NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2017 edition of this annual publication provides comprehensive analysis and key insights into the Strategies & Plans being formulated, developed and pursued by the North America's Top 7 Armored Vehicles manufacturers for the near to medium term horizon as the industry gears up for a complex, challenging & rapidly evolving macroeconomic & geopolitical environment. The report is unique with reference to its core focus on and deep qualitative analysis of strategies & plans for the industry OEMs. The biggest of the environmental uncertainties going forward into 2017 emanates from the change of political leadership in the U.S. with the advent of Republicans led by Trump & his extreme foreign policy stances which have already sent further jitters to most European and Asian nations regarding the likely further evolution of traditional world order already stirred up by the Russian resurgence, Chinese military build-up, Political Instability in the Middle East and continued North Korean nuclear antics. The U.S. based defense industrial base, however, seems buoyed by the return of Republicans with the likely pursuit of expansionary defense budgetary spending policies.
2017, overall, is likely to be a slightly better year for the global economy than 2016, as per economic growth forecasts. The global economy is projected to register improved growth in 2017 as against 2016 level as per projections by the IMF & the World Bank amid continued challenges from terrorism, extremism and continued war operations across several parts of the world. The projections indicate towards improved GDP growth projections for the U.S., slight acceleration of economic recovery in Europe, steady yet moderate growth in China and slight reduction in growth rate for India given the demonetization move by the Indian government. Additionally, commodity prices are likely to register an improvement in 2017 with improvement likely in metal prices and forecasts for increase in oil prices in 2017 with OPEC's agreement on limiting & managing production levels likely to provide some relief to the global energy sector.
The North America based Armored Vehicle manufacturing industrial base is gearing up for an upswing after a long hiatus the rolling out of some key, big ticket scratch up and upgrade programs as of late has already upped the ante for the industry which is gearing up for an upswing after a brief hiatus with the U.S. Army planning a rapid as well as comprehensive upgrade & modernization of its combat vehicle platforms aimed at regaining its technology led overmatch over adversaries having gained useful, practical insights from a decade of actual combat experiences from its war operations with respect to doctrine, strategy as well as capabilities of core assets. The roll out of JLTV program into LRIP phase, award of AMPV contract, pursuit of M1 Abrams MBT upgrades, Up-gunning of Stryker IFVs & the ongoing contest over ACV 1.1 program reflects the pace at which the U.S. Army has been implementing its modernization strategy for combat vehicles.
