During the review period, Ukrainian defense expenditure recorded a CARC of -1.7%, and, in 2011, valued an estimated US$1.7 billion. During the forecast period, the country's defense expenditure is expected to record a CAGR of 8.7%, to reach US$2.6 billion by 2016. This expected increase is primarily the result of growing tensions between Ukraine and Russia, the acquisition of new defense systems and the country's participation in international peacekeeping missions.
Ukraine's defense expenditure is closely correlated to overall economic growth, and, as a consequence of the financial crisis, the country's defense expenditure recorded a double digit decline in 2009. As a percentage of GDP, average Ukrainian defense expenditure during the review period stood at 1.2%; however, during the forecast period, defense expenditure is expected to reduce to an average of 0.94% of GDP. This reduction in defense expenditure as a percentage of GDP can be attributed to an increased GDP growth rate.
