Future of the Finland Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2022
Finland is a geo-strategically vital base due to its vicinity to Russia. The political and military development in Russia significantly influences the country’s security. The Baltic Sea is a predominant logistic transport corridor for Finland, and Russia’s rising interests in this area is likely to impact the security of the country.

The expenditure is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 11.27% during the forecast period, from US$1.6 Billion in 2017, to an estimated US$2.8 Billion in 2022.
