With a total of $611 billion, amounting to 36 per cent of global military expenditure, the United States remained the largest military spender in 2016. US military spending grew by 1.7 per cent in 2016 compared with 2015, the first annual increase since 2010 when US military expenditure reached its peak.1 Despite the slight upturn in 2016, US military expenditure decreased by 4.8 per cent over the 10-year period 2007–16.
