The security and defence industry are a leading economic sector with more than 100 billion euros of annual turnover only in the European market.

Italian industrial companies have been facing for years the challenges of balanced growth and a progressive structuring of their processes to withstand competition in international markets. Whether they are already large and established companies, or small businesses, whether they are sector leaders or second-tier suppliers, they all have to address the same issues: from the definition of foreign markets best suited to internationalization or export, to the evaluation of the best alliances to ensure the success of its products to the consolidation of distribution networks and go-to-market models. BDB has a very large and in-depth experience in various sectors of these industrial areas. The projects of our clients have brought us to various countries, and we are working on a very wide range of issues in different businesses to support the development and growth of the companies we follow.

Budgets allocated to security and defence projects are currently increasing and offer all companies operating in the sector real growth prospects providing these companies succeed in innovating, in improving their commercial capability, in creating new synergies through technology partnerships or for example by carrying out major programs in joint industrial cooperation, in building new production sites to get closer to their customers and reduce their production costs and in expanding their offer of valued services to reduce their dependency on selling only products and systems.

BDB’s experience in security and defence has been built around a succession of sizable, structuring and high-tech projects and relies on a number of national and international prime contractors that generally also work in the civil sector, but also on a growing number of innovative SMEs that usually operate as suppliers.
