Key Market Issues In 2013, Ireland registered a defense budget of US$1.2 billion and invested just 0.5% of its GDP in defense; this is minute in comparison with the UK and France, which spend 2.2% and 1.9% of their GDP on defense respectively. The small defense budget of the country results in a reduced capital expenditure allocation, which further effects in the purchase of equipment and hi-tech arms and ammunition. Consequently, Ireland’s relatively small defense budget has become a barrier to entry for foreign companies, despite Future of the Irish Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018
  2. 2. the country maintaining an open economy. Ireland is a member of the EDA, which was formed to improve European defense capabilities and to create a single defense equipment market; consequently, the Irish government gives preference to European countries for the import of defense equipment. The EDA code of conduct for defense procurement requires all member countries to post all new defense contract opportunities on the Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB), which allows all member countries to become aware of defense requirements in one place. In addition to this, in order to develop the European defense equipment market, the EU issued a directive in 2009 that simplified the terms and conditions of transfers of defense products within the EU, and coordinated procedures for the award of defense contracts, and as a result, the Irish government’s preference for European companies for the import of defense equipment acts as a barrier for entry into the Irish defense market for non-EU countries. Key Highlights Irish defense forces are involved in a number of overseas peacekeeping missions, which include UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), UN Observer Mission in Congo (MONUC), EU Training Mission Somalia (EUTM), International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Asia, EU Stabilization Force (EUFOR/SFOR) and Kosovo Force (KFOR), UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), UN Interim Force Lebanon (UNIFIL), and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) in the Middle East. Ireland deploys 97 military personnel in peacekeeping operations, out of which, 56 personnel are committed to missions in Bosnia and Kosovo. Cybercrime: Cybercrime is seen as a major threat to internal security by the Irish government. According to the cybercrime survey conducted by the Irish Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), Irish organizations face cybercrime incidents from malicious software and phishing attempts. In addition to this, the theft of sensitive IT assets is on a significant increase, and in 2007, 49% of the 61 Irish organizations surveyed reported asset thefts. Due to the increasing threat of cybercrime against Ireland’s internal security, cyber security is expected to be a factor behind the Irish HLS budget during the forecast period, as despite budget constraints, the Irish Department of Justice and Equality remains committed to countering cybercrime. Ireland imports a majority of its defense equipment from Italy with the latter constituting 34.5% of the country’s defense import market, followed by Switzerland and South Africa, each with shares of 20.7%. Norway and the US are the other two key import partners of the country, with shares of 13.8% and 10.3% respectively. Ireland gives priority to European countries and South Africa for defense equipment imports, and the high level of defense imports from Italy is primarily due to Ireland’s acquisition of six AW139 transport helicopters from AgustaWestland, which is based in Italy. In addition to this, the purchase of 80 Swiss-manufactured Mowag Piranha armored personnel carriers in 2007 and 2008 resulted in Switzerland gaining a higher share in Ireland’s total defense imports. Moreover, the US sold artilleries to Ireland in 2007 and 2008. Furthermore, during the review period, Ireland made an important defense acquisition from South Africa, with the purchase of 27 RG32M light tactical vehicles. table Of Content 1 Introduction 1.1.
