    Research Focus: The Malaysian Defense Industry to 2016:

    Malaysian military expenditure expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25 percent by 2016

    Between 2005 and 2010, Malaysian military expenditure increased at a CAGR of 2.75% and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25% during the forecast period (2011 – 2016), to value US$5.91 billion by 2016, an ICD research paper indicated. The country’s defense expenditure is anticipated to continue to increase due Malaysia’s geographical location in an unstable region, the country’s involvement with Singapore in competitive arms procurement, its strained relationship with Indonesia and Malaysia’s involvement in peacekeeping missions.

    In 2010, Malaysian capital defense expenditure accounted for 22% of the total defense budget, while revenue expenditure accounted for 78% of total expenditure. However, capital expenditure as a share of the total defense budget is expected to increase to an average of 24% by 2016.
