Moving East - How Poland and Ukraine Provide Significant Opportunities for the Defence Industry Market InsightConclusionPoland, with an ongoing 11 billion dollar procurement programme, appears to be the most lucrativemarket among CEE countries for defence suppliers during the forecast period. Polish utilityhelicopter and air defence system projects will be the biggest defence tenders in the CEE region.Defence companies interested in the Polish market should consider the possibility of participationin an expected upcoming initial public offering (IPO) of the Bumar Group to establish a domesticmanufacturing base.In Ukraine, although approximately 20 percent of its defence sector exports are to Russia,companies have been looking to collaborate with Western European suppliers. The most promisingproject in terms of Ukrainian-Western European defence industry co-operation is the UkrainianNavy’s corvette programme, with an expected value of two billion dollars. Ukraine’s lack ofadvanced naval technology creates an opportunity for Western suppliers to provide up to 80percent of the corvettes’ components. Co-operation in this upcoming programme can create thefoundations for future defence projects after 2016 when Ukraine’s financial situation improves.
