Defense & Security Market Research Reports, Analysis & Trends
Defense & security industry comprises companies that operate by developing, manufacturing and distributing and supplying of the defense and security related products, devices and services to the agencies, companies, government, industries and public. The defense and security industry's growth has been phenomenal especially in the last decade, where the necessity for either increasing the police or military force has arose or the general consensus to increase security systems in overall protection and surveillance for the public and its safety. Across the globe, the industry is growing with full thriving success and the major drivers of this industry's success is the growing concern in metropolitan cities and urban areas. So as to understand the prospects and health of Brazil’s defense community, the report takes a multifaceted approach. It examines the internal and external security challenges faced by the country, the modus-operandi of political defense decision-making, and how these decisions are transformed into military action. In addition, it outlines the order of battle of the country’s armed forces, the respective sizes of the armed forces, current defense procurement programmes and future anticipated acquisitions of military materiel.
Beyond this, the report also investigates Brazil’s growing defense industrial sector, particularly in the realm of aerospace, and the impact that this defense industry could have in the domestic and international context. The report makes several key findings. Firstly, it notes that the country has a long-term objective to become a major player in the global defense industry; both in Latin America, and abroad. Secondly, it notes that Brazil is playing an increasingly important role face-to-face security both domestically and across the wider region. This includes its relationships with its neighbors and its participation in international peacekeeping missions. Fourthly, the Brazilian defense establishment is wedded to a long-term programme of defense modernization. This is focused on the replacement of obsolete platforms and capabilities with new domestically produced and imported equipment. Long term, Brazil sees itself as a global player both in terms of defense materiel provision and in terms of operational participation. This is a trend that is unlikely to change over the next decade.
Defense & Security Industry Current Trends
Homeland security budget in the last few decades has substantially increased in the US and across many countries' respective security and defense agencies. Expenditure in the United States to 2018, is an essential resource for professionals active across the industry value chain and for new players considering entry into the market. The push to establish itself as a key regional defense hub and the ongoing modernization of defense equipment, as the country seeks to enhance its technological capabilities, will be major drivers of defense expenditure growth. However, the country's ability to support this growth will be predicated on greater state investment and this will be informed by a robust economic growth outlook over our forecast period; we are forecasting average annual real Gross Domestic Product growth of 3.7% to 2017. The growth with such trend is expected to grow at a much stronger pace and rate.
