Global Defense Industrial Base Across the U.S., Europe & Most Parts of the World has Been on a Renaissance of Sorts over the Recent Years - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Global Aerospace & Defense Market - Annual Review - 2020 - Key Trends, Issues & Challenges, Growth Opportunities, Force Field Analysis, Market Outlook" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Global Defense Spending has been on a steady upswing since the past couple of years with the same reaching the highest levels, since the post cold war low of 1998, driven by the radical transformation of geopolitical dynamics and equations with the dismantling of traditional rule based world order and the transition away from the typical unipolar world, which had prevailed since the end of Cold war. The same has been further exacerbated by the Trump led U.S. administration's squandering of the traditional global leadership role which has led to realignment of relationships with the traditional NATO & other key allies with the mandate to increase defense spending to 2% of the GDP level.

The continued development of military capabilities by China & the resurgence of Russia as a key regional power over the years have already induced a shift in the overall U.S. strategy towards competition with near peer adversaries as against counter-terrorism operations earlier. This shift in strategic focus entails fast tracked procurement of systems & hardware to maintain numerical superiority, rapid development & deployment of next generation capabilities to plug existing & potential capabilities gaps and to retain the traditional, long standing strategic capabilities overmatch against adversaries along with continued R&D pursuits to maintain technological edge.

The defense industrial base across the U.S., Europe & most parts of the world has been on a renaissance of sorts over the recent years given the rapid transformation & evolution of geo-political dynamics, ongoing conflicts across some parts of the world & growing security threats. The modernization & upgrade of existing systems & hardware and their replacement with proven technologies and current, off the shelf solutions is providing significant growth opportunities to the U.S. defense industrial base. Thus, with acknowledgement of strong external threat perceptions, there is political consensus on fast tracked modernization, upgrade & replacements, which have been further corroborated by technological developments by the industry which are promising next generation capabilities at a workable & optimized TCO proposition.

The global defense industrial base, thus, is looking forward to a long & much anticipated activity boom with most OEMs reinvigorating their industrial bases, in line with the age of disruptive technologies, led by digitalization, additive manufacturing, unmanned & optionally manned operating capabilities & artificial intelligence, for making the most of this current phase of demand upswing. The commercial aerospace sector, on the contrary, witnessed a slowdown in growth in 2019 with reduced order intake, 737MAX crisis, airlines industry consolidation in Europe and production-related issues with recovery for commercial aerospace likely in 2020.
