- French military expenditure, which stands at US$44 billion in 2017, declined at a CAGR of -4.04% during the historic period, attributed mainly to the erosion in Euro- Dollar exchange rates.The country, being a permanent member of the UN Security Council and NATO, is one of the highest contributors and therefore this active participation in international affairs requires higher spending on the defense sector. This, coupled with the country’s efforts in replacing aging military equipment, along with modernizing defense forces with advanced technology equipment, is expected to drive the defense expenditure over the forecast period.

As a percentage of GDP, the country’s defense expenditure is expected to average 1.8% over the forecast period.
- The French MoD allocated an average of 41.9% for capital expenditure out of the total defense expenditure during the historic period, which is expected to increase marginally over the forecast period to an average of 42.1%. The major procurements initiated by the country include the acquisition of the FELIN system for soldier modernization, the Rafale fighter program, A400M transport aircraft, Barracuda submarines, MK II drones, Iveco PPT trucks, reconnaissance helicopters, naval vessels, frigates, and infantry fighting vehicles.

The French MoD allocated an average of 58.1% of revenue expenditure during the historic period which is expected to decline marginally over the forecast period to an average of 57.9% of the total defense spending. This decline is mainly due to the reduction in troop size and military personnel.
- The French MoD is expected to invest in military-IT networking, transport aircraft, nuclear attack submarines, and infrastructure construction.
