Argentina

La fel ca şi alte state din America Latină, Argentina îşi măreşte bugetul militar cu paşi siguri. Dacă în anul 2010 bugetul apărării a fost de 2,6 miliarde de dolari, pentru anul 2015 se  preconizează suma de 5,5 miliarde de dolari.

Dacă într-o primă fază au crescut salariile militarilor, Argentina urmăreşte concretizarea unor planuri de modernizare, participarea în cadrul unor misiuni de menţinere a păcii, dar şi… disputa cu Marea Britanie pe tradiţionala temă – suveranitatea insulelor Malvine.

The Argentine government has announced plans to increase defense expenditure, which stood at 0.7% of GDP in 2010, to 1.5% of GDP over an unspecified period. It is estimated that by 2015 the defense budget will stand at 1.3% of GDP. Capital expenditure accounted for an average of 3.6% of the defense budget during the review period. However, modernization plans will increase capital expenditure to an average of 6.2% of the defense budget during the forecast period.

The Argentine army receives the highest allocation of the total defense budget, an average of 40.5% over the review period which is expected to increase to an average of 41.1% during the forecast period. The budget allocated to the air force is expected to marginally decline from an average of 25.3% of the total defense budget during the review period to an average of 24.1% during the forecast period. Allocation for naval forces is expected to increase from an average of 25.3% of the total defense budget during the review period to an average of 25.5% during the forecast period. The remaining budget is allocated to the Ministry of Defense and joint forces responsible for defense administration, planning, execution and development of the domestic defense industry.

This report offers insights into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to gain a market share in the Argentine defense industry.
