While the US government will cut funding on tank and armored vehicle manufacturing in the coming years, demand from foreign governments will help offset a major decline. However, due to a high starting base, the winding down of overseas military operations and defense cuts, industry revenue is expected to decline in the five years to 2016. Over the next five years, however, revenue will shrink marginally as several factors cut into growth. In particular, the army is set to cut its procurement budget for industry items, resulting in lower demand.
This US industry manufactures complete military armored vehicles, combat tanks and specialized components for combat tanks, including self-propelled weapons.
