Table of Contents

Global Defense Spending has been on a steady upswing since the past couple of years with the same reaching the $1.8 trillion mark for 2018, the highest level since the post cold war low of 1998, while registering a 2.6% year on year growth driven by the radical transformation of geopolitical dynamics and equations with the dismantling of traditional rule based world order and the transition away from the typical unipolar world, which had prevailed since the end of Cold war. The same has been further exacerbated by the Trump led U.S. administration’s squandering of the traditional global leadership role under the “America First” policy which has led to realignment of relationships with the key NATO & other allies with the mandate to increase defense spending to the 2% level of GDP.

The Global Defense Spending is led by the U.S. & China which collectively accounted for over 50% of the total for 2018 with the U.S. registering its first major increase in defense spending since 2010. The continued development of military capabilities by China & the resurgence of Russia as a key regional power over the years have already induced a shift in the overall U.S. strategy towards competition with near peer adversaries as against counter-terrorism operations, which had been the focus earlier. This shift in strategic focus entails fast tracked procurement of systems & hardware to maintain numerical superiority, rapid development & deployment of next generation capabilities to plug existing & potential capabilities gaps and to retain the traditional, long standing strategic capabilities overmatch against adversaries along with continued R&D pursuits to maintain technological edge.

The modernization & upgrade of existing armor and replacement of existing vehicle platforms with proven technologies and current, off the shelf solutions; while avoiding expensive scratch up solutions entaling multiple risks & long development horizons; is providing significant growth opportunities to the U.S. based defense industrial base as showcased by the initiation of a number of new, large ticket defense procurement programs over the recent years, in the land systems domain, which include, JLTV for replacement of ageing & obsolete HMMWVs, Capabilities upgrades for the in-service M1 Abrams MBTs, M2 Bradley & Strykers fleets along with New contract Awards for AMPV, MPF & ACV 1.1 programs.

The modernization, upgrade & replacement of legacy land systems hardware continues unabated across most parts of the world and is providing significant growth avenues for most leading manufacturers of armored vehicles, as showcased by the Rheinmetall’s win in Australia’s hotly contested Land 400 Phase 2 program, worth up to $5 billion, with its Boxer platform in 2018 and a strong contention in the upcoming Phase 3 of the program. In Europe, the U.K.’s modernization drive for its armored vehicles continues amid budgetary constraints & uncertainties with the country handing out contracts to GDELS for supplying it with over 500 AJAX tracked vehicles earlier worth over £3.5 billion, likely to downselect amongst the final 2 contenders for the Challenger 2 MBT update in 2019 and is looking to tap Rheinmetall’s Boxer platform with a requirement for over 500 vehicles worth £4.4 billion. Similar comprehensive modernization drives are underway across France, under its Project Scorpion, and Germany which is procuring Puma IFVs & looking towards a successor for its Leopard 2 MBTs under the joint Franco-German Main Ground Combat System (MGCS).

Thus, with acknowledgement of strong external threat perceptions & evolution of the threat spectrum for armor in form of IEDs, RPGs & ATGMs, there is political consensus on fast tracked modernization, upgrade & replacements, which have been further corroborated by technological developments by the industry which are promising next generation capabilities at an affordable TCO. The U.S. based defense industrial base, thus, is readily gearing up with a spurt in activity and is looking forward to a long & much anticipated activity boom with most OEMs reinvigorating their industrial bases, in line with the age of disruptive technologies, led by digitalization, additive manufacturing, unmanned & optionally manned operating capabilities & artificial intelligence, for making the most of this current phase of demand upswing.
