DUBLIN, 25 Aug. 2009. Research and Markets has added "The European Defence Support Services Report 2008" to the company's offering.

This report examines support services from military training to advanced platforms. This report provides a comprehensive, business-oriented review of the challenges this sector faces and the opportunities arising from them.

The European defence support services market is undergoing dramatic changes spurred by radical military restructuring programs. For defence establishments, the flipside of the peace dividend was the end of generous funding, says an analyst. Funding cuts demanded radical efficiency measures and drastic restructuring. Outsourcing is a consequence of this. However, for most defence establishments outsourcing is still in its infancy. This low base combined with compelling economic imperatives is driving huge growth in the demand for defence support services that is irreversible, continues the representative.

This report examines:
How defence establishments have arrived at their present state of outsourcing development and what are the catalysts for change?

How budget constraints, strategic and doctrinal shifts, and increasing professionalization have impacted attitudes towards outsourcing

What policies are MoDs pursuing to meet their restructuring aims?

What MoD structures are in place, or planned, to direct and administer the growing wave of industry contracts for outsourced support?

Why defence support services penetration is uneven between sustaining platforms, training, and the defence estate and how this is changing?

Where are the opportunities for companies seeking to provide services to MoDs? Which services will militaries continue to self-provide and which ones will they relinquish to the private sector, however unwillingly, and what form will this take?

The report is for anyone seeking a definitive understanding of the European defence support services market will find this report invaluable, including:

Defence contractors
MoD officials and uniformed personnel concerned with outsourcing decisions
Private equity investors looking to access outsourcing opportunities
Consultants interested in working with MoDs and defence support services providers
