Fast Market Research recommends "Indonesia Defence & Security Report 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available
[ClickPress, Fri Sep 25 2015] Indonesia's domestic defence sector is large but needs the current modernization and reorganization efforts underway to realize its potential. The defence industry is largely state-owned, stifling innovation and preventing independent expansion. Current President Jokowi is not likely to prioritize the defence industry as much as previous President Yudhoyono, but as the government is already taking steps to improve procurement procedures and boost local industry by modernizing and re-structuring, the industry is nevertheless likely to slowly improve over the next few years. Efforts are especially being made in the Navy and Air force, and with foreign partnerships coming into place, the industry will likely have a boost regardless of the realization of the ambitious budget increase to 1.5% of GDP before 2020.

The economy is still under pressure, with a slower growth than President Jokowi had been expecting at 7%. The currency is still weak, and will hinder Indonesia's ability to procure foreign weaponry. Defence spending at 0.8% of GDP is still far below the target of 1.5% in addition to a weakened rupiah driving up the cost of imports. The domestic defence industry is still too immature to fulfil its demand, but the reorganization and the increasing transparency of the Department of Defence's processes will encourage both private sector interest and foreign investors to invest in Indonesia's local defence industries.
Domestically, Indonesia has some security concerns likely to spur spending over the next few years. The continued threat of terrorist activities and insurgencies mean Indonesia will have to continue its efforts of increasing the defence budget, as well as for funding in counter-terrorism. Concerns pertaining to growing Islamic militancy with the emergence of Islamic State (IS) will likely increase, making Indonesia reliant on foreign partnerships and with a need to develop the appropriate technology to counter the threats.
