LONDON, 27 March 2012. India's strong and dynamic growth in military spending will continue through the next decade, as the Indian government seeks to fulfill ambitious defense modernization plans. India will spend $38.51 billion on defense in 2012, according to Visiongain’s latest report, “The Indian Defence Market 2012-2022.”

"Despite the continued existence of restraints on the market such as slow tender processes and a dominant state sector, huge opportunities exist for a wide variety of defense firms. Those who are willing to work within the Indian government framework for indigenization of production will find themselves in a potentially long-term and lucrative arrangement," says the report’s author.

Visiongain analysts provide forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) for the Indian defense market, which is broken down into revenue and capital expenditure, as well as for eight submarkets that together form the overall capital expenditure figure. The report provides profiles of leading public, private, joint venture, and international companies operating within the market, and includes interviews with experts in the field of Indian defense, providing specialist insight alongside Visiongain analysis.
