Sales of arms and military services in 2012 by the 100 largest arms-producing and military services companies worldwide (excluding China)—the SIPRI Top 100—totalled $395 billion, down 4 per cent in real terms since 2011 (see table 4.7). This is the second consecutive fall in sales of the Top 100, but the total is still 29 per cent higher in real terms than in 2003. Indeed, despite the recent falls, the total arms sales of the Top 100 has grown by 45 per cent in real terms since SIPRI's current data series began, in 2002.
