The French MoD protects domestic defense companies by giving preference to domestic or European companies. As a member of the EU, the French government has a policy to give priority to European-manufactured defense goods, which makes it more difficult for non-European defense companies to supply to the French defense market. The government procures 70% of its defense equipment from the domestic defense industry, 20% of its equipment from European defense companies, and the remaining 10% from non-European defense companies. Moreover, the participation of the domestic defense industry in international development programs helps the domestic defense industry to acquire advanced technologies, which further narrows the opportunities for foreign firms to enter the market through technology transfer and other collaborative programs.
