This report offers insights into market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign OEMs to gain a market share in the Brazilian defense industry.

Brazil maintains stable and amicable relationships with its neighboring countries, and has not engaged in any major armed conflict with another nation in over 50 years. The country is vast and geographically diverse and is home to the Amazon River and rainforests. It also has large reserves of several natural resources, and has recently discovered substantial oil reserves. The country’s defense procurements are largely focused on the protection of its substantial resources from illegal mining, deforestation and drug trafficking. The Brazilian Ministry of Defense aims to decrease its dependence on foreign OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and enhancing its domestic defense capabilities. As such, it prefers to procure defense technology from foreign OEMs, which is then constructed by domestic defense companies. This provides domestic defense firms with technology and equipment which they can integrate into their existing systems. The technology procured has assisted the development of the country’s aeronautical industry, and continues to provide the Brazilian defense forces advanced attack helicopters, light attack aircrafts and air cargo transport systems.
