 29 MiG-29SMT fighters and six MiG-29UB fighters. As North African countries look to establish military superiority in the region, these types of procurements are expected to continue during the forecast period.

Algeria has borne the brunt of sustained terror attacks for many years and the recent attack on the In Amenas gas facility, that left 37 workers dead, has further strengthened the government’s resolve to enhance its defense capabilities. The Defense Ministry’s recent takeover of the Municipal Guard which was previously under the control of the Ministry of Interior has also warranted large scale defense procurements, with a prime motive to counter terror.

Over the forecast period Algeria is expected to make procurements in areas such as C4ISR systems, drones for attack-grade unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), surveillance equipment for ground monitoring, submarines, amphibious ships, naval dockyard infrastructure, fighter jets and associated support systems, armored vehicles, and attack helicopters.

Historically, Russian defense firms have entered the Algerian defense industry through government initiated foreign military sales. However, the forming of various joint ventures with other countries has been witnessed in recent years in an effort to develop Algeria’s domestic manufacturing industry. Furthermore, Algeria promotes the joint development of defense systems, which has resulted in a number of JVs with Taiwanese, Russian, French, and Serbian companies in areas such as armored vehicles, unmanned aircraft, military healthcare, and counter-terrorism equipment.

Algeria’s sudden rise as a major military force in Africa can be attributed to its burgeoning economy and a desire to establish its military superiority in the region. Moreover, an arms race with its neighbors such as Morocco, Libya, and Tunisia is further fuelling relatively large scale defense procurements. Algeria’s domestic defense manufacturing, though developing through joint ventures with other countries, is currently not capable of fulfilling most of the country’s military requirements and this has led to an increase in weapons imports. Historically, Algeria has imported weapons and

related systems primarily from Russia but this trend is gradually changing as it opens its market to other countries, making way for healthy competition in the country’s robust defense market. Even though Russia still accounts for the majority of Algerian defense imports, the value has shown a steady decrease during the period 2007-2011. Conversely, countries such as Ukraine, Italy and the US, which had no exports to Algeria in 2007, have increased their share significantly during the same period. One of the most important developments expected to have a strong impact on the Algerian defense industry is the expected supply of defense equipment worth over US$13 billion by Germany over the next 10 years. Algeria’s weapons exports are negligible and this is also expected to be the case over the forecast period (2013-2017).
