Defense Naval Industry

   January 1, 2013
The global defense naval industry is expected to reach $17.5 billion by 2020. The industry is highly consolidated, with high government involvement and capital intensity, with the top five and top eight players dominating the market. Defense contractors will focus on developing countries and, to a certain extent, has already done so to the extent that regulatory agencies permit. Investment in target regions will be critical to future market success.

Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the defense naval segments and presents its findings in “Global Defense Naval Industry 2013-2020: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis”. The industry comprises manufacturers of ships such as submarines and surface warships such as aircraft carriers, cruisers, and destroyers.

The report highlights the major challenges faced by the industry, which is facing funding problems due to the overall economic environment and competing budget priorities. The industry is highly regulated by numerous domestic and international laws. Companies operating in the industry are bound to face fines, penalties, debarment, or suspension from receiving additional contracts if their business does not comply with the regulations

The study considers the key drivers of the industry. Multiyear contracts, order backlogs, and high volume of sales by major players boosted the industry. Strategic M&A and training programs are conducted to work closely with major customers. Growth potential in other regions, including the Middle East and Asia Pacific provide opportunities for growth.

This study is intended to provide industry leaders with a Competitive Benchmarking of the global defense naval industry.
