Research and Markets: The Swedish Defense Sector: Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies, Analyses and Forecasts to 2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of iCD Research's new report "The Swedish Defense Sector Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies, Analyses and Forecasts to 2015" to their offering.

Defense expenditure of Sweden, estimated to be US$5.3 billion during 2010, registered a CARC of -1.93% during the review period. During the forecast period, the defense expenditure of the country is expected to grow at a CAGR of 0.36% to reach US$5.4 billion by 2015. Over the next five years, the country's defense expenditure will be influenced largely due factors such as a strained relationship with Russia, acquisition of new defense systems and the country's participation in international peacekeeping missions.

The country spent an average of 1.4% of its GDP towards defense expenditure during the review period. However, military spending as a percentage of GDP is expected to come down to an average of 1.1% during the forecast period as the annual GDP growth rate is higher than the defense budget growth rate of the country.

An average of 47% of the total budget was earmarked for capital expenditure during 2004-08, but this share came down to 44% in 2009 due to a reduction in the purchase of defense equipment. During the forecast period, however, capital expenditure is expected to increase to an average of 45% of the total defense expenditure due to a reduction in the total troop size of the armed forces resulting in a lesser revenue expenditure need.
