World military expenditure is estimated to have been $1747 billion in 2013, a fall of 1.9 per cent in real terms since 2012. This represents an acceleration of the slight decline that began in 2012 after more than a decade of rising spending (see table 4.1 and figure 4.1). However, military spending was still 26 per cent higher in real terms than in 2004. Total world military expenditure as a share of global gross domestic product (GDP)—the global ‘military burden’—remained stable, at around 2.4 per cent.
