The Global Defense spending is witnessing growth as of late driven by the evolution of traditional world order marked by deterioration of traditional rule based decision making and Russian resurgence, growing threat from terrorism & extremism, ongoing conflict in the Middle East and alteration of regional dynamics in the Asia-Pacific region with rapid military build-up by China & continued nuclear antics being played by North Korea. All of these have collectively been driving defense spending across most key nations globally with the upward growth trend likely to be sustained over medium term. Replacement of old, ageing cold war legacy hardware is going to drive growth across most traditional markets, led by, North America and Europe while acquisition of new hardware & systems, aimed at strengthening & expansion of capabilities, will be the key to growth across emerging markets based in the Middle East & APAC regions, led by Saudi Arabia & India respectively. The trend translates into significant growth opportunities for leading industry OEMs over medium term with a number of key, big ticket defense programs already initiated or under consideration across most markets globally.

The growth in defense spending is also being propelled by technological evolutions & radical innovations being pursued & delivered by the industry value chain driving the generational leap in strategic as well as operational capabilities while providing significant incentive through optimized operating economics for the impending need for replacement of legacy, cold war era systems & hardware, as evinced by the recent state of developments over the JMR-FVL (Joint Multi-Role, Future Vertical Lift), JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicles) & the Next Generation, B-21 Raider Strategic Bomber programs respectively.

The Commercial Aviation sector, too, is in the middle of a second golden age driven by steady & rapid growth in air traffic coupled with a number of favorable macroeconomic forces and growth drivers spearheaded by technological evolution with specific reference to propulsion technologies and a low crude oil price environment which has been boosting airlines profitability globally.
