- With a defense budget of US$8.6 billion in 2017, Venezuela is amongst the largest arms importers in Latin America and accounts for nearly one-third of the military goods imported in the region. The increasing military expenditure is largely supported by revenues from the world’s largest proven oil reserves in the country.

This burgeoning defense expenditure can be attributed to the modernization of the armed forces, re-armament programs, border disputes, and a strong focus on the development of the indigenous military sector.
- The country’s capital expenditure (CAPEX) is anticipated to increase during the forecasted. A number of procurements have fueled growth of the capital budget allocation, including the Shannxi Y-8 transport aircraft, Norinco VN-4 armored vehicles, T-72BIV MBTs (Russian tanks) and BTR-80 armored vehicles, S-125 Pechora-2M SAM systems, Sukhoi fighter jets, 2S23 Nona-SVK self-propelled guns, Stan Patrol 5009 offshore patrol vessels, Stan Patrol 4207 coastal patrol vessels, Enstrom 480 helicopters, and Diamond Aircraft DA40NG Star trainers.

Key opportunities for equipment suppliers are expected in areas such as multi-role aircraft, naval vessels, missile systems, surveillance systems, and UAVs.
- The Venezuelan homeland security expenditure is primarily driven by the need to respond to growing threats from organized crime, current civil unrest, and cyber threats. At the same time, a growing economic crisis is expected to cut down HLS expenditure.

The country will invest in biometric systems, border protection and training, CCTV systems, electronic surveillance systems, radar systems, and UAVs. Additionally, opportunities in security systems and platforms are expected to arise as a result of the country concentrating on strengthening border security.
