Therefore, it is absolutely vital for organisations wishing to secure their slice of the pie to ensure that they keep up to date with the latest market trends.
The most recent government figures reveal that the MOD placed almost £13.5 billion worth of new contracts during 2015/16, an increase of £1.9 billion (16%) over the previous financial year; but this is just a small fraction of the global opportunities available to UK defence suppliers.
