World military expenditure is estimated to have reached $1739 billion in 2017, the highest level since the end of the cold war. This represents 2.2 per cent of global gross domestic product (GDP) or $230 per person (see section I and table 4.1 in this chapter). Total global expenditure in 2017 was marginally higher compared with 2016, up by 1.1 per cent in real terms.
