The sales of arms and military services by the SIPRI Top 100 continued to decrease in 2014, albeit at a moderate 3.1 per cent decline on average over the past four years (2011–14). At $401 billion in 2014, Top 100 sales are still 43 per cent higher compared with 2002 (see table 14.1). Major arms producers headquartered in North America and Western Europe still dominate the Top 100 arms-producing and military services companies (ranked by their arms sales), with 64 companies accounting for 80.3 per cent of total sales. The remaining 29.7 per cent was generated by companies based in countries defined by SIPRI as ‘established producers’ and ‘emerging producers’ (see table 14.2).
