Key insights include:

During the forecast period, MINTS defense expenditure will be driven by the following factors:

Modernization of defense systems:

The Brazilian MoD is increasing efforts to replace its aging military systems and equipment acquired during the Soviet era. The country is expanding its naval fleet to increase regional maritime security by procuring Amazonas Class Ocean Patrol Vessels from UK and France. Furthermore, in an agreement signed with France in 2008, Brazil jointly manufacturing four Scorpene attack submarines, anticipated to enter service in 2017 along with a nuclear-powered submarine to be commissioned in 2023. Additionally in 2013, the Brazilian Air Force has chosen Saab's Gripen over other prospects which included Dassault's Rafale jet and Boeing's F/A 18 Super Hornet under a US$4.5 billion contract to provide 36 fighter jets by 2020.

The country's defense ministry is also currently in the process of strengthening its military ties with Russia having initiated a US$1 billion planned procurement of anti-aircraft missile batteries.

Drug Trafficking:

Drug trafficking is now rampant all over the world, more so in a few countries of the MINT region. Mexico is probably the most adversely affected by this than any other country globally. The nation has also had to grapple with crimes related to drug trafficking, which include weapons and human trafficking, money laundering, vehicle theft, kidnappings, and extortion. Nigeria has been a center for drug trafficking in Africa; the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) was formed in 2004 in an attempt to control this threat. In April 2011 the agency destroyed over 46,740.5 kg of illicit drugs, mainly cannabis, in the states of Kogi and Ondo. Other than drug trafficking internal conflicts have been another major concern in countries like Indonesia, Turkey and Nigeria. Indonesia still faces threats from insurgent groups such as the Free Papua Organisation (Organisasi Papua Merdeka, OPM) and the Free Aceh Movement (Gerakan Aceh Merdeka, GAM).

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
