The country's capital expenditure is expected to increase from about US$1.4 Billion in 2017 to around US$2.7 Billion in 2022, growing at a strong CAGR of over 14.5% during the forecast period. The Qatari Defense Ministry is expected to procure attack and multi-utility helicopters, missile defense systems, fighter aircraft, main battle tanks, and early warning radar systems.
Qatari defense industry is one of the fastest-growing defense markets in the Middle East, and, due to the underdeveloped domestic defense sector, relies on foreign OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to strengthen its defense capabilities. During 2012-2016, Qatar sourced the majority of its defense imports from companies based in the US, which dominated by fulfilling around 68% of the country's arms imports. Aircrafts accounted for over 51% of Qatar's arms imports, followed by missile systems and armored vehicles.
