report has been added to's

On-going modernization and procurement programs of the armed forces, the
Falkland Islands territorial dispute with the UK, and participation in
peacekeeping missions drove Argentine defense expenditure during
2014-2018. With this trend expected to continue over the forecast
period, the country is projected to cumulatively spend US$18 billion
over 2019-2023. As a percentage of GDP, the country's defense
expenditure is expected to average 0.5% over the forecast period,
compared to 0.4% recorded in the historic period.

Argentina's defense capital expenditure recorded a relatively flat CAGR
of 1.59% during 2014-2018. However, the capital expenditure is projected
to grow at a CAGR of 6.97% over the forecast period, primarily due to
the procurement of advanced defense equipment and the focus on
increasing indigenous defense manufacturing capabilities. Moreover,
Argentina is focusing on the development of its domestic defense
industrial base in order to reduce its dependency on foreign suppliers
and, is therefore engaging in joint production projects and
collaborations with foreign equipment manufacturers.

Key opportunities for equipment suppliers are expected in sectors such
as submarines, multi-role aircraft, and transport aircraft. Revenue
expenditure is also projected to increase over the forecast period, at a
CAGR of 9.47%, which will be directed towards additional recruitment,
training, and development programs for military personnel.

The 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
