- After the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) left the country in 2014, Afghan security forces were made responsible for protecting the country. Afghanistan’s total defense expenditure decreased at a CAGR of -1.78% during the historic period, from US.4 billion in 2014 to US billion in 2018. Around 34% of the national budget was allocated to security expenditure in 2017, however, the negative CAGR was caused by a decrease in foreign aid which previously benefitted the security sector.

- Over the forecast period, the procurement of weapons, construction of infrastructure, and acquisition of assets are expected to drive capital expenditure. The average share of revenue expenditure is expected to be 89.4% over the forecast period, higher than the average share of 84.8% during 2014-2018. The country’s increased focus on Afghan armed forces training sessions and better military personnel pay has resulted in a higher share of the defense budget being allocated to revenue expenditure, a trend expected to continue over 2019-2023.

- The MoD is expected to invest in land-based C4ISR, man-portable and vehicular tactical communications, multi-mission helicopters, starionary tactical communication stations, and attack helicopters.
