Key Highlights

Sri Lankan defense expenditure, estimated at US$1.5 billion during 2011, grew at a CAGR of 17.37% during the review period. During the forecast period, it is expected to record a CARC of -0.46% and remain at US$1.5 billion by 2015. Over the next five years the country's defense expenditure is expected to be driven by factors such as post war rehabilitation, a tense relationship with India and a persistent threat from separatists.

During the review period, the country allocated an average of 3.3% of GDP (gross domestic product) to defense expenditure. However, as a percentage of GDP the country's military spending is projected to decline to an average of 2.1% during the forecast period, largely due to the country's economic growth outpacing defense expenditure growth over the next five years.

The majority of the Sri Lankan defense budget is allocated to revenue expenditure, due to the country's large troop size. During the review period, the country allocated an average of 86% of its total defense budget to revenue expenses, while an average of 14% of the defense budget was spent on the procurement and modernization of equipment. With the country planning to increase troop size, the share of revenue expenditure in the overall defense budget is expected to increase to an average of 95% during the forecast period. Although the country is not expected to embark on a defense modernization strategy, market opportunities will exist for air defense systems as Sri Lanka aims to enhance its air defense capabilities.

The country's homeland security expenditure is estimated to be US$0.4 billion in 2011. Anticipated to record a CARC of -0.17% during the forecast period, the nation's homeland security expenditure is expected to be driven by internal security threats.
