Kuwait Defence And Security Report Q2 2013

NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Kuwait Defence and Security Report Q2 2013

Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates

The report examines the trends occurring in the country's current and future defence procurement, and theorder of battle across its armed forces. The intention is to provide a clear and concise discussion of theseissues. The report's general conclusion is that Kuwait remains vulnerable to regional instability, both in theform of the civil war in Syria, and also the possible consequences of a United States/Israeli attack on Iran.The ramifications of the Arab Spring also continue to have an impact on Kuwaiti politics. Despite beingrelatively democratic by regional standards, Kuwait has not been unaffected by the regional wave ofpolitical reforms. Large-scale protests have continued in Kuwait throughout 2012, and the failure of theEmir to overturn the country's electoral law has further emboldened the opposition. The country's prodemocracyactivists want Kuwait to become a constitutional monarchy, with a government no longerdominated by the ruling family. The Emir is opposed to such a transition; however, he cannot overreach inhis attempts to hold onto political power for fear of provoking even wider protests that could potentiallylead to his downfall. He must decide soon whether to call new elections, even though the likely outcomewill be a parliament dominated by the pro-democracy opposition.BMI Industry View 7SWOT 8Kuwait Defence SWOT 8Kuwait Security SWOT 9Political 12Economic 13Business Environment 14Industry Forecast 16Defence Trade 16Table: Kuwait's Defence Exports, 2010-2017 (US$mn) 16Table: Kuwait's Defence Imports, 2010-2017 (mn) 16Table: Kuwait's Defence Trade Balance, 2010-2017 (mn) 17Defence Expenditure 18Table: Kuwait's Government Defence Expenditure, 2010-2017 18Table: Kuwait's Defence Expenditure Scenario - Changing % Of GDP, 2010-2017 (mn) 19Armed Forces 20Table: Kuwait's Armed Forces, 2002-2008 ('000 personnel, unless otherwise stated) 20Table: Kuwait's Available Manpower For Military Services, 2010-2017 (aged 16-49, unless otherwise stated) 20Macroeconomic Forecasts 21Macroeconomic Forecast 21Table: Kuwait - Economic Activity 27Industry Risk Reward Ratings 28Security Risk Analysis 28Table: Middle East And Africa Defence & Security Ratings 29Table: Middle East And Africa State Vulnerability To Terrorism Index 29Market Overview 31Kuwait Market Overview 31Arms Trade Overview 31Armed Forces and Government Spending 31Industry Trends and Developments 35Armed Forces 36Industry Trends And Developments 40Political Outlook 40Table: Kuwait - Political Overview 44Security Overview 49External Security 49Internal Security 52Scenario Analysis 56External Security 56Internal Security 59Regional Overview 64Middle East and Africa Security Overview 64Global Industry Overview 84Global Political Outlook 84Eurozone 84Iran War Risks Rising In 2013 85Syrian Conflict To Continue, Post-Assad 86Caucasus At Risk Of Armenia-Azerbaijan War 86Korean Peninsula Facing Mixed Outlook 87Asia's Maritime Island Disputes 87Table: Election Timetable, 2013 88Methodology 92How We Generate Our Industry Forecasts 92Defence Industry 93Sources 93
