DUBLIN--()--The "Future of the Kenyan Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Kenyan defense market, valued at around US$1.3 billion in 2018, is expected to see sustained growth over the forecast period to reach about US$1.6 billion by 2023.

Growing threats from terrorism, border conflicts with Somalia, human trafficking, arms smuggling and contributions to peacekeeping operations are expected to drive the country's military expenditure, registering a growth rate of just over 4% over the forecast period.

Over the forecast period, the average share of total CAPEX is expected to cross 35% from its historic-period average of about 34%. Defense equipment such as land-based C4ISR, physical security infrastructure, and IT-networking are expected to be in demand over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

  • With an armed force that is considered to be one of the most powerful in East Africa, Kenya has consistently procured a large amount of military hardware, including small arms, aircraft, artilleries and armored vehicles, which drove defense expenditure during the historic period.
