This will also translate to the defense industry sector opportunity
continuing its momentum as it is tasked with providing new capabilities,
as well as upgrading existing platforms and systems through
technology-focused investment. The total available market (TAM) for the
defense industry will grow to $827.0 billion by 2027.

Strategy Analytics' 2018 global defense analysis is based on an
assessment of 95 countries that spent a minimum of $500 million on their
annual defense in 2017. Strategy Analytics' outlook for global defense
spending is based on baseline information from SIPRI (Stockholm
International Peace Research Institute); information on the SIPRI data
can be found at

This is followed by an individual assessment of each of the countries,
looking at a range of factors including GDP growth, threat perception
and political intent on force modernization and indigenization of the
local defense industry covering a ten-year timeframe. Strategy Analytics
defense spending outlook forecast is based on a range of factors used to
assess global, regional and country-by-country analysis of overall
military spending covering procurement (including R&D), services,
personnel, infrastructure etc. This in turn provides the basis for
forecasting platform, system, subsystem and enabling technology spend
that underpins subsequent forecasts.

"Spending on radar, EW and communications will be some of the priorities
for defense spending along with Command and Control (C2), Computers,
EO-IR (electro-optical and infrared) sensors, navigation and smart
weapons," predicts Asif Anwar, Director of the ADS service.
"While the overall defense spending profile maintains an upwards
trajectory, to successfully capture the underlying opportunities at
countries operating at differing levels of sophistication and defense
spending prioritization, will require the defense industry to understand
the tailoring required for partnerships, capabilities and solutions."
