Argentina, similar to other Latin American countries, is increasing its defense budget at a robust pace. The defense budget, which stood at US$2.6 billion in 2010, recorded a CAGR of 17.36% during the review period. The large growth in the defense budget was due to increased personnel salaries. The Argentine defense budget is expected to register a CAGR of 15.87% during the forecast period to reach US$5.5 billion by 2015.

Defense expenditure is primarily driven by modernization plans, participation in peacekeeping missions and a dispute with the UK regarding the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands. 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.
