However, with the total defense spending in the US likely to decrease, domestic defense budget will continue to be driven by the potential nuclear threats posed by North Korea and Iran, modernization initiatives, ongoing military operations and strategies to maintain military supremacy and protect its allies. Cumulatively, the US is projected to spend USD 3.3 trillion on its armed forces over the forecast period.
