Product Synopsis
This report is the result of SDI’s extensive market and company research covering the Algerian defense industry, and provides detailed analysis of both historic and forecast defense industry values including key growth stimulators, analysis of the leading companies in the industry, and key news.
Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
The Future of the Algerian Defense Industry – Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2017 offers the reader an insight into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to gain a market share in the Algerian defense industry.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Despite its challenges, Algeria remains one of Africa’s most attractive defense markets, with a defense spending capability that is expected to increase in the forecast period primarily owing to increased energy exports and an arms race in the North African region. The country’s defense spending, which increased at a significant CAGR of 21.4% during the review period, is expected to stabilize during the forecast period, growing at a steady CAGR of 6.2% with the main aim of replacing most of its outdated military equipment. Furthermore, the opening up of Algeria’s market to suppliers other than those in Russia is expected to make it an exciting proposition for foreign companies looking to enter the market either through direct government-to-government deals or by establishing joint ventures and partnerships. During the forecast period, the Algerian government is expected to spend the majority of its capital expenditure on modernizing its army, navy and air force.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency initiatives, and an urgent need to modernize outdated defense equipment are expected to drive Algeria’s defense expenditure. Algeria has witnessed growing instances of terrorism from Al-Qaeda and other Islamic militant organizations in the past. The recent attack on the In Amenas gas facility left 37 foreign workers dead and many more injured. This is seen as an attempt by Al-Qaeda affiliates and other jihadist outfits to render parts of Northern and Western Africa uninhabitable for westerners and create a political and economic impact on the region. Another factor driving Algeria’s defense procurements is the neglect the industry faced for many years. Historically, South Africa was the only major defense spender in the African region but in recent years, Algeria has assumed top position. The government has embarked on an intense modernization drive that is expected to benefit the army, navy, and air force.

Key Market Issues
Algeria is prone to high levels of corruption in virtually all sectors of business activity. In December 2012 Sapiem, Europe's biggest oil services group came under investigation for alleged corruption in Algeria and faced massive fines for its dealings in the country. The Algerian defense industry is also marred by a lack of transparency in awarding defense contracts. While procurement is supposedly conducted as open competition, in reality personal relations and the country from which the supplier is from are considered to be influential in decision making. The Algerian government does not publicly announce its future procurement plans. All defense tenders are closed and are sent only to a few specific companies.
Over the last decade, Algeria has become an important country in the global defense market due to many factors one of which is its strategic location as a transit point from North Africa to Europe. Even though European contractors have an advantage in securing contracts due to legacy relationships and shared national requirements, the sheer lack of transparency makes it difficult for any supplier to strategically target the Algerian market. The process of weapons acquisitions poses a challenge to both the political and technical systems in Algeria. Moreover, until now, the government has not defined a formal offset policy which makes it increasingly difficult to develop the country’s indigenous manufacturing capabilities.
Key Highlights
Algeria’s defense industry is currently undergoing a phase of rapid and radical modernization. With over US$200 billion in foreign exchange reserves and burgeoning energy exports, the country is now the 9th largest importer of weapons globally. Its domination of the African defense imports market is highlighted by the fact that during 2006-2010, Algeria accounted for 46% of total weapons imports into Africa. For 2013, Algeria has budgeted US$10.3 billion for defense spending out of which a significant amount is expected to be spent on procuring new equipment for its army, navy, and air force.  Algeria has recently fallen victim to many instances of terrorism.
