BMI View: Weaker economic growth as a result of the Brexit vote in 2016-2017 will likely force the MoDto revise its plan for a 3.1% real term increase in defence spending out to 2020. Defence expenditure willstill remain above the 2% of GDP NATO-stipulated target, amid rising security threats from Russianaggression, terrorism and cybercrime - allowing the Ministry of Defence to move ahead with keyprocurement programmes. The Brexit vote will create uncertainty in the local defence sector and could leadto reductions in FDI and R&D funding in the next few years. However, longer-term potential for industrydevelopment and export growth remains strong, amid robust government support and as local companies'technologically-advanced capabilities continue to attract investors.

Latest Updates

- Following the Brexit vote, our Country Risk (CR) team has downgraded its real GDP growth forecast forthe UK in 2016 and 2017 to 1.4% and 0.2% respectively - significantly below the forecasts used as abasis for the Ministry of Defence (MoD)'s spending review. Consequently, we believe the MoD will haveto downwardly adjust its 3.1% real growth target for defence spending in the period to 2020.

- According to the 2015 Defence Equipment Plan (DEP), published in October, the MoD planned to spendGBP68.5bn on the procurement of new equipment over 2015-2025. The SDSR, published in November2015, added another GBP12bn out to 2020. However, with the pound having depreciated and overalleconomic growth negatively impacted by the Brexit vote some procurement programmes considered nonessentialmay see cuts or delays.

- The Brexit vote has created uncertainty regarding the future of the country's defence industry. Thisuncertainty could, in the short-to-medium term negatively impact FDI into the local defence sector. Itcould also limit, to some extent, EU funding for defence research and development (R&D) in the UK incoming years.

- We expect the Brexit vote to have a relatively limited impact on the UK's defence industry collaborationwith the rest of Europe, as such programmes are independent of the EU, usually organised directly by theparticipating states or through OCCAR.
