Rohit Beri, Director, Aerospace & Defence Practice, Frost & Sullivan, takes us through the focus points of the economic impact in the defence sector.

While spending had been flat from 2009-2013, there was steady growth, almost 70 billion dollars in 2019. However, the purse strings might be tightened in the short to medium terms, before pre-pandemic level financial stability is assured in FY 2021.
