India, Australia and Qatar will be the largest customers of weapons in the short term

Three countries - India, Australia and Qatar - account for more than a third of the total value of the expected potential contracts for the import of weapons and military equipment, which are planned to be concluded in the short term.


The total volume of “transferring” potential contracts for the near future for the import of arms (the value of intentions) as of the end of 2013, TSAMTO estimates at $ 469 billion dollars.

In the calculation for each importing country are taken into account:

- completed tenders for the purchase of military hardware, contracts with the winners of which are not signed in the 2013 calendar year;

- Tenders announced in 2013 year (decisions on the choice of winners have not yet been made);

- Tenders announced earlier and held during 2013 (decisions on the choice of winners have not yet been made);

- stated intentions for tenders in the future;

- stated intentions for the direct purchase of weapons;

- joint programs for the development of military hardware of exporting countries with importing countries, taking into account the announced volume of purchases by importers of relevant types of weapons.

The calculation takes into account promising procurement programs on the basis of data available to TSAMTO at the end of December 2013.

Of course, the dynamics of the volume of newly concluded arms import contracts will depend on the situation in the global economy. This issue was discussed in detail in a material published by TSAMTO in the public domain 27 December and dedicated to the global volume of "transferring" potential contracts for the near future for the export of weapons.

In general, at the moment in the rating TSAMTO by intentions for the purchase of weapons includes 81 country.

The first place in the ranking in terms of the value of intentions for arms procurement is occupied by India (with a large margin from other countries) - 94,083 billion dollars (20,06%).

The second place in terms of the value volume of "transferring" potential arms procurement contracts is Australia - 44,58 billion dollars (9,51%). Closes the top three Qatar - 36,777 billion dollars (7,84%).

These three countries account for 37,41% of the total volume of potential arms import contracts in the near future.

Places with 4 to 10 in the rating on the “rolling” potential contracts for the near future for the import of weapons occupy Saudi Arabia - 32,373 billion dollars (6,9%), Turkey - 27,115 billion dollars (5,78%), Canada - 24,298 billion dollars (5,18%) , USA - 17,5 billion dollars (3,73%), UAE - 16,858 billion dollars (3,59%), South Korea - 14,528 billion dollars (3,1%) and the United Kingdom - 14,42 billion dollars (3,07%).

The top ten have accumulated the value volume of “transferring” potential arms import contracts in the short term for the amount of 322,532 billion dollars (68,78%).

In terms of value, the “transferring” potential contracts for the purchase of weapons for the future in the second ten were as follows: Poland — 10,584 billion dollars (2,26%), Italy — 10 billion dollars (2,13%), Brazil — 8,787 billion dollars (1,87%) , Japan - 8,76 billion dollars (1,86%), Norway - 8,6 billion dollars (1,83%), Taiwan - 6,987 billion dollars (1,49%), Algeria - 6,9 billion dollars (1,47%), Netherlands - 6,135 billion dollars (1,31%) , Israel - 6,064 billion dollars (1,29%) and Denmark - 5,72 billion dollars (1,22%).

The second dozen accumulated the value of the “transferring” potential arms import contracts in the short term to the amount of 78,537 billion dollars (16,75%).

The third ten are Belgium (5,1 billion dollars), Venezuela (5,03 billion dollars), Singapore (4,979 billion dollars), Pakistan (4,1 billion dollars), Iraq (3,728 billion dollars), Switzerland (3,502 billion dollars), Colombia (3,34 billion dollars), Malaysia (3,2 billion dollars), Germany (2,73 billion dollars) and the Philippines (2,32 billion dollars).

For reference: China with a volume of about 2 billion dollars takes only 31 place.

The third dozen have accumulated the value volume of “carry-over” potential arms import contracts in the short term for the amount of 38,029 billion dollars (8,11%).

The remaining 50 countries plus the category “unknown” account for 29,87 billion dollars (6,37%).

          Poland has decided to claw up at 10,584 billion, and since the neighbor is painfully filthy, it will have to put the RPU closer to them, Schaub did not play the "cool" ones.

        India and Australia are buying weapons for defense, but selling weapons to Qatar ... At least stupid, this hornet's nest should be covered with dust.

        Qatar, like Estonia, has no where to disperse one tank, but they want to be heard.
        True, Qatar, unlike Estonia, does not know where to store green candy wrappers, they decided to turn them into iron military toys. In that region, it is now fashionable.

          In Australia, Australian citizens are "found" and probably have their own opinion on the issue. And, in addition, Australia is a federal state within the Commonwealth, led by Great Britain. The head of the country is the English queen. Think about it. The Queen of England is represented by a Governor-General, appointed on the recommendation of the Australian Government. Legally, he is the supreme bearer of executive and judicial power, as well as the supreme commander of the armed forces. There is also a parliament that determines the general tasks of building and financing the armed forces. The Ministry of Defense is in charge of the construction of the armed forces. Under the chairmanship of the Minister, the Defense Council operates, which includes the Secretary of the Ministry, the Commander of the Armed Forces and Chiefs of Staff of the Services, as well as the Minister for Scientific and Personnel Affairs in the Field of Defense. The Defense Council is directly involved in the development of plans for the combat employment of the armed forces, their mobilization and operational deployment, manning, organization of combat training and logistics support.
          Australia, being a member of the ANZKZH and ANZUS military blocs, as well as assuming the obligations of the "security guarantor" of the island states of Oceania, in the event of local conflicts will be forced to fulfill allied obligations, including the use of its armed forces outside the national territory. This will affect Australia's interests and have a direct or indirect negative impact on its security. For this reason, the country's leadership continues to consider vast sea areas south of the continental part of Southeast Asia, as well as waters east of the Australian continent, covering the island states of Oceania, as a "zone of their direct military interests".
          And so on. And now answer the question, is it worth it, so categorically, with the "insolence of an all-knowing cook" to broadcast -
          "And what about Australia?
          Who is threatening her? "
          And in general - "if you want peace, prepare for war." Here we are, it would not hurt to attend to the same.

      I agree with you, diplomacy is not being rolled off today. So to pervert the politics that the USA did with it, there was no confidence in the word, just one deception and fraud. In such circumstances, and weapons will not help.

      Just look at global trends.
      If you have a weak army, ancient air defense, and no oil reserves, your country will automatically turn to the democratization line. And here, the political attitude, allied commitments or international treaties do not play a role! The time has come for strength, we will return to the Stone Age if want to.

      Apparently, such activity of weapons is not good.

      It strains, there is such a thing. But nobody canceled the banal rearmament of the army and navy with new models.

      Well, why? Here is the Syrian issue, again the latest agreements on Iran. But naturally they only negotiate with equals, or with those who can inflict "unacceptable damage", this rule is clearly demonstrated to all "common people" in Libya. So - "Be ready for work and defense."

    Qatar is particularly striking in third place, it is just that country that is a leader in the financing of terrorism in Russia. I am simply amazed at the unprincipled nature of our government. For the sake of money, they are ready to sacrifice dozens of the lives of their citizens, a disgrace to which there is no explanation. Although corruption is most likely the same, mother will sell her mother for money.

    everything about India is clear. the country does not want to lag behind China. Everything is clear with Australia too. The APR will soon turn into a region where very significant events will occur and it is not surprising that all countries of the region are actively arming. And Qatar has one problem - fear of Iran.

    Qatar is state-oriented, as is Australia. The rest of the Middle Eastern buyers of our weapons drove into the Stone Age ((
    Hopes only in India, she buys from us and from the star-hairy.
