    The defense industry has a better evolution of stock value than other industries because of the unique characteristics that insulate this industry from other industries. Some of these characteristics, which are only found within the defense industry, include the fact that most occurrences that drive down other stocks don't impact the defense industry, In addition, the largesse of the United States defense industry, which is larger and has more funding than the next 12 military powers all together, enables the U.S. defense industry to dominate the market on a scale that is unseen in other industries. The trade treaties that exist within the defense industry, provide exemptions on military purchases that do not exist in other industries, which enables the industry the autonomy and ability to skirt rules that other industries adhere to in regard to international transactions while also not having to worry about foreign competitors infringing upon their market. It is also highly resilient to any market changes that negatively impact other industries such as volatility within the market.
