Key High­lights
The Indi­an defense indus­try is one of the fastest-grow­ing glob­al defense mar­kets. India’s defense cap­i­tal expen­di­ture, which refers to the part of the defense bud­get that is spent on the acqui­si­tion of all types of mil­i­tary hard­ware and tech­nol­o­gy, has grown at a CAGR of XX% over the review peri­od. In 2010, India was allo­cat­ed US$XX bil­lion for defense cap­i­tal expen­di­ture in the bud­get. Defense expen­di­ture is expect­ed to record a CAGR of XX% dur­ing the fore­cast peri­od, to reach an annu­al expen­di­ture of US$XX bil­lion by 2016. This is pri­mar­i­ly due to the country’s age­ing mil­i­tary hard­ware and tech­nol­o­gy which is in need of replac­ing, and demands for defense against domes­tic insur­gen­cies and hos­til­i­ty from neigh­bor­ing coun­tries. The strong growth in the indus­try is attract­ing for­eign orig­i­nal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers (OEMs) and lead­ing com­pa­nies from the domes­tic pri­vate sec­tor to enter the mar­ket. More­over, ter­ror­ism is lead­ing to sharp increas­es in the defense bud­get and a short­er sales cycle, which offers an attrac­tive mar­ket for defense manufacturers.The coun­try is espe­cial­ly expect­ed to demand unmanned com­bat aer­i­al vehi­cles (UCAVs), advanced elec­tron­ic war­fare sys­tems, com­bat sys­tems, rock­et and mis­sile sys­tems, fight­er and train­er air­craft, stealth frigates, and sub­marines dur­ing the fore­cast peri­od. In addi­tion, its expen­di­ture on IT and com­mu­ni­ca­tions is expect­ed to increase sig­nif­i­cant­ly, with a strong focus on enter­prise appli­ca­tions, sys­tems inte­gra­tion, and real-time mobile communications.The coun­try relies upon imports to pro­cure defense equip­ment with advanced tech­nol­o­gy, and, since most of the equip­ment India is seek­ing use advanced tech­nol­o­gy, there will be a sig­nif­i­cant prospect for for­eign OEMs to enter the Indi­an defense mar­ket.

Gov­ern­ment spend­ing on India’s home­land secu­ri­ty mar­ket has increased sig­nif­i­cant­ly as a result of ter­ror­ist attacks, the smug­gling of arms and explo­sives, and domes­tic insur­gency. In 2010, the country’s home­land secu­ri­ty bud­get reg­is­tered an increase of XX% over the pre­vi­ous year, with the Cen­tral Reserve Police Force (CRPF) receiv­ing the largest share of the bud­get. Due to the nature of the secu­ri­ty threats which the coun­try faces, the main oppor­tu­ni­ties for growth in home­land secu­ri­ty are expect­ed in the avi­a­tion, mass trans­porta­tion and mar­itime secu­ri­ty mar­kets. Fol­low­ing the increase in both domes­tic and for­eign ter­ror­ist attacks, spend­ing is expect­ed to increase in sur­veil­lance tech­nol­o­gy, glob­al posi­tion­ing sys­tems, radars and bio­met­ric sys­tems.
