Deloitte’s Global Defense outlook 2015

The global economy becoming less militarized, cyber-attacks on the rise in the world’s richest economies and violence and terrorism becoming more concentrated to poor nations – these are a few of the key trends which are driving government mindsets. How will the world and various nation’s respond to these shifting trends and what does the future look like for the defense industry? The world continues to evolve and with it the challenges faced by those planning and spending on its defense.

Deloitte’s third annual Global Defense Outlook examines policies, practices and trends affecting the defense budgets and strategies of the 50 nations whose combined defense budgets total over 95% of global defense spending (the “Top 50”). This year’s report describes how violence from terrorism and battle has become chronic and concentrated in a few very poor countries, and also shows how vulnerability to cyber-attack is increasing rapidly in the world’s richest economies.

Key Report Highlights:

  • The global economy is becoming less militarized, with defense spending absorbing smaller shares of GDP, labor and government expenses.
  • While rich countries are less exposed to battle-related deaths and terrorism, they have become much more vulnerable to cyberattack than their less-developed neighbors
  • The worldwide levelling of military technology may have less to do with underfunding in America than with continued Asian economic development.
  • Accelerating economic development has created new challenges for defense ministries struggling to recruit and retain the quantity and quality of personnel required to operate increasingly-sophisticated defense equipment.
