Defense Stock Directory Released - "2016 Global aerospace and defense sector poised to resume growth" - Deloitte Touche
Point Roberts, WA and Delta, BC - June 15, 2016 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource covering actively traded sectors releases its updated defense stocks directory for investors following the sector.
According to a report from Deloitte Touche, "The global aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is expected to return to growth in 2016 with total sector revenues estimated to grow at 3.0 percent. Consumer & Industrial Products Industry group's 2016 Global aerospace and defense sector outlook. This positive signal follows years of declining revenue growth of 3.2 percent in 2013, 1.9 percent growth in 2014, and an expected decline of minus 0.5 percent in 2015 as found by Deloitte Global in its 2015 Global aerospace and defense sector financial performance study.
Over the last three years, global A&D industry revenue was largely impacted by decreased revenues in the United States (US) defense subsector. The return to growth in 2016 is expected to be fueled by increases in the US defense budget, a resurgence of global security threats, and growth in defense budgets of key nations around the world. In addition, relatively stable growth in global gross domestic product (GDP), lower crude oil and other commodity prices, and continued increases in passenger travel demand are contributing to expected growth in production rates for next-generation commercial aircraft.
Defense budgets in the US, United Kingdom, France, Japan, several Middle Eastern countries, and other nations are increasing at a time when national security threats are being heightened. Global revenues in the defense subsector are expected to return to growth in 2016, as governments equip their armed forces with modern defense weapons platforms and next-generation technologies, including cyber, intelligence gathering, defense electronics, and precision strike capabilities."
