        The US defense budget is expected to record a CAGR of -0.12% during the forecast period 2012-2017

London, September 12th, 2012 – With the US defense budget for 2012 valued at US$645.7 billion, the nation has
the largest defense market in the world. Due to its high levels of military spending, a large number of opportunities
are available to companies keen to supply the nation with defense equipment. However, the US defense budget,
which declined at a CAGR of -0.77% during the review period, is expected to record a CAGR of -0.12% over the
forecast period, largely due to the financial constraints caused by the global financial crisis.

Threats from North Korea and Iran, modernization initiatives, an arms race with China and Russia, ongoing military
operations, and the protection of allies are expected to drive the defense spending of the US. The US perceives a
potential nuclear threat from Iran and North Korea, through their acquisition of long-range ballistic missiles. The
tension between the US and North Korea further increased in November 2010, when the US criticized the attacks
carried out by North Korea on South Korea.

The US must modernize its aging fleet of equipment, such as fighter aircraft, helicopters, land defense systems, and
maritime equipment; however, the rising unit cost of defense systems poses a challenge to procurement funding.
The cost of military hardware is increasing due to technological advancements and a shortage of skilled labor in the
design, engineering, and manufacturing sectors, coupled with the rising cost of input materials, such as metal. In
addition, the per-unit overhead costs at production facilities increased due to a reduction in the number of units
manufactured.

The US defense budget declined at a CAGR of -0.77% during the review period, to reach a value of US$645.7 billion
in 2012. However, defense expenditure is expected to register a marginal decline of -0.12% in CAGR over the
forecast period, declining to US$611.0 billion by 2017. Indeed, the government has announced defense budget cuts
over the next five years, which will be achieved by reducing capital expenditure.

Key Market Issues

The US must modernize its aging fleet of equipment, such as fighter aircraft, helicopters, land defense systems,
and maritime equipment; however, the rising unit cost of defense systems poses a challenge to procurement
funding. The cost of military hardware is increasing due to technological advancements and a shortage of skilled
labor in the design, engineering, and manufacturing sectors, coupled with the rising cost of input materials, such
as metal. In addition, the per-unit overhead costs at production facilities increased due to a reduction in the
number of units manufactured.
US defense expenditure is expected to decrease from 4.1% of GDP in 2012 to 3.1% of GDP by 2017, despite the
engagement of the country's troops in missions in Afghanistan and many other countries worldwide. Overall, the
country's defense expenditure is forecast to decrease from US$645.7 billion in 2012 to US$611.0 billion in 2017,
leading to a reduction in procurement funding. Such a reduction has had a negative impact on a number of
defense projects, and has resulted in delays and cancellations.
With the US aiming to reduce the defense expenditure by US$34.7 billion during 2012-2017, and rising personnel
and health costs, the country's capital expenditure on defense is anticipated to decrease. Furthermore, the
government is encouraging companies throughout the defense market to increase the efficiency of the
organizations and sell unprofitable units. As a result, defense companies will be compelled to take greater risks
and accept lower profits on the limited number of available government contracts. Due to a combination of the
above factors, unemployment is expected to increase, negotiations with suppliers and customers will become
tense, and efforts to reduce expenses will increase across the board.About Strategic Defense Intelligence
