http://www.Financialbuzz.com - According to a recent comprehensive research report conducted by IHS Markit, the global defense trade increased at a record pace last year, with the value of the market growing to $65 billion in 2015. The United States has remained the largest exporter if defense equipment, supplying $22.9 billion worth of equipment which is a major increase from $12.9 billion in 2009.
