Market intelligence is the key to helping industry and government improve the effectiveness of their strategic and investment decision making.

Our Market Intelligence Cell (MIC) helps UK stakeholders identify trends and drivers and identify compelling propositions, whilst promoting collaboration (UK and overseas) and advocating leading edge tailored UK solutions focused on meeting the customers’ needs.

The Market Intelligence Cell

The UK Defence Solutions Centre (UKDSC) has developed the MIC – a unique, systematic and codified database of market intelligence information. This valuable resource delivers in-depth insights into the international defence market to help industry and government better understand customers’ needs. It is available for a range of stakeholders and Communities of Interest to use.

The MIC provides:

  • An accessible source of information and advice for the UK value chain and government.
  • Help for companies to understand international market drivers through our systematic, codified database.
  • Information which helps prioritise UKDSC analysis, aid strategic thinking, and capability development, in order for the UK value chain to focus on developing solutions that are tailored to the needs of customers and partners.

Global Research, UK Expertise

The UKDSC systematically gathers, collates, and processes market information from multiple global sources, including multilateral 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 the Defence Growth Partnership (DGP) partner companies and the broader UK value chain also helps to improve the quality and accuracy of the MIC.
