18 Mar 13. Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Armoured Vehicle Upgrade & Retrofit Market 2013-2023. Thanks to decades of investment in the development and manufacturing of new systems to protect troops during the counterinsurgency campaigns of Iraq and Afghanistan, the majority of the armoured vehicle upgrade and retrofit market is made up of spending by the USA and its allies. However, with the drawdown of US and NATO forces from Afghanistan imminent, the future of the US’s dominance in this sector is uncertain. Vision gain assesses that the global armoured vehicle upgrade & retrofit market will amount to $4.97bn in 2013. Alongside budget cuts in some of the world’s largest defence budgets, an end to the impetus to spend money on the protection of troops deployed overseas will undoubtedly cause a major contraction in some parts of the market. However, although contracts for the improvement of mine resistant ambush protected vehicles (MRAPs) are indeed a dominant influence in 2013, to focus solely on the inevitable post-Afghanistan contraction would be to misjudge a market which is expected to prove surprisingly resilient.

20 Mar 13. A new Deloitte report that analyzes the U.S. aerospace and defense (A&D) sector’s financial performance found that defense revenues and earnings continued to decrease, while commercial aerospace continued double digit revenue growth in 2012. Defense firms revenue decreased 1.5 percent and earnings fell 7.4 percent, while commercial aerospacerevenue increased 18.3 percent and earnings increased by 13.2 percent. On March 1, 2013, an additional budget reduction associated with the automatic “sequester” took place, due to inaction on a new budget proposal, resulting in $46bn in annual defense cuts. Assuming that these cuts will be proportional and that the entire amount remains in subsequent congressional actions, it is estimated that up to another 12 percent, or $25bn, of defense and government contractor budgets are likely to be impacted for a combined total of
