Albania Defense Market Drivers

Modernization of depleting equipment, and contribution to NATO are key factors driving defense expenditure in Albania. Albania has made significant contributions to NATO via shared facilities and personnel deployed on operations in Afghanistan, as well as bilaterally supporting US operations in Iraq. Albania also regularly contributes troops to the South-Eastern Europe Brigade containing multiple NATO members, the KFOR mission in Kosovo, and UN peacekeeping in Liberia and the Ivory coast. Albania will continue to ensure a portion of its defense budget is spent on maintaining the equipment and training needed to contribute to these efforts.

Albania Military Doctrines and Defense Strategies

Albanian military doctrine is centred on the ‘joint warfare’ concept in line with NATO standards which emphasizes a flexible and adaptable force that can scale up or down according to the mission and integrate seamlessly with allied forces – in line with other NATO countries. Albania’s Army comprises a rapid reaction brigade, a smaller ‘Commando’ special forces regiment, and the ‘Area Support’ brigade which facilitates engineering, transport, logistics, medical and intelligence units, and other operations. In terms of operations, Albanian land forces are for the most part lightly armed with mortar fire support and mechanized mostly with light utility vehicles including second-hand Land Rovers and Iveco light-armoured cars. Albania’s navy takes on primarily coastguard and maritime policing duties, which take on extra importance considering the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) natural gas route that runs through the country and into the waters off the Albanian coast.
