DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2019--The “Future of the Ukrainian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report provides readers with detailed analysis of both historic and forecast defense industry values, factors influencing demand, the challenges faced by industry participants, analysis of industry leading companies, and key news.

Driven by the need to bridge the critical capability gap and restructure its armed forces, Ukraine has embarked upon a major defense modernization initiative and is attempting to reform the fighting capability of its armed forces along the western model of network centric maneuver warfare.

The Ukrainian government is also attempting to reorganize the country’s armed forces and bring it up to NATO standards, and although the progress to this end has been extremely slow, the country is nevertheless expected to steadily transform its doctrine from the Soviet model to western NATO standards.

The country allocated US$3.2 billion for defense, and the allocations for national defense are likely to increase form US$3.7 billion in 2019 to US$7.6 billion in 2023, reflecting a CAGR of 19.53%. With one of the highest annual defense expenditure growth rates in the world, Ukraine is an attractive defense market.

Between 2014 and 2018, the country’s capital expenditure allocation stood at an average of 19% of the total defense budget, and is expected to slightly decline to 18.1% over the forecast period. Overall, Ukraine is projected to spend a total of US$5.1 billion on the acquisition of military hardware between 2019 and 2023. The country is likely to allocate cumulative expenditure of US$27.7 billion over the forecast period.

Over the forecast period, Ukraine is expected to invest in modernizing its anti-aircraft warfare capabilities and is likely to invest in the acquisition of advanced air-defense systems. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are also likely to invest heavily in procuring advanced defense technologies such as Autonomous Vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles; communication and electronic warfare equipment, trainer helicopters and aircraft, and engineering vehicles like trenchers, excavators, and armored recovery vehicles.
