The global defense vehicle industry is expected to experience steady growth over the next eight years and reach revenues of approximately $130.6 billion in 2020. Threats of terrorism, instability in the Middle East, and uncertainty in world affairs will influence defense budget outlays for many nations. Unmanned combat aircraft, multi-mission tactical vehicles, and better-armed protective vehicles represent unmet needs that are likely to be the driving forces in defense vehicle industry growth.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and business research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the industry and presents its findings in “Global Defense Vehicle Industry Analysis 2012-2020: Trends, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.” The global defense vehicle industry comprises manufacturers of military aircraft, land vehicles, and naval systems. Industry products are used by military forces, law enforcement, border patrol, corporations, and other special security forces. The industry is highly consolidated in terms of suppliers and buyers, and is highly dependent on government spending.

As indicated in the study, due to international conflicts and increasing geopolitical instability, demand for new and advanced land protective vehicles is expected to increase. This increase in demand is likely to be driven by emerging economies, such as India, China, and Brazil. Significant opportunities exist for advanced multi-purpose vehicles and armored combat vehicles required for military operations in the Middle East. Demand in naval systems may fluctuate over the forecast period. Lucintel research estimates approximately 3,000 new ships to be built worldwide over the next 20 years. North America is most likely to experience a decline in spending trends.

This aerospace market report provides an overview of the industry and tracks three segments: military aircraft, land vehicles, and naval systems for industry performance in four geographic regions.
