Ukrainian Defense Market - Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2024

Ukraine’s total defense expenditure is anticipated to be US$34 billion cumulatively over the forecast period.As a part of the ongoing military reforms, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense plans to restructure and reform the fighting capability of its armed forces to the western model of network centric maneuver warfare by 2020.

The country’s government is also attempting to reorganize the country’s armed forces and bring it up to NATO standards. Although progress has been sluggish, the country is steadily transforming its military strategy and operational command and control from the Soviet model to modern western NATO standards.

Ukraine is still faced with a festering, well-funded and equipped insurgency movement within the country that threatens to transform into a long drawn, high attrition battle. The swift capitulation of Ukrainian armed forces during the battle of Crimea and the subsequent losses suffered during the battle in Shakhtarsk Raion, Battle of Horlivka, and Battle of Debaltseve have highlighted the military deficiencies of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, further reinforced by Ukraine’s continued inability to dislodge the insurgents from the Donbass region.

In 2019, the country allocated US$3.8 billion for defense and its allocations for national defense are expected to increase form US$4.5 billion in 2020 to US$7.1 billion in 2024, reflecting a CAGR of 12.51%. The country is anticipated to allocate cumulative expenditure of US$34 billion over the forecast period. Driven by the need to contain terrorism, narcotics trafficking and even human trafficking, the Ukrainian government is anticipated to significantly invest in overhauling the country’s moribund internal security apparatus. Ukrainian homeland security (HLS) expenditure increased from US$1.7 billion in 2015 to US$3.1 billion in 2019, reflecting a CAGR of 15.89% during 2015–2019. Ukrainian homeland security expenditure is expected to increase from US$3.6 billion in 2020 to US$6.8 billion by 2024, reflecting a CAGR of 17.18% over the forecast period.

Ukraine, having inherited a vast defense manufacturing complex from the erstwhile Soviet Union, has access to a relatively competent and self-reliant defense industry base which is capable of meeting most of the country’s basic defense requirements.China accounted for 27% of Ukraine’s exports and was the single largest customer during 2014–2018.

Although Ukraine’s relations with Russia have deteriorated, Russia still accounted for the second highest share of Ukrainian defense exports by value at 23.2%.

Ever since its independence in 1991, the Ukrainian defense industry has suffered from perpetual underfunding, which has significantly impacted its efficiency. The Ukrainian defense budget for 2019, which is valued at US$3.7 billion, earmarked almost 83.6% of the defense budget for revenue expenses, setting aside just US$621.4 million for capital expenditure, compelling the Ukrainian MoD to adopt crowd funding strategies to fund military procurements. Since 2014, Ukrainians were reported to have donated an average of US$35,000 every day to crowd fund army acquisitions, which has enabled the country to proceed with the procurement of small reconnaissance UAV.
