Defence procurement

The global defence industry is one of the most lucrative in the world, with expenditure exceeding $1.57 trillion in 2016.

The defence procurement market in the UK alone is worth around £20 billion; in fact the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) is UK industry’s single largest customer. The UK MOD is also committed to spending around £178bn over the next 10 years as part of their Equipment spending plan to deliver large scale Defence procurement projects and unlock the MOD supply chain for SME’s.
