Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe: Market Research and Requirements Report 2016
The security situation in Europe has changed dramatically since the Russian annexation of Crimea and the emergence of the jihadists flying the ISIL banner. Both eastern and southern NATO flanks are facing immediate threats.
In response to the new situation, many nations have turned the tide on the austerity trend and increased their defence budgets. Large-scale armoured vehicle programmes, from brand new platforms to MRO efforts, have emerged continent-wide as part of the race to modernise and maximise active fleets. Overall, there is a slight increase in confidence in the European armoured vehicles market compared to the previous three years. SIPRI noted a $2bn growth from 2013-2014 for the region, with most of the surge arising in Eastern and Central Europe. Those figures are expected to continue growing.
