The Danish defense budget, valued at US$4.1 billion in 2013, is estimated to register a CAGR of -9.16% during the forecast period and decline to US$2.8 billion by 2018. This decrease in spending is expected to be primarily due to the country's public debt, which will force Denmark to cut its defense budget over the forecast period. Primarily driven by capability building and participation in NATO and UN operations, the country's defense expenditure is expected to focus more on the procurement of equipment for its maritime security, cyber security, missile defense, and counterterrorism capabilities over the period 2014-2018. The country's defense imports and exports are expected to increase marginally over the forecast period.
