Fairfax Defence Statistics is a private enterprise specialising in the provision of timely financial statistics on international government defence spending and defence equipment market sectors. We cover the range of defence financial statistics for general and bespoke applications, including:

  • Aggregate government defence spending, budgets, and projected future spending – global, regional or country-specific.

  • Disaggregated government defence spending, budgets, and projected future spending – by function: personnel, O&M, R&D, equipment, procurement and construction.

  • Aggregate defence equipment markets – global, regional, and country-specific

Defence equipment market sectors and sub-sectors – global, regional, and country-specific


We aim to provide the client with the raw data for market valuation and risk. The focus of Fairfax Defence Statistics is the first stage of market analysis. We aim to provide reliable and timely raw data in order that the client may establish a firm foundation for defence market analysis. Our data are presented in transparent format in order that the client has a solid basis for market valuation and associated risk assessment. We provide a supporting service for data interpretation. Clients typically perform their own market assessments.
