The Essential MOD Guide to Defence Procurement 2017 contains key insights, analysis and commentary put together across more than 100 pages to provide an essential companion for both buyers and suppliers hoping to win more defence tenders in 2017.

But what’s included in the guide? Here are four key areas which will help you take advantage of opportunities in the year ahead.

Defence Spending Analysis

The UK spends approximately £20bn on defence procurement each year, and remains one of only five NATO member states to meet the alliance’s goal of spending 2% of GDP on defence annually.

Our in-depth defence spending analysis and detailed breakdown of UK and global defence expenditure can provide you with key insights which can help you win more defence contracts.

Defence spending can be notoriously difficult to forecast due to the costs of operations and conflict prevention fluctuating significantly from year to year. Moreover, geopolitical events can have an impact on defence expenditure and dictate where money will be spent in the coming year.

However, one way to gain an insight into future spending trends is to examine where the money has been spent in the past, and this is where our spend analysis comes in.

Our detailed breakdown of UK and global defence spend includes numbers on:

  • Major equipment projects
  • Top suppliers to the MOD
  • MOD contracts with SMEs
  • UK defence and security export statistics
  • Analysis of global military expenditure

What is being spent in the industry? What is it being spent on? Who is winning the contracts?
