Defence IQ’s Armoured Vehicles Middle East - Trends & Analysis Report 2016 is now available to download without charge.This report offers a digestible guide to the latest AV market trends in the Middle East including a comparison with the world at large and the perspectives of industry professionals and military personnel within this domain.
The Middle East, together with the APAC region, is expected to boost vehicle procurement volumes significantly over the next ten years and offset anticipated reductions in the US and Europe. The Middle East accounts for over 10.% of armoured vehicle fleets in the world, with active procurement programmes in Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and the UAE. The region is forecast to continue increasing its spending on armoured vehicles until at least the end of the decade. This report analyses the currently holdings in the region and evaluates the future requirements.
“The continuing evolution of regular and asymmetric threats, from both state and non-state actors, threatens the ability of MENA’s armed forces to continue projecting capabilities; this also poses a threat in the delivering of security and stability in a region severely lacking both.

Read the latest analysis from Gulf State Analytics advisor Matthew Hedges on how pressures in the Middle East and North Africa are impacting regional armoured vehicle requirements, from the conflict in Yemen to the evolving challenges presented by Daesh insurgents.
The Middle-East accounts for over 15.8 per cent of the world fleet (23,511), with active procurement programmes in Bahrain, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and increased spending on armoured vehicles forecast until at least the end of the decade. When it comes to the armoured vehicles market, the Middle Eastern market remains fragmented. The stronger economic powers in the region continue to modernise their inventories and expand their capabilities. On the other hand, many war-torn countries in the region do not contribute much overall to regional market demand or supply, being in a position of seeing a great deal of AFV activity but not actively shaping the commercial trends.
