Matthew Machowski, the analyst responsible for 'The Top 15 Defence Companies Competing in the Middle East Defence Market 2015: Prospects For Leading Military Contractors' summarised its findings:
“The Middle East defence market is certainly among the world’s most densely populated and well funded markets. Military expenditures in the region continue to be high, with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates among the world’s top 10 defence spenders. Defence funding in the region per capita outstrips that of any other geographical region worldwide. Both large and small international military and defence companies compete heavily within this market driven here by declining military spending across Europe and the United States. Many of the region’s biggest spenders, historically heavily depended on the Western nations, particularly the US, for their military imports are now consciously looking into diversifying their provider base – a significant recent development contributing to the growth of the local, mostly Turkish, defence industry.”
