New Defense research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research
[ClickPress, Thu May 12 2016] Germany will increase defence spending over the coming years, in order to move ahead with Bundeswehr reform and expansion plans, amid regional tensions over the Ukraine conflict and migrant crisis, growing threats from terrorism, and in response to NATO military requirements. The government's planned budget increase will be facilitated by steady economic growth, and a healthy fiscal position. In the short- to medium-term, the MoD will focus on strengthening the army's capabilities - substantially gr owing its stock of land systems . The country's highly developed domestic defence industry will capture the majority of new contracts, although we do note that German authorities are working to strengthen Europe-wide collaboration on defence programmes, and will seek to support cross-border projects through investment and procurement over our forecast period to 2025.
