Key Highlights
The effects of the European debt crisis and widening fiscal deficit pushed the Belgian government to lower its budget for the defense sector during 2010-2014. Belgian defense expenditure registered a negative CAGR of 0.31% between 2010 and 2014. Although the budget is projected to record annual decline in 2015 and 2016, an expected economic upturn in the second half of the decade will lead to an increase in the defense budget from 2017 onwards. Over the forecast period, the budget is expected to grow at a CAGR of 0.12% from US$3.54 billion in 2015 to US$3.56 billion in 2019. Primarily driven by the extension of the existing military modernization plans and commitment towards NATO, EU, and UN peacekeeping missions, the country's defense expenditure is expected to focus more on the procurement of equipment to augment its air defense capabilities, enhancing operational capabilities of the current fleet of naval vessels, and communications and surveillance systems over the period 2015-2019.
