Preparing for the Coming Rebound in the Defense Sector

Presented by

Frost & Sullivan

About this talk

The resilience of the defense industry has been exhibited in previous downturns, as governments across the world need to maintain a credible deterrent against external and internal threats. Frost & Sullivan's analysis shows that geopolitical factors are the major determinant of defense spending rather than changes in economic output. While defense budgets may see a gradual reduction in the medium term, the focus should be on analyzing the likely growth prospects that the current crisis presents. The new normal may challenge long-held views on ways to do business. It may also change consumer preferences; for example, the accelerated adoption of robotics, AI and machine analytics as defense establishments shift from human and platform-intensive structures toward a smarter and leaner force. Companies across the value chain need to take cognizance of the shifting landscape and try to mitigate the impact in the short term while positioning for a rebound in the longer term. Key Takeaways: • Analyze the impact of economic downturns and geopolitical factors on defense budgets • Track the effect on specific defense programs across the land, air, and maritime domains • Evaluate new business and customer engagement models • Identify growth opportunities to shockproof your business
