  • Global revenues for defense companies are on a downward trend, declining 1.3 percent in 2012 and 1.9 percent in 2011. It is anticipated for 2013, global revenues for defense companies will track to similar levels in the past two years, around an estimated minus 2.5 percent.
  • Global defense spending is declining, resulting mainly from reduced armed conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan and affordability concerns in many traditional militarily active governments. However, defense spending is increasing in several areas of the globe, especially in the Middle East, India, China, Russia, South Korea, Brazil, and Japan.
  • 2014 will likely bring high single to double-digit levels of growth in the commercial aerospace sub-sector.
