Norway Defense Market – Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2026

Norway Defense Market – Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2026 report provides the market size forecast and the projected growth rate for the next five years. The report covers industry analysis including the key market drivers, emerging technology trends, and major challenges faced by market participants. It also offers insights regarding key factors and government programs that are expected to influence the demand for military platforms over the forecast period.

The Norwegian defense budget has been slated to increase despite the global COVID-19 induced economic downturn. The Norwegian government will increase spending to help modernize the armed forces through personnel development, investment in platform acquisitions and developing military cooperation for a stable security environment in the Arctic. Heightened military activity from Russia in the High North region and increased investment in ballistic missile submarines and long-range strike capabilities are key security priorities in Norway's active defense strategy. Norway's defense goals of maintaining stability and predictability in the Arctic region drive military expenditure as Norway continues its role in NATO's Northern Flank, conducting air policing operations in the High North region and maritime surveillance in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea. Military spending is steadily increasing, in line with Norway's commitment to reach the NATO spending goal of 2% of GDP by 2028 in the Long-Term Defense Plan. The 2021 Norwegian defense budget has increased from US$6.2 billion in 2017 to US$7.2 billion in 2021. The Norwegian defense budget is forecast to follow an increasing trend until 2026, as Norway implements service-wide modernization to meet its strategic policy goals in the High North.

This report offers detailed analysis of Norway's defense market with market size forecasts covering the next five years. This report will also analyze factors that influence demand for the industry, key market trends, and challenges faced by industry participants.

Drivers of Defense expenditure include: Maintaining stability to counteract rising activity in the Arctic region

Russia’s increased assertiveness in achieving political, economic, and security goals in the High North is perceived as a threat to the NATO alliance and, in turn, Norway’s security.

Increased acquisition investments for the Norwegian Armed Forces in response to heightened military activity in the High North: Key drivers can be partly attributed to increasing procurements of high-priced platforms as part of a strategy to modernize the Norwegian forces, as seen by the U212CD (Type 212-class) submarine program (four platforms), estimated at US$45 billion in total.
