Report Highlight:

China‘s second largest defense spending globally is driven primarily by its robust economic growth and the desire to bridge its gap with the US in terms of military capabilities, Additionally, as a country that shares its borders with 14 countries, China needs to invest in the recruitment and maintenance of a large number of troops to prevent infiltration or any other hostile act.

The country‘s defense spending is expected to increase to over US$223 billion by 2019, reflecting a CAGR of more than 11%. A focus on military modernization, building technical capabilities and dealing with territorial conflicts, while at the same time contributing to various peace keeping operations worldwide will drive the defense budget over the forecast period and the country will continue to be the second largest military spender after the US.

China‘s restricted access to foreign defense technology due to an arms embargo imposed by the US and the European Union propelled the country to build a self-reliant defense equipment manufacturing industry. The country is adapting non-defense technology with relative use in the military for its defense equipment manufacturing, which will integrate China‘s civil and military industries. These reforms have revived the once ailing Chinese defense industry, and the country presently has the technological know-how and skilled manpower to manufacture fighters, missiles, aircraft carriers, diesel electric submarine, and other defense systems.
