Indicative trends suggest a curious curve in the last decade – while there are years when ‘actual’ capital expenditure has met targets, there are bouts of ‘unspent syndrome’ such as one to the tune of almost 40% of the capital expenditure for defence budget unspent in FY15-16.

Military Outlook (India)
  • Make in India & DPP campaign has been the game changer, dealing with several issues plaguing the Indian market
  • Over 75% of Defence equipment are imported.
  • Only about 20 – 30% of the yearly defence budget has been spent in the last 10 years. This is changing with the new Gov.
  • No favor for the private industry especially for MSMEs.
  • Over 50-75 companies have run into bankruptcy in the last few years

Civil Aviation Outlook (India)
  • The country is well on its way to become the third largest aviation market by 2020.
  • By 2020, passenger traffic at Indian airports is expected to increase to 421 million from 190mil
  • Airport infrastructure investment of US $ 11.4 billion under the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-17) 250 airports to be under operation by 2020.

Size of the opportunity 7.9 lakh cr India is expected to spend until 2020 to replace outdated defense equipment and to expand its military.

Nearly 65% of Indian military’s requirement is imported; the rest comprises run-of-the-mill products.

  • Lack of 3rd generation anti-tank guided missiles
  • Infantry soldiers lack modern/advanced assault rifles, close quarter battle carbines, light machine guns, sniper rifles, modular bullet proof jackets and light weighted ballistic helmets.
  • Products that are indigenously designed, developed and manufactured ( IDDM) need a minimum of 40% indigenous content, of cost basis of the total contract value.
  • Products that are not designed and developed in India need a minimum of 60% indigenous content.

Armed forces require over 1000 helicopters of different types in next 10-15 years. Most to be manufactures indigenously, with foreign collaboration, in tune with ‘Make in India’ policy. Will cost well over 1lakh crore.


Half of the firms supplying over 4000 items to the CSD don’t have established credentials in the consumer market. India remains world’s largest arms importer. Saddled with poor defense-industrial base, imports 65% of its military hardware and software. Indian army imports almost 3 times as high as 2nd and 3rd largest arms importers, China and Pakistan

Way forward

  • More weapons acquisitions are necessary, given the imbalanced nature of Indian arsenal heavily tilted toward obsolescence and shortage.
  • Given the manpower intensive nature of Indian armed forces and contemporary & futuristic security needs, a balanced approach to resources allocations for national defence must be considered. Our offering focuses on these 2 points.
