Ken Research recently announced latest release of publication titled, “Defense Industry Business Outlook and Procurement Report H1 2016” which discusses growth potential of the global defense industry according to key business priorities, business concerns, nation-wise scope for development of the sector and the report sheds light on how the existing players can use this information to capture major share in the market. Additionally, major trends and drivers have also been covered. Additionally, intelligence strategies and procurement budget have also been covered.
There was a slowdown seen in the global defense industry in terms of budget and investment till 2015 but in 2016, defense industry is expected to grow at 3%. The revenues fell by 3.2 percent in 2013, 1.9 percent growth in 2014 and by 1.3 percent in 2015. The increase in returns in defense industry in 2016 is due to the increase in defense budgets in China and ‘the US’. There is increase in defense spending in some parts of the world but still there can be seen fall in defense expenditure globally. There are various challenges in survival of defense industry and the most important is how to survive in the declining global industry market and how to make profits out of it.
China’s defense budget is growing very fast which is making other economies restless. Defense budget of china is a cause of concern for its neighboring countries. China announced its defense budget for year 2014 as USD 132.0 billion which is 12.2% higher than year 2013. There is very high increase in China’s military spending from the last two decade almost two digit increase every year. In this era of globalization, such trends give rise to disruptive effects. Due to globalization, we are over with geographical industries which give rise to competition in each and every sector. Also the developed country which spends a lot in Research and development in this crucial sector for the growth and safety of a nation is growing at a lower rate than the growth in developing or emerging countries. The reason is quite simple. Developing nation can replicate the R&D done by developed nations and can grow faster. Developing nations are reaping the benefits of R&D done by developed ones.
Defense industry is a heavy industry which requires bulk investment. Domestic companies cannot compete with the global companies or other economies without the support of government. Government is taking interest in protecting their own country’s defense industry. It’s very painful for the domestic companies when there is a cut in national defense budgets as it becomes very difficult to be in the race of competition. Since the government defense budgets are shrinking over the years so it’s necessary to have cuts in expenditures. The customers whom defense companies come across are low on budgets so companies have to make equipment with minimum costs and there is a need for innovations and technological advancement in this sector.
