Comparative SWOT & Strategy Focus - 2022-2026 - Top 5 U.S. Aerospace & Defense Primes - Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, General Dynamics, Raytheon Technologies
Global Defense Spending has been on a bull run over the recent years being aided by strong tailwinds and favorable underlying forces. The global defense spending reached the record high level of $2.1 trillion for 2021 while registering a 7% year-on-year growth and mirroring the tectonic shifts underway in the traditional geopolitical dynamics and equations following China’s military ascendance and Russian regional resurgence triggering the return of the great power competition between the traditional and revisionist states in the age of multi-polarity in the 21st century. The rise of China & its military bullying in the Asia Pacific region and the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine have collectively led to significant turbulence and a subsequent, massive surge in defense spending across APAC & Europe which is likely to be sustained for at least over a decade. The degree of impact of the Russia-Ukraine war and the subsequent monumental geopolitical shifts underway could easily be fathomed from Germany’s recent, complete turnaround of its strategic defense posture and the rapid swerving of traditional neutrals of the North, Sweden & Finland, towards NATO.
The U.S. defense industrial base is preparing to switch to the afterburner mode with ongoing defense equipment assistance to Ukraine necessitating production rate ramp-ups & increases to backfill inventories across the U.S. & NATO allies, increase in procurement rates over key programs, like F-35 Lightning II JSF, besides the need to meet increasing international demand for Fighter Jets, ATGMs, MANPADS, Missile Defense Systems and Armor, including, Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) & Armored Vehicles with increasing environmental uncertainty & volatility, political tensions & risks of escalations following the virtual evaporation of traditional, rule-based world order.
Further, the development of next generation defense systems and technologies continues unabated to match near-peer adversaries in terms of capabilities and to maintain traditional U.S. military overmatch over adversaries leading to continued funding for development of strategic programs & technologies, with the U.S. R&D outlay having grown by 24% between 2012 & 2021, and which is likely to be sustained over medium term with the U.S. defense budget projected to exceed $800 billion for FY2023. Additionally, Commercial Aviation & Defense segments have been witnessing contrasting growth trajectories with Defense Spending on a marked upswing globally while Commercial Aviation has been recovering steadily from the pandemic blow with sustainability push being a key focus area & a substantial, long term technological challenge for it.
