- India has a coastline, land frontier, island territories, airspace, and crucial offshore installations to defend against the various potential security threats. As a result, it is highly necessary for the Indian Armed Forces to be prepared to repel any external threat. The Indian Government is therefore continuously focusing on improving the country’s existing defense infrastructure. Only 40% of the defense needs are currently fulfilled by the domestic defense industry and the rest is imported from various countries of the world.

- The Indian Government has identified the need to build a strong and self-sustaining defense sector as a top priority. This has prompted the Indian MoD to consistently allocate an increasing share of its budget toward the defense sector, a trend that is expected to continue over the forecast period. Historic data shows that India invested US7.7 billion in the defense sector during 2014-2018, and this is expected to increase to US7.5 billion over 2019-2023.

- Historic data shows the average capital expenditure allocation of the total Indian defense budget was averaging 33.2%, and the allocation is expected to decline marginally during the forecast period to an average of 30.6%.

- The Indian MoD is expected to invest in submarines, multi-role aircrafts, corvettes, tanks, artillery guns, Multi Barrel Rocket Launchers (MBRL), helicopters, submarines, surface-to-air missiles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and frigates among others.
