India’s high defense spending makes it an attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI)
The Indian aerospace and defense market presents an attractive and significant opportunity for domestic players and foreign companies across the defense supply chain. India has the third-largest armed forces in the world, and its defense budget is nearly 2% of its GDP. It is one of the largest importers of conventional defense equipment and spends about 40% of its total defense budget on capital acquisitions. The majority of the country’s defense requirements are met through imports.

Make in India initiative expected to bolster opportunities for the Indian companies looking to enter the defense sector
The Indian government aims to build a domestic industrial base by encouraging procurement of indigenously manufactured or developed technology and weapons systems, under its Make in India initiative. It has also revised the Defense Procurement Procedure (DPP). Original equipment manufacturers and their suppliers are expected to fulfil offset obligations and take advantage of India’s competitive advantages in manufacturing and information technology by setting up manufacturing facilities in the country. A large number of Indian private companies and publicly funded research laboratories are looking to enter the Indian defense sector.

Break-up of primary participants for the report has been given below:
- By company: Tier1 - 35%, Tier 2 - 45%, Tier 3 - 20%
- BY designation: C Level - 35%, Director Level - 25%, Others - 40%

The domestic companies, specially medium, small, and micro enterprises (MSMEs) are expected to be a part of the global supply chain of major defense companies.
