Defense Platforms

Vision Federal Market Forecast Study Team

The development, production and sustainment of military platforms – aircraft, ground vehicles, ships and space systems – account for a massive share of the Defense Department budget. The PSC Platforms team examines major dynamics affecting the market for defense platforms. While these areas are shaped by different market forces and customer dynamics, and draw on very different supply chains, there are common themes across aircraft, ships, vehicles, and space. This assessment examines how supply and demand may evolve in the coming years amid budget pressures, shifting DoD priorities, and the rise of commercial providers.
