Key Highlights

  • Due to France’s numerous security commitments as a member of NATO, MINUSMA, and TF Takuba, the outbreak of war in Eastern Europe, coupled with increasing destabilization of the African Sahel, is driving the French government to commit to increased defense spending to support allied nations and military organizations.
  • Due to a historic preference for domestic firms, and in light of France’s membership of the EU Defence & Security Directive 2009, French and European companies possess a significant advantage over other international competitors in terms of market access and commercial viability.
  • Mounting concerns over foreign influence in the domestic defence sector have resulted in increased regulation of foreign acquisitions and investments, consequently reducing the viability of one of the primary market entry routes for the French defense market.
