Key Market Issues
· In 2013, Ireland registered a defense budget of US$1.2 billion and invested just 0.5% of its GDP in defense; this is minute in comparison with the UK and France, which spend 2.2% and 1.9% of their GDP on defense respectively. The small defense budget of the country results in a reduced capital expenditure allocation, which further effects in the purchase of equipment and hi-tech arms and ammunition. Consequently, Ireland’s relatively small defense budget has become a barrier to entry for foreign companies, despite the country maintaining an open economy.
· Ireland is a member of the EDA, which was formed to improve European defense capabilities and to create a single defense equipment market; consequently, the Irish government gives preference to European countries for the import of defense equipment. The EDA code of conduct for defense procurement requires all member countries to post all new defense contract opportunities on the Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB), which allows all member countries to become aware of defense requirements in one place. In addition to this, in order to develop the European defense equipment market, the EU issued a directive in 2009 that simplified the terms and conditions of transfers of defense products within the EU, and coordinated procedures for the award of defense contracts, and as a result, the Irish government’s preference for European companies for the import of defense equipment acts as a barrier for entry into the Irish defense market for non-EU countries.
