It provides an overview of keydefense companies, both domestic and foreign, together withinsights such as key alliances, strategic initiatives, and a brieffinancial analysis.Key Market IssuesBrazil has a strict offsetobligation for defense deals, equivalent to 100% of the contractvalue. This has proved a challenge for those foreign OEMs whosegovernment has a policy of limited technology transfer, includingthe US-based company Boeing.
  • 6. Brief SummaryBrief SummaryReports Cornerwww.reportscorner.comMoreover, Brazils offset policy requires that defense contractsuse domestic companies for the manufacture and assembly ofdefense systems. A number of foreign OEMs have agreed to suchoffset requirements due to the availability of inexpensive laborand raw materials in the country. However, a significant portion ofthese companies are reluctant to share proprietary informationwith Brazil, and often fail to supply defense systems to thecountry as a consequence. These rigorous requirements by Braziloften delay the approval of defense deals.]A significant challengefaced by defense suppliers to Brazil is the time taken by theMinistry of Defense to ratify defense deals. As defenseprocurements occur through competitive bidding, competingcompanies must undergo technical compliance checks, afterwhich the ministry enters a lengthy negotiation process withbidders, designed to secure the maximum technology transfer atthe lowest price. As such, the ratification process is furtherdelayed by long
  • 7. Brief SummaryBrief SummaryReports Cornerwww.reportscorner.comnegotiation periods and competing offers given by the variousdefense firms. Examples include the delay in selecting a supplierfor the fourth-generation fighter jets and the delayed purchase ofarmored personnel carriers from the Italian branch of InvescoLtd.Despite having the eleventh-largest defense expenditureglobally, Brazil only allocates around 6-7% of its total defenseexpenditure to arms procurement. The country currently allocates41% of its defense budget towards providing pensions for retiredmilitary personnel, and a significant amount is spent on theadministration of its defense forces. Although domesticadvancements by Brazilian defense firms are fueling thecomponent procurement market, the deal value for thesecomponents is often small. This results in the Brazilian defenseindustry appearing as a relatively less attractive investmentopportunity for foreign OEMs.Key HighlightsAll defenseprocurement and acquisitions made by the Ministry of Defenseand associated bodies follow a competitive bidding process.
  • 8. Brief SummaryBrief SummaryReports Cornerwww.reportscorner.comThe Ministry of Defense decides which company from which toprocure equipment, depending on whether the equipmentcomplies with the ministrys requirements, which company offersthe lowest price, and which company offers the most technologytransfer. The rule applies for both domestic and foreign supplierswithout any preferential treatment for domestic suppliers.Brazilianaircraft imports account for almost 46% of its total armsprocurements, and involves the import of advanced fighter jetsand components for the manufacture of indigenous aircraftsystems such as helicopters and cargo aircraft. As the countryscurrency is strengthening and import duties are waved off,importing aircraft seems to be lucrative for the country. Thecountrys naval procurements include submarines from Brazil andFrance. France has emerged as Brazils leading arms supplier,with 17.5% share in countrys total defense imports.
  • 9. Brief SummaryBrief SummaryReports Cornerwww.reportscorner.comOn a number of occasions France has offered technology transferto Brazil, which has helped it secure defense contracts with thecountry. Brazil supplies engines to Brazilian aircraft andsubmarine manufacturers, and is the second-largest armssupplier to the country. The implementation of the AmazonProtection System (SIVAM) has lead the country to procure radarand satellite components, most of which are supplied by the USdefense firm Raytheon. During the review period, Brazil has alsoprocured missile systems from Israel, the US, and Spain, whichincluded anti-ship, anti-submarine, and beyond visual rangemissiles.During 2008-2012, aircraft were the major exportedproduct, with total 81% of the defense exports. This largestpercentage of aircraft can be attributed to multiple deals ofEmbraer with foreign countries like Chile, Ecuador and Colombiaetc.
