The Future of the Lebanese Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape, and Forecasts to 2018 offers the reader an insight into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to gain market share in the Lebanese defense industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

Lebanon, one of the poorer countries in the Middle East region in terms of natural resources, is mired by cross border violence, internal extremism, and hostile neighbors. The country's weak economic condition affected its defense capabilities, resulting in a volatile security situation for the past two years. Spillover of violence across its borders has put pressure on its government to prioritize military modernization during the review. Consequently, the Lebanese military expenditure registered a growth rate of 12.46% in the last five years and expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.66% over the forecast period. The country's capital expenditure, which values US$110 million in 2013, is projected to reach US$150 million by 2018. In the last five years, Lebanon focused on importing armored vehicles, aircraft, missiles, and artillery, which are expected to continue to be primary imported weapon categories over the forecast period as well.

Key Market Issues

-Lebanon's defense budget is small, reaching its peak of US$1.2 million in 2013, and does not attract many foreign companies. During the review period, an average of 19.2% of the defense budget was allocated for capital expenditure on defense equipment, and this small amount of the budget does not attract many companies to supply arms to, or invest in, the country. Restrictions by the US and other major nations on supply of advanced weapons to Lebanon further increases the challenges, as defense contractors might not find it feasible to violate the embargo to cater for a small market.
-Hezbollah, the Lebanese militant group has been classified as a terrorist organization by the US and prohibits sale of arms for fear of them being used against Israel and its supporting nations. UN Security Council imposed an open ended embargo on arms transfers to Lebanon not authorized by the UNIFIL, the UN peacekeeping force. In addition, the US and European countries restrict sale of modern weaponry to the Lebanese government, fearing that Hezbollah may take control of these arms and use them for its terrorist activities. Moreover, ongoing Syrian conflict complicates the security situation in Lebanon affecting its market attractiveness.

Key Highlights

-Cross border violence: Lebanon, which shares borders with Israel and Syria, is mired by the cross border violence on both sides. It maintains an open border policy with Syria, which is undergoing through a political turmoil, resulting in an increased burden of one million Syrian refugees on its economy and security forces. Lebanon had a long history of sectarian violence, which is now being fuelled again by the cross border insurgency. Recent bomb attacks on Iran's embassy in Beirut in retaliation of Lebanese extremist group Hezbollah's alleged intervention in Syrian conflict epitomize its security concerns. Hezbollah, a powerful Shiite military group in Lebanon with political representation in the country's Parliament, is alleged of supporting Syrian government fight its opposition, primarily consisting Sunni rebels and extremists. The Syrian war reignited sectarian violence in northern parts of Lebanon, which are dominated by the Sunni population.
-Sectarian violence: Lebanon is still recuperating from long civil war and Israeli occupation. The country's population consists of four major religious groups, Christians, Druze, Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims. Conflicts between these groups over the political power and government formation led to 15 year long civil war in the country lasting from 1975 to 1990. In addition, southern parts of the country are home for large groups of Palestinian refugees, who fled its neighbouring territories controlled by Israel. Moreover, Israeli occupation of South Lebanon until 2000 has resulted in emergence of political armed group Hezbollah, which has its political representatives in Lebanon's Parliament. Moreover, huge influx of refugees fleeing the neighbouring country Syria have added to the complexity of Lebanon's internal security challenges and fuelled the sectarian violence. These factions have pose serious threats to the government's control on its territories and contributed to the troubled security situation in the country.
-The lack of a well-established infrastructure to produce defense equipment domestically has made Lebanon rely on imports from foreign companies. During the review period, the country's defense imports peaked in 2010. Armored vehicles and Aircraft dominated the imports during this period, with the US and France being the preferred sources. Major contracts signed during 2012-2013 will drive the country's imports over the forecast period, which is expected to see substantial growth.

Marine Biotechnology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/marine-biotechnology-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019

Marine biotechnology is a growing field comprising marine bio-medicine including pharmaceuticals discovery, materials technology, bio remediation, marine biomedical model organism, genomics, bioinformatics and molecular genetics. The prime motivation for this discipline is clearly derived from the enormous biodiversity and genetic life in sea. The marine environment is a rich source of both chemical and biological diversity. This diversity consists of compound with the potential for industrial development as cosmetics, nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals, molecular probes, enzymes, fine chemicals, and agrichemicals.

Marine biotechnology comprises broad range of categories such as marine environmental protection, genetics, marine bioactive substances, marine biomaterials, marine culture, fermentation engineering and enzyme engineering. Although marine biotechnology market is in a nascent stage, it has untapped potential and promising growth prospect for future. The fundamental end user applications of marine products are industrial products, health care/biotechnology, consumer products, public services and infrastructure. This technology lends maximum utilization of marine resources and also conserves and safeguards these resources.

The United States dominates the market with largest share for marine biotechnology. It is home to the developed marine research centers specializing in marine bio technology. Healthcare or biotechnology constitutes largest end-use segment for marine biology. Europe is also one of the leading regions contributing to the growth of this market.

Pediatric drugs are a special class of drugs which are prescribed to children and infants for different diseases. These drugs are recommended in various conditions such as asthma, anorexia, birth defects, cancer in children, growth deficiencies, juvenile diabetes, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and others. Various acts have been passed to control pediatric drugs such as Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA). These acts have been introduced to increase the investments on R&D for pediatric drugs and to increase the drugs count prescribed for children and infants.

Pediatric drugs are categorized in three segments namely pediatric clinical pharmacology, pediatric pharmacotherapy and pediatric pharmacy. Pediatric pharmacotherapy focuses on those drugs which will behave differently in children and adults. Pediatric clinical pharmacology includes those drugs which are helpful for mental and physical growth. Pediatric pharmacy includes all those drugs which are specifically meant for children.
