Abstract:

< ALACRA META ABSTRACT>BMI View: There has been a significant improvement in the anti-narcotics campaign with the arrest and deaths of several drug cartel leaders and officials. Some of the largest cartels have suffered losses and the campaign has received considerable praise. ...Despite the success of the anti-narcotics campaign in recent years with the arrest and deaths of several drug cartels and officials, the drug war continues to intensify and become even more brutal as new organizations are forming to fill the void. Because of the ongoing support of both the Mexican government and the US, the campaign against the cartels will not see gang violence become a long-term issue, but the campaign could easily mean a temporary increase in spending on reconnaissance and intelligence equipment. Mexico s already weak security situation in addition to high levels of income inequality and endemic corruption will lead to a challenging rest of the decade and a need for continued defence and security spending. ...Typically, the US has provided the bulk of the procurement needs for Mexico s armed forces, however this trend is changing. Mexico has begun importing significantly from Israel and European countries.

...Defence trade between the US and Mexico will dominate the short term, with the US revealing closer cooperation on equipment procurement with the Mexican armed forces. With the Mexico-EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA), European suppliers will also witness an increase in their market share. ...With the Mexico-EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA), European suppliers will also witness an increase in their market share. Problems associated with quality control and an insufficient pool of home-grown skilled labour, however, mean that few companies will be able to set up a strong manufacturing and servicing presence in Mexico in the short term until domestic capabilities have improved. Mexican ties with the US are strengthened through US government assistance in the fight against narcotics. ...The successful implementation of the program will open up huge opportunities for aerospace and defence companies in the longer term.

...The influence of the cartels have dwindled slightly over the last two years, however the problems they cause still define and will continue to define Mexico s defence budget. The budget deficit still remains a threat to spending, as it is now tied to GDP. ...
