The UK is one of the major military spenders across the world. Counter terrorism measures and peacekeeping operations have been key factors stimulating defense spending in the UK and are expected to do the same over the forecast period. Currently, the UK MoD is embarking on budget cuts, a trend expected to continue until 2017, after which, the government will increase the budget slightly. The budget cut is primarily due to the government’s steps to curb its overall expenditure through the restructuring of operations, efficiency enhancements, and erasing redundancy. Another contributing factor is the end of the Afghanistan war and planned withdrawal of troops from the region by the end of 2014. Over the forecast period, the capital expenditure share of the total defense budget is expected to increase steadily due to the government’s procurement plans.
