Scope

- With one of the fastest growing markets and a high-income economy, Poland aims to accelerate the modernization rate of its Armed Forces in the coming years.
- While most European countries have reduced their military spending between 2014 and 2018, Poland increased its expenditure on armed forces at a CAGR of 15.22% in terms of local currency, making it one of the largest in Central Europe. However, in terms of US$, Polish defense expenditure registered a CAGR of 12.90%, which is attributed to the fluctuations in exchange rates.
- Poland’s defense industry is the largest in Central Europe. During the forecast period, the country is expected to spend an estimated US$57.3 billion on strengthening its defense forces, primarily due to the modernization initiatives implemented by the Polish Ministry of National Defense (MoND).
Furthermore, the country’s defense expenditure will be driven by a combination of factors including the ongoing turmoil in the neighboring country of Ukraine and an increased involvement in NATO and UN peacekeeping missions. Defense expenditure amounted to an average of 1.8% of overall GDP over 2014-2018, and is expected to increase drastically to an average of 2.5% of the GDP over next five years.
- The MoD is expected to invest in Land Based C4ISR, Missile Defense Systems and Multirole Aircraft
