Global Defense Expenditure Outlook: 2019 - 2029

Report Summary:

Defense spending is set to grow from $1.91 trillion in 2019 to $2.44 trillion in 2029. COVID-19 appears to be disrupting supply chains and we believe this will create a slight dip in spending in 2020. Rising geopolitical tensions, force modernization and emerging battle philosophies will all drive future growth.
