- Being the largest defense spender in the world, with a budget of US9.2 billion in 2018, the US is expected to sustain its superiority over other nations in the coming years. During the historic period, the total defense budget, including funding for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO), was relatively high, registering a CAGR of 2.39% due to the increasing instability fuelled by events such as the Russian annexation of Crimea, the festering status quo in civil war Ukraine and the devolving security situation in Syria.

- Between 2014 and 2018, the US allocated an average of 35% of its total defense budget to capital expenditure, primarily to fulfill the equipment needs of its overseas contingency during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. However, with the country expected to focus on the replacement of damaged and obsolete defense equipment rather than on war needs, the capital expenditure is estimated to average 37.5% over the forecast period. Consequently, the share of revenue expenditure is expected to average 62.5% during the forecast period as compared to 65% during 2014-2018.

- Oppurtunities are expected to emerge in Land-Based C4ISR, Critical Infrastructure Protection-Physical Security and Network Security, Multirole Aircraft and Airborne C4ISR
