US defence spending will likely see healthier growth under the new president relative to the past five years, given that both candidates have indicated they would increase the military budget in campaign statements, and due to the diverse range of security challenges that the country is now facing. In particular, threats from Russian aggression, Chinese assertion in the South China Sea and terrorism will drive spending in coming years. Meanwhile, threats posed by North Korea and Iran have the potential to escalate quickly, and cyberwarfare risks are set to grow rapidly over the long term. These challenges will shape procurement priorities. Amid healthier domestic defence spending and increasing exports, the US defence sector outlook is brightening. That said, while the US will remain the largest defence exporter in the world for the foreseeable future, its share of the global market will reduce gradually longer term as other players such as China and Russia strengthen their positions.
Recent Updates


- In February 2016, the government requested USD619.5bn in defence funding under the FY2017 budget. This included base funding of USD523.9bn for the DoD (and USD7.9bn in mandatory funding for the DoD); USD58.8bn for overseas contingency operations; USD20.5bn for nuclear energy programmes; and USD8.4bn in non-DoD-related defence spending. The proposed budget has yet to be approved at the time of writing; Congress will resume negotiations following the November 2016 presidential election.

- For the army, the FY2017 budget request focuses on existing platforms undergoing upgrades, and the future armoured multipurpose vehicle under development by BAE Systems. Over the longer term, the army is seeking to replace its Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. The request also includes funding for an amphibious combat vehicle programme.
