What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The Colombian defense industry is expected to register strong growth in the next five years due to the rise of both external and internal security threats. The significant reasons behind the rise of military expenditure are the threats from Venezuela and rebel forces to internal security and the fight against drug trafficking. This increase is required for the purchase of helicopters, battle tanks, UAVs, and air defense systems as, even though the country allocated an average of 4.4% of its GDP for defense during the review period, the majority of the budget was allocated to revenue expenditure.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Threat from Venezuela, high crime levels, military modernization, threats from rebel groups, and drug trafficking set to increase defense expenditure

Key Market Issues
Recently, the Colombian MoD acknowledged that cocaine smugglers and leftist rebels had infiltrated senior levels of the Colombian Army, impeding efforts to defeat guerrilla organizations and combat the drug trade. The Army discovered classified military information in computer files of guerrillas from the FARC rebel group, which led the MoD to believe senior military officials may be sharing information in exchange for bribes.
Threat from Venezuela: Following the independence of Colombia and its neighbor Venezuela in the 19th century, problems with border security up until the late 1980s triggered serious diplomatic conflicts and overshadowed important bilateral trade. Colombia's relations with Venezuela underwent a substantial change in the 1990s, when both countries began to perceive the other as a threat.
