Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

Future of the Israeli 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 market share in the Israeli defense industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

In 2012, the Israeli defense market valued US$13.10 billion, which represented
the third largest military expenditure in the Middle East. During the review
period, Israeli defense expenditure declined at a CAGR of -0.94% but is
expected to record growth at a CAGR of 2.97% during the forecast period. The
growth can be partially attributed to the US$15.5 billion of military aid from
the US scheduled between 2013 and 2017; moreover, the continued security
threats from Iran, Syria, and other neighboring Arab countries is forecast to
result in Israel spending US$71.3 billion on defense during the forecast
period.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

The security threats posed by Iran and Syria, hostility from neighboring
countries, and Israel's inadequate troop size as a result of the country's
small population, are expected to drive the country's defense expenditure
during the forecast period. During the same period, the continued military aid
of US$3.1 billion per year from the US will continue to increase the spending
power of the country. Between 2013 and 2017, Israel is expected to accelerate
its defense procurement plans to prepare for potential confrontations with
Iran or Syria.

Key Market Issues

The Israeli government has introduced mandatory offsets for all defense
transactions exceeding US$5 million. As Israel is intent on forging long-term
relations between domestic firms and foreign investors, no penalties or clause
for liquidated damages are imposed on defaulters. Indeed, one of the most
important principles underlying the offset policies is that the activities
pursued by domestic and foreign firms should be beneficial to both parties.

The military aid Israel has received from the US through
government-to-government agreements has significantly supported the
development ofthe Israeli defense industry, and as a result, a significant
portion of the equipment used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is of US
origin, which provides US defense manufacturers with opportunities to enter
the Israeli defense industry. For example, The Boeing Company, Bell Textron,
Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, and Hughes are all
US defense firms that have entered the Israeli defense market through
extensive military sales programs. Israel also stocks US military hardware
such as armored vehicles and artillery shells, which can be used in the case
of an emergency.

In the last fifty years, Israel has developed a largely self-sufficient
domestic defense industry, which satisfies the majority of its defense
requirements; however, the nation continues to rely on external technologies
to fulfill its more advanced requirements, such as aircraft, air defense
systems, and submarines. As a result, the majority of foreign OEMs keen to
enter the Israeli defense industry form an alliance with Israeli defense firms
to jointly develop and market defense equipment in the international market,
which is also beneficial to foreign companies as many are able to capitalize
on Israeli expertise in unmanned aerial vehicles, missile defense systems, and
defense electronics. The partnership between General Dynamics and Aeronautics
Defense Systems, formed in 2004, is an example of market entry through such an
alliance; the two companies established a joint venture to develop and
manufacture defense and homeland security products, unmanned multi-application
systems (UMAS) in particular. These products are sold in the US and other
international defense markets.

Although the Israeli economy encourages foreign investment in other
industries, investment into its defense sector continues to be prohibited;
Israeli government officials cite national security as the reason for this
prohibition.

Key Highlights

The security threats posed by Iran and Syria, hostility from neighboring
countries, and Israel's inadequate troop size as a result of the country's
small population are expected to drive the country's defense expenditure
during the forecast period. During the same period, the military aid of US$3.1
billion per year from the US will continue to increase the spending power of
the country. Between 2013 and 2017, Israel is expected to accelerate its
defense procurement plans to prepare for potential confrontations with Iran or
Syria. Iran's refusal to accept Israel as an independent country, combined
with its potential nuclear capabilities and acquisition of long-range
missiles, poses a serious security risk to Israel. Of immediate threat to
Israel's security is Iran's quest for nuclear power. Moreover, Israel shares
its border with four hostile nations: Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and Jordan.

Israel exports a wide range of defense products including ammunition, defense
electronics, small arms, artillery, armored vehicles, and sophisticated land
and air defense systems. During 2007-2011, sensors, armored vehicles, and
missiles were the three most exported defense goods, with market shares of
32%, 22.8%, and 22.8% respectively. During the forecast period, the global
demand for UAVs is expected to rise in order to increase surveillance in an
effort to prevent terrorist activities and the accumulation of weapons of mass
destruction. To meet the global demand for UAVs, Israel has increased its
investment in the research and development of unmanned platforms.

During the forecast period, the Israeli homeland security budget is expected
to increase considerably due to the high level of threats posed by Islamic
terrorist organizations and other geopolitical factors. Due to its turbulent
relationship with the Palestinian region, Israel is at risk of attack from
terrorist groups such as Hamas, Palestine Islamic Jihad, Kahane Chai (KACH),
the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Palestine Liberation
Front (PLF), and Al Qaida. In 2012, it was reported by Israel Security Agency
that a total of 1,351 terrorist incidents took place in Israel, and the
increasing number of terrorist activities has further compelled the nation to
enhance its homeland security. Between 2005 and 2008, illegal immigration into
Israel rose by almost 1000%, with approximately 7,500 people known to have
infiltrated the country via its southern border in 2008 alone. As the majority
of these immigrants work as illegal laborers within the country, with little
access to healthcare or permanent housing, and no access to welfare, it has
been reported that many are forced to make a living from an underground
economy.
