MARITIME DEFENCE AND SECURITY:
GLOBAL AND ASIA PACIFIC OUTLOOK
With continued threats from illegal immigration, smuggling, cargo thefts, human trafficking, piracy drives, and rising global tensions, maritime security is of utmost importance, fueling growth for the global security and defence market. Overall defence spending between 2016 to 2020 is set to rise to US$250 billion2, with priorities shifting towards air and naval capabilities.
Asia Pacific sees more than 50% of global container traffic passing through its waters, underscoring its vital role in global trade. Naval budgets are projected to rise by 60% to US$107 billion through to 20201, driven by its reliance on maritime commerce and an increasingly complex security landscape.
