Scope

- The Australian government remains committed to building strong defense capabilities. The countrys defense budget recorded a CAGR of 0.28% during the historic period (2013-2017), from US$26.2 billion in 2013 to US$26.5 billion in 2017. Modernization initiatives and advanced equipment procurement programs - as outlined in white papers published by the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) - will drive expenditure. According to one white paper, the country is expected to undertake a number of modernization and procurement programs over the coming decade.
- During the historic period, an average of 27.9% of the total defense budget was allocated to capital expenditure; this will reach 39.4% over the forecast period. This is predominantly due to Australias planned armed force modernization program and procurement plans. Specifically, investment will be allocated to replacing ageing armored vehicles with infantry fighting and combat reconnaissance vehicles.
- The MoD is expected to invest in Multi-role aircraft, submarines, frigates, multi-role aircraft MRO, land-based C4ISR, and armored fighting vehicles
