Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2012 -- Thai defense expenditure expected to increase at a CAGR of 14.56% during the forecast period Thai military spending, estimated at US$5.6 billion in 2011, has increased at a CAGR of 21.15% during the review period and is projected to register a CAGR of 14.46% during the forecast period to reach US$9.7 billion by 2015. Thai defense expenditure is expected to be driven by modernization initiatives in addition to border disputes, security threats and an arms race with neighboring countries. Moreover, years of defense budget underfunding has created the need for a comprehensive modernization program for equipment including fighter aircraft, military helicopters, armored carrier vehicles and diesel submarines. To enable this Thailand is aiming to increase defense expenditure as a percentage of GDP from 1.6% in 2011 to 2.1% in 2015.
