LONDON, March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2017 edition of this annual publication provides comprehensive analysis and key insights into the Strategies & Plans being formulated, developed and pursued by Europe's 5 Leading 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. Brexit & the arrival of Trump have already accelerated the talks amongst key European nations for increased military cooperation for a common European defense.
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.
Europe, the traditional armor stronghold, is racing ahead to replace its ageing, cold war legacy platforms while facing a hectic pace of activities & looming Russian conventional threat backed by development of third generation armor as well as related technological advances. Russian activities in Eastern Europe & the Baltics have already driven a significant increase in defense spending across a number of states based across Europe with a significant focus & emphasis being placed on land forces, armor & air defenses. A number of large, big ticket defense modernization & replacement programs have already been initiated, announced or are in the pipeline stage across a number of European states aimed at replacement of old, outdated armor, led by the U.K., France, Poland & a number of other European states. Impending upgrades to traditional European MBTs, including the Challenger 2, Leopard 2 & Leclerc, too, have already been or are in the process of being rolled out now along with a number of new IFV & APC procurement programs being initiated. The numbers are likely to go up further over near to medium term with the NATO's defense spending mandate compliance likely to become a key point of contention amongst the U.S. and European allies.

The report also provides a comprehensive SWOT framework analysis on all the 5 leading industry OEMs covered in the report providing useful insights into each player's respective strengths and weaknesses.
