Global Defense Spending has been on a major upswing over the recent years spurred by the return of the great power competition amongst the leading global powers. The focus, thus, has been on equipment upgrade, modernization & recapitalization apart from capabilities revitalization and increased R&D outlays towards development of next generational & game changer technologies. The United States continues to retain & maintain its traditional overmatch over adversaries & pole position driven by the nation’s significant focus & investments towards R&D while the Chinese ascension & Russian resurgence continues unabated.
Global Defense Spending, standing at $1.98 trillion for 2020, has been growing at a scorching pace since the onset of this great power competition with the growth rate, pegged at 3.6% for 2019 & 2.6% for 2020, almost paralleling the Cold War-era highs. The Middle East, Eastern Europe & the Asia-Pacific regions remain the epicentre of ongoing geopolitical turbulence with political instability, ongoing conflicts & territorial disputes reigning supreme across these regions. The same has also been driving demand for military equipment across these regions which has led to a surge in arms imports & initiation of indigenous, large scale defense programs over the recent years with the Asia-Pacific region bagging the top spot, a trend which is likely to be sustained over medium term.
This return to the age of multipolarity, marked by the onset of great power competition at the world stage & marking the effective resurgence of the age of realism, has simultaneously witnessed the onset of the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The economic impact of the pandemic & the funding of the relief efforts underway across the globe, are likely to put significant pressure on government finances across most parts of the world. However, their impact on defense spending is likely to be limited & confined to non-strategic defense programs. Most strategic & long term defense programs, as well as technology development efforts, are likely to be more or less sustained going forward. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to take the lead, in terms of projected defense spending growth rate going forward, with most global industry OEMs keenly eyeing the region while scouting for growth opportunities for the medium term.
