Business Monitor International's Hungary Defence and Security Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, defence and security associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Hungary's defence and security industry.

In 2011, BMI foresees defence expenditure will stand at 1.22% of GDP, a figure which is seen being the high point of spending for some time. It should be noted that this is significantly less than the 2% which is theoretically required of all NATO members.

Any growth in military spending should therefore be viewed as a NATO-led imperative to modernise ailing weapons systems, but this process has been significantly limited by global and local economic circumstances. Defence spending is certainly identifiable as a preference, rather than a priority, with senior members of the Defence Department suggesting that procurement will be defined by fluctuations in the economy, with no programmes spared from scrutiny. For instance, the upgrade programme for helicopters in the foreseeable future is dependent on resources coming from other countries and NATO itself.
