International Military Markets - Latin America & Caribbean

The International Military Markets - Latin America & Caribbean service provides the insight required to gain a competitive advantage in this complex market.

Latin American defense procurements are increasing, thanks in part to increases in defense spending year-over-year. Pressured by the urgent need to modernize and replace outdated platforms, regional governments are finally beginning to buy. After decades of funding problems, continued economic growth and improved saving mechanisms have enabled several Latin American nations to begin fulfilling existing requirements.

Each service in this series provides a regional country-by-country examination of military capabilities, equipment requirements, and inventories. Each country report contains insight on governmental and political structures, political and economic trends, national and defense budgets, force structures, military planning requirements, recent and future procurements, security environments, threat assessments, and military postures. For an overall perspective, a concise regional overview is provided via one or more Market Analyses. These services offer critical insight on world geopolitics coupled with FI’s expertise on the defense and aerospace industries.

Reporting for each country in the service, listed below, is divided into four individual sections: Data, Market Overview, Analysis, and Force Structures:
