Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

The Future of the Canadian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018 offers the reader an insight into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to gain market share in the Canadian defense industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

The Canadian defense budget, which is projected to be US$18.8 billion in 2014, is expected to dip at a CAGR of 1.17% during the forecast period and reach US$17.9 billion by 2018. Defense expenditure that amounted to 1% of GDP in 2013 is expected to fall to 0.8% by 2018 due to budget cuts. The downward slope is primarily due to the government's steps to curb its expenditure through restructuring of operations, efficiency enhancements, and erasing redundancy. Another contributing factor is the end of the Afghanistan war and withdrawal of troops from the region in 2014. 
The capital expenditure budget, which stood at an average of 17.3% in the review period, is expected to increase to 21.5% in the forecast period, due to the government's modernization plans. The HLS budget was US$348.0 million in 2009 and moved up to US$379.0 million in 2013, driven by increasing threats to cyber security, terrorist activity, and increased border security to combat illegal immigration. In the coming years, demand for equipment is mainly expected to revolve around fighters and multi-role aircrafts, armored personnel vehicles, corvettes, frigates, and UAVs.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Canada's defense expenditure primarily stands on the nation's military modernization goals set in 2008, targeted at the re-designing of the Canadian Army. Furthermore, the tussle with Russia over the sovereignty of the Arctic region also compels Canada to incur expenditure on its forces to protect its territory.

Key Market Issues
  • Canadian IRBs, which define defense offsets, provide a timescale for the submission of offset plans. These timescales are generally short and, therefore, challenge defense companies to identify offsets and submit proposals. The offset policy also defines penalties for not submitting offset plans in time and the bidder is rejected if 30% of the offset proposal is not submitted with the bid. Of the remaining 70%, 30% of the offset obligation must be identified within one year from the date of awarding the contract, and the remaining 40% has to be identified within three years. If these timelines are not adhered to, foreign companies may face a penalty of additional IRB obligations equal to 50% of the unfulfilled amount. 
  • ITAR is a set of regulations defined by the US government to control the trade of defense-related technology. Under the regulations, Canadian companies are allowed to offer Canadian citizens access to sensitive technology under certain circumstances. However, an employee of a Canadian defense company that is a national of a restricted country cannot access the information, which leads to non-compliance with Canadian human rights as it constitutes discrimination based on an employee's nationality or place of origin. The US authorities have proposed an amendment to the existing regulation in August 2010.

Key Highlights
  • Canada's defense expenditure is driven by the demand for military equipment refurbishment. The government felt the need to equip the armed forces with advanced and better technology and, subsequently, in 2008, released the CFDS that outlines the restructuring of Canadian military bases. The CFDS has assigned 12% of its total budget for upgrades over a twenty-year period spanning across 2008 to 2027. The DND also remains committed to roll-out the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy that aims to elevate the country's naval fleet, which was neglected in the budget revision of 2005-2006. This would primarily involve the purchase of supply ships, frigates, and off-shore patrol vessels for the Arctic region. The air and land forces will also receive a facelift via new and more technologically superior fighter aircraft and armored vehicles coming in place of the ones lost or depleted during the operation in Afghanistan.
  • One of the biggest threats that Canada's vital infrastructure, including government data base, utilities, and communication and transportation systems, are facing is that of cyber attacks. These sectors, which were once physically protected, are now interconnected through cyber networks. However, Canada suffers from the absence of tough defense against cyber criminals and hackers from China and Russia. In 2011, the entire Treasury Board Secretariat had to be kept off-line for months as government computer infrastructure was badly attacked by dangerous malware. To fight against cyber intrusion, the federal authority has introduced Canada's Cyber Security Strategy that lists the government's measures to secure the cyberspace for all Canadians. Under this plan, the government started the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) which functions collectively with national and international partners in determining, preventing, and negating cyber-attacks.
