Global Research, UK Expertise

The UKDSC systematically gathers and collates market information from many sources around the world. We also carry out our own strategic research using a wide array of sources, including globally recognised institutions, consultancies, think tanks and strategic institutions.

We collaborate with the UK Government, and we’re uniquely placed to analyse complex information to get the most out of it. Information from Defence Growth Partnership partner companies and the broader UK value chain also helps to improve the quality and accuracy of the Market Intelligence Cell.

Develop Better Solutions

To build the Market Intelligence Cell, we analysed the global defence business environment, including global needs, trends and drivers, as well as country-specific defence requirements.
