Military Offsets Market Overview—DefinitionsThis market insight (MI) assesses the value of military offsets obligations of leading 20 markets.Military Offsets definition is very broad with varied interpretations from each stakeholder. In some countriesindustrial cooperation, industrial participation or some other terms are used instead of offsets. In general,military offsets is a compensation mechanism agreed between purchasing government and foreign supplier(s)of military related products or services. As a result of a defence deal, the foreign supplier(s) agree to conduct anumber of additional investments, projects in local economy, mainly in defence sector, to offset the costs ofweapon procurement up to 100.00 per cent or even more of the contract value. There are two main types of5military offsets direct and indirect.Direct offsets - compensation transactions that are directly linked to the initial weapon or servicescontract, mainly in form of: co-production, subcontracting, licensed production, training and technologytransfer.Indirect offsets - compensation transactions that are not directly linked to the initial weapon or servicescontract. The indirect offsets can take form of: purchases, investment, training, exporting assistance,and technology transfer. In framework of indirect offsets two further subdivisions can be distinguished:Military-related indirect offsetsNon military-related indirect offsetsSource: Frost & Sullivan analysis.

For large defencecontracts the military offset agreement will cover many compensation projects both direct and indirect.Among top the most popular military offsets transaction categories: are purchases, subcontracting, andtechnology transfer.From industry perspective indirect offsets is cheaper than direct one, so original equipmentmanufacturers (OEMs) are more willing to offer these type of projects in their compensation packages.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.

Forecast AssumptionsThis MI assesses the value of military offsets obligations of top 20 markets for the forecast period from2012 to 2021.Market Size: The market size is the representation of total military offsets transactions without takinginto account multipliers or intangible factors.Forecast Methodology: The forecast model takes into account different parameters: defence budgetassessment, national strategic intent, local industry evaluation, the announced and anticipated defencecontracts, as well as end-user capability requirements to address the defence capability gaps over the8contracts, as well as end-user capability requirements to address the defence capability gaps over theforecast period based on the information that was gathered mainly through secondary research. In theforecast process top 20 military offsets markets were selected out of leading 60 countries in terms ofmilitary procurement spending. Only countries with formal and informal offsets policies were taken intoaccount.The United States was excluded from the forecast scope due to limited amount of weapons procuredfrom abroad. However, it is important to note that ‘buy American’ rule is similar to the military offset-likepolicies. The clause requires that defence platforms procured by the Pentagon have to be builtsubstantially in-country. In this case ‘substantially’ means that at least 50.00 per cent of weaponcomponents have to be produced on American soil. This approach is against official rhetoric of the USgovernment which is against military offsets practices.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
The dynamically evolving nature of the defence sectorand growing end-users’ expectations have resulted ina significant demand for military offsets programs.Defence Procurement & Budget Limitations:As end-users modernise obsolete assets to maintain minimum battle readiness through modernisation andprocurement programs, the need for sustaining these advanced capabilities, both in context of aftermarketsupport and future supply drives the need for military offset market. Asia-Pacific and Middle East countrieshave implemented extensive re-armament programs that lead to increase of weapon import and relatedmilitary offsets’ projects. However, economic downturn led to consequent significant pressure on defenceprocurement projects particularly in Europe. In this case, budget cuts are forcing procurement programs tobe scaled back, postponed or cancelled, inadvertently impacting military offsets.Legislation & Policy:Military Offsets Trends9Industrial Policy:Military offsets programs are perceived by decision makers of developing countries as a stimulus of localeconomy industrial development including indigenous defence sector. However, countries aiming todevelop a competitive edge based on the technology transfer through military offset deals, need to ensurethat the local industry presents skills and capabilities that are necessary for proper absorption oftechnology transfer. This is a pre-requisite to build competitive technological competence.Legislation & Policy:The offsets legislative and political environment is complex, though evolving fast. The European Unionrecently implemented regulations which significantly narrow military offsets’ requirements among the EUmember states, which cause a decrease of the military offsets market in the EU or cover it under offsets-like practice. On the other hand, offsets markets in other regions / countries straiten their legislations toenforce implementation of offsets obligations in line with signed military offsets agreements.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.

Military Offsets Market Forecast by Country DiscussionResearch indicates that Saudi Arabia will generate the largest cumulative value of military offsetobligation at $62.63 billion. This is a direct consequence of defence procurement projects such as F-15SAand Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircrafts, A330 MRTT refuelling aircraft, BAE Hawk advanced jettrainers, Leopard 2A7+ main battle tanks and Piranha armoured personnel carriers, amongst others.Similar to the Saudi’s though on a somewhat modest scale, United Arab Emirates is projected to havecumulative offset market estimated at $31.40 billion during the forecast period.The growth of the military offsets market in Asia-Pacific region is fuelled by regional arms race betweenChina and their neighbours, susceptible to occasional escalation in context of the unstable situation onthe Korean peninsula. In this region the cumulative offsets markets in India, South Korea and Taiwan areestimated at $50.24, $32.86 and $11.82 billion respectively.19In Europe, due to severe austerity measures that directly impact defence procurement programs, mostcountries will experience limited or even negative CAGR of military offsets market. For instance, bothGreece and Italy will register negative offsets market growth of circa one per cent. Nonetheless, Poland isprojected to register high growth in offsets investments due to implementation of notable defencemodernisation programs such as: air and missile defense system, multi-role helicopters and the advancedjet trainer. However, as a result of implementation of the EU regulations, which significantly narrow themilitary offsets practice among the members states, it is expected that Polish military offsets requirementswill be at least partially covered under indigenisation practice.Research indicated growth in military offsets market in Latin America, specifically in Brazil. Despitegrowing power of Brazil on the international scene, their armed forces have to struggle with belt-tighteningmeasures and recurring indecisiveness. For example, the F-X2 jet fighter program that was recentlypostponed the fifth time in a row. Despite, it is expected that Brazilian market will generate $40.80 billionof military offsets obligations across Air, Land and Naval programs. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.

Military Offsets Market Attractiveness Map DiscussionSaudi Arabia presents the biggest military offsets market during the forecast period. However, it is worthnoting that the biggest defence OEMs from the US, UK, Germany and France are already present on themarket with extensive experience in terms of Saudi’s military offsets deals. Therefore, making it somewhatchallenging to break into this market.The OEMs that are interested in the second largest military offset market should pay a particular attention torevised Indian’s Defence Offset Guidelines introducing the Defence Offset Monitoring Wing as an institutionto monitor the military offsets obligation fulfillment. The positive aspect of revised requirements is expandinga list of Indian Offset Partners that now also contains governmental institutions and R&D centers.Additionally, multipliers were introduced to incentivise military offsets investment in two areas such as Smalland Medium Enterprises and technology transfer to Defence Research and Development Organisation.22On the Latin American continent, it is also expected that Colombia generates substantial offsets market. Inthe past, the country received significant military aid from the US in framework of ‘War on Drugs’ policy.However, this program has been significantly reduced by the Obama administration. With further reductionof US defence aid support, it is highly probable that Colombia will look to source more of its defenceequipment needs from its neighbors, as is evident from its participation in the the KC-390 program. In thiscontext, offsets is seen as an instrument which will help to partially compensate decreasing US aid.Colombian offsets is concentrated on self-sufficiency in terms of operation and maintenance of procuredweapon systems.According to Frost & Sullivan, Indonesia will experience the highest CAGR military offsets market growth at7.5 per cent with a value of the military offsets obligation of $10.65 billion for the period 2012-2021. This is adirect consequence of expected implementation of procurement programs that are in line with country’s“Minimum Essential Forces” strategy. The goal is to upgrade Indonesian defence platforms in line with themodernised / ing weapons systems of neighboring countries. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
Key Military Offsets Issues—Legal AspectsAny compensation procedures are prohibited in light of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), however,article XXIII of Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) allows countries to “taking any action ornot disclosing any information which it considers necessary for the protection of its essential securityinterests relating to the procurement of arms, ammunition or war materials, or to procurementindispensable for national security or for national defence purposes.” This clause is overused by themajority of states, to legitimize the military offset requirement from foreign defence suppliers.23On the European Union level Article 346 Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) allowsMember States to “take such measures as it considers necessary for the protection of the essentialinterests of its security which are connected with the production of or trade in arms, munitions and warmaterial” However, recently taken actions such as implementation of Defence Procurement Directive2009/81/EC, publication Guidance Notes on Offsets and launching Code of Conduct on Offsets intend tolimit, in the first place, and then eliminate military offsets from business practices among EU member statsas an illegal constraint of free trade under EU law.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
Key Military Offsets Issues—Legal Aspects (continued)Currently, internal military offsets regulations are under revision, in most of the EU member states, toinline them with the Commission’s guidelines. Frost & Sullivan predicts that the EU law restrictions onmilitary offsets will cause a switch in the member states’ approach and implementation of military offsets-like practices such as industrial engagement or participation policies.In contrast to the military offsets requirement limitation in the EU countries, other key markets for defencesuppliers in APAC and Middle East are further expanding their relevant regulations. Defence sector24suppliers in APAC and Middle East are further expanding their relevant regulations. Defence sectorcustomers are expected to further tighten the military offsets guidelines and increase penalties for non-performance. The penalties differ, starting from fulfilment of unfulfilled obligations, through to increases inthe military offsets obligation amount, reduction of the defence contract value and ending with exclusionfrom the future defence procurement processes. Therefore, a proper assessment of realistic selection ofmilitary offsets package from both supplier and receiver side is a key to avoid misunderstandings andlegal disputes that may effect the realisation and profitability of main defence contract.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
Key Military Offsets Issues—Industrialisation andtechnology transferMilitary offset is perceived by receiving countries as industrial policy tool to stimulate and develop theindigenous arms industry and to some extent other sectors of local economy through targetedinterventions. However, there are mixed opinions regarding the long-term effects of military offsets onlocal economies. It is important to note that for some, e.g. APAC economies, efficient absorption of largemilitary offsets investments could be a challenge due to limited local industrial capacity to absorb militaryoffsets transaction of this scale.In absence of previous, at least limited technological competence, military offsets will have very limitedlong-term impact on competitive position of receiving company. Therefore, from military offsets receiver’sperspective compensation project(s) should be linked with relevant internal research and development(R&D) programs to accumulate and maximize companys technological competence. Only in this case,25(R&D) programs to accumulate and maximize companys technological competence. Only in this case,the military offsets beneficiary company will have a chance to enter the supply chain of defence OEM.Otherwise, narrowing military offsets just to manufacturing weapon parts or sub-systems will causealmost no long-term military offsets effect on the receiving company and may even lead to thedeterioration of the company market position after the end of the military offsets project(s).If tailored correctly, military offsets allow the receiving country to develop domestic industries in areas inwhich it had limited capabilities. However, it is worth noting two aspects of military offsets transactions;Firstly, defence procurement with military offsets is more expensive way of weapon purchases (from10.0 to 30.0 per cent of the main defence contract value) than ‘off-the-shelf’ transactions.Secondly, the receiver of military offsets investments should have necessary recourses to properlyaccumulate know-how and technology granted in framework of military offsets projects.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
Key Military Offsets Issues—Corruption ThreatsCorruption risk in defence procurements is substantial due to the high levelof secrecy. The corruption risk in associated military offsets programs iseven higher because in general, transparency in these projects is lowerthan the primary / main defence contracts.OEMs should carefully assess the military offset intermediaries’ reputationbefore commissioning their services. Research indicates that the militaryoffsets brokers and intermediaries are the most vulnerable to corruptionpractices. Disproportionally high intermediarys fee should raise a concernfor company’s decision makers. Therefore, OEMs should implementGermany 13Greece 94Italy 72Netherlands 9Norway 7Poland 41Turkey 54UK 17South Africa 69Corruption PerceptionsIndex 201226for company’s decision makers. Therefore, OEMs should implementinternal corruption risk assessment of military offsets projects to minimisethe risk of corruption which could have far-reaching consequences for thecompany’s reputation and profitability.An interesting correlation identified in this research indicates that thebiggest military offsets market and the highest military offsets marketgrowth (CAGR), respectively Saudi Arabia, India and Indonesia, are listedas countries with high value of Corruption Perception Index.Source: Transparency International.South Africa 69Australia 7India 94Indonesia 118South Korea 45Singapore 5Taiwan 37Brazil 69Chile 20Colombia 94Saudi Arabia 66UAE 27Frost & Sullivan analysis.
Military Offsets Program Analysis: IndiaIndian Medium Multi-RoleCombat Aircraft (MMRCA)Approximately 2013–2020On 31 January 2012, the Indian government announced selection of Dassault Rafale overthe Eurofighter Typhoon as preferred bidder for MMRCA. The deal for 126 French Rafalesfighters is estimated at $12.00 billion. However, the agreement has not been signed yet.This could be potentially increased in numbers by additional 60+ jets. Such a decision willincrease the value of MMCRA program for another $5.00-6.00 billion. The Indian Air ForceApproximately $6.00 billionOverview27increase the value of MMCRA program for another $5.00-6.00 billion. The Indian Air Forceexpects to finally complete negotiations and sign the contract by the end of the 2013.As a result of the contract for 126 fighters, 50.0 per cent military offsets will be required byIndian government. India is mainly interested in technology transfer, manufacturing aircraftstructures, sub-systems and military avionics including active electronically scanned array(AESA) radars and electronic warfare suits. The prime receiver of the military offsets will beHindustan Aeronautics Ltd, where 108 out of 126 fighters will be assembled. However, othercompanies of Indian aviation sector such as: Reliance Industries Ltd, Tata Technologies andmany more will benefit from the French military offsets projects.Military Offsets Requirements /OpportunitiesSource: Frost & Sullivan analysis.
